Bishop TD Jakes plans the launch of Woman, Thou Art Loosed: The Movie.

BEST SELLING author and gospel music patriarch Bishop TD Jakes will be debuting the movie Woman, Thou Art Loosed: The Movie in American cinemas this autumn. Jakes, pastor of the 28,000-member church The Potter's House in Dallas, and the force behind the recent Mega-Fest conference in Atlanta, adapted his popular book, Woman, Thou Art Loosed, which has sold more than 2.5 million copies, to a stage play, conference and, most recently, to the big screen. GP Putnam, publisher of a number of Jakes' books, plans to offer discounts on his titles during the same timetable as the movie promotion.

Woman, Thou Art Loosed: The Movie will release on DVD in 2005. CR
