Hollywood actress Letitia Wright has launched a new production company called Threesixteen and she said the idea was inspired by God. 

Threesixteen Productions is named after the popular Bible verse John 3:16, the 26-year-old actress told Porter Magazine. The verse says: “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

“It was a name that was pressed on my heart. When I was in a dark place, God reached out to me and I kind of see my production company in that sense: there’s an issue and it needs a little bit of saving,” Wright said of the independent arthouse.

The young star has remained “dedicated to developing her craft within the acting industry,” as stated on the company’s website. As noted, the focus of the company is to produce “meaningful content within the entertainment industry.”

In the interview, she also talked about her feelings concerning a “Black Panther” sequel after lead actor Chadwick Boseman suddenly died following a four-year battle with colon cancer.

“We’re just still mourning Chad, so it’s not something I even want to think about,” she told the publication. “The thought of doing it without him is kinda strange.”

“We’re just grieving at the moment, so it’s trying to find the light in the midst of it,” Wright added.
