Film Synopsis:

In 1938, Nicky Cruz was born in the countryside of Puerto Rico. Brought up in a spiritual nightmare of witchcraft and brutality, he screamed out his aggression all the way to the streets of New York City. Now in 1958, a time when teens dance the jitterbug, and the city swells with clashing cultures, Nicky stands alone in this concrete jungle. Seduced by the power of gangs, he joins for his own protection and a sense of identity. Nicky quickly becomes the most vicious and feared gang warlord of them all. But just as he reaches the height of his fame, his personal battles bring him to his knees.

The movie is based on the life story of Nicky Cruz who is legendary throughout the world for his compelling and honest message of life on the streets. His life is a story of survival, fear and the matchless power of love.

    This You Tube video is not a clip from the movie is it? That is a joke right? How come no one can find a release date?

    This is just a portion of “Run, Baby, Run” which is a documentary about his life. We wish we could give you a release date but we don’t have one yet.
    Once we get a regular trailer, we’ll add that as well. If you subscribe to our newsletter we will be updating when we have the information, otherwise you’ll have to keep checking back to the movie page.

    As Rick said, this you tube clip is on an amateur level at best, it’s laughable. Nicky Cruz and his story are a remarkable one. I hope the best actors, the best cinematography and sound are used to convey this life changing story. For this film to have the impact the book did, it really needs to have an R rating. Don’t compromise the truth to conciliate or appease any denomination or an audience you would think only watches “Christian” movies or programming. Most “Christian” films are a challenge to endure to the end (quite lame). Not because of the message, but the quality all the way around. It’s been more then 3yrs that we have waited for this release, what’s the real hold up ? The movie Titanic didn’t take this long.

    As I anticipated, There has been no representative from the Nicky Cruz camp (Thousand pieces
    PR people), to address my comment on March 7, 2012 at 8:30pm. There must be someone from CDFb (Annelie),
    who is willing to engage me in non ambiguous scripted dialog on my blog. Now get a real individual who is not fearful of ruffling feathers to address my statements in my previous blog, without circumventing the hard questions and concerns. Who says Christ followers must be timid and non confrontational, in other words, one who compromises the truth.

    The book run babay run was very hard to put down.
    I am hoping the film is just as good.
    Please tell me run baby run will be in main theatres ie the Odeon group etc, as it will be more powerful then the passion was.
    And hopefully the film will be in english.

    We are not sure when this is coming out but also looking forward to it. It should be coming out in English and in Spanish.

    I think it’s fairly common for films to be delayed in release. You don’t want a rush job or half-baked effort, and so in my mind it’s worth the wait. I think this movie is extremely timely with the death of David Wilkerson. My hope with the film is that it not be watered down but that the faith elements presented accurately. However, I don’t think it has to be rated R necessarily. I hope not, as it will limit the number of people that will see the film in the theatre. Teens need to see this movie and see in in the theatre where it will be most powerful. Also, I disagree that all Christian films are “lame”. Both Soul Surfer and Courageous did well at the theatre and had positive messages. Courageous has a particularly direct message of Salvation. I think we need to remain positive…put your energy to good use in that you PRAY for this film. We know that demonic forces will be working against it because of its strong message.

    I read the novel Run Baby Run thrice and it was overwhelming,and now eagerly waiting for the release of the movie for the past 2 years but I believe it will be worth waiting.

  14. C Lewis says

    I can only hope that this film IS
    rated R if necessary to gain the Holy Spirit
    message. The Passion was not neatly packaged
    with a bow. The survivors of the horrors of
    childhood trauma or anyone that has survived
    the attack of satan needs to know there is
    a great Love that awaits them on the other side
    of this darkness. I pray the very best actors
    are chosen to manifest this powerful story of
    Love over darkness. In Jesus Name

    I’m sure it will be worth waiting for, but now we have been waiting and waiting for quite a long time. I just pray that it will be released this year.

    There is a 70’s movie called the cross and the switchblade that is supposed to be about this person and the gang stuff.

  23. Annelie says
    31 May 13, 8:31am

    Yes, that movie is about Nicky Cruz as well.

    I agree with the R rating. I saw The Cross and The Switchblade again. I loved it the first time I saw it in the 70s but, now, it seems rather lame. The rumble looked like something correographed for West Side Story. I’m not being critical, it’s a wonderful story with a powerful message. When I saw this the second time I was thinking how I wish they would do a remake of it and find a director who would be willing to “go there” with making it more realistic. Then, when doing a search, I found the site for this movie. That was about four years ago. What is the holdup? Is money an issue?

  25. Annelie says
    19 August 13, 3:59pm

    Good question, we aren’t sure why it hasn’t be released yet.

    Annelie,,, I’m wondering if I could possibly assist you as the PR responder for “Thousand Pieces” information provider ? Her is an example of my sincere unambiguous responding ability: Good question… No news yet… I hope so… It will be worth the wait… Not sure yet… Keep praying…etc. See, I could do your job or volunteer work efficiently as well.

    There is no trailer, There is no information about actors, there is no anticipated release date, There is no budget information, and no director information.

    Man, I’m loosing interest. Nicky is 75 years old believe, This thing needs to happen and Nicky needs to be here to praise God for this films life changing powerful non compromising message.

    I pray it’s not a typical watered down after school special type christian film. I pray it’s not titled a christian movie. That would alienate many viewers. I pray the cold hard truth of Nicky’s life will change many, and I pray Nicky is here to approve the final cut..

    If you could do some research on the film so we can make some updates, that would be great. Maybe contacting the people
    making the film, etc. – the related websites link is towards the top of the page:

    You are definitely NOT the only one who really wants to see this made.

    The related website link brings me right back here again.. I’ve made attempts to obtain information. It’s a vicious circle. My apologies…I assumed you were the PR firm providing information on this project.

  32. Annelie says
    12 September 13, 3:18pm

    There is a related links TAB at the top of this page – that was where I was referring to. These were the 2 links where I thought you would be able to research more information and help us out.

    I saw Nicki in church this morning . He is healthy and well. I don’t know him personally so I can’t answer why the movie hasn’t been released. I can only comment on his health.in response to Mitchel.

    I too hope this happens soon.

    Is this movie totally scrapped or is there a chance it may still be released?

  35. Annelie says

    This still had a chance from what I understand.

    It’s been almost 4 years since this was announced and still not even a trailer? One would have to assume this film is not being made…what a shame. It’s such a good story.

    I SAW THE MOVIE CROSS AND TH SWITCH BLADE WHEN I WAS IN THE SERVICE OVERSEAS BACK IN THE “EARLY 70`S”,AND UNFORTUNATELY IT WAS DRESSED WITH LATE 60`S EARLY 70`S TONE AND THE ACTORS WERE DRESSED , NOT LATE 50`S BUT 10-13 YEARS LATER. NO LEATHER JACKETS, ETC. EVEN HAPPY DAYS HAD LEATHER JACKETS AND I AM FROM NEW YORK GREW UP IN 50`AND 60`S. AND ERIC ESTRADA WAS NO NICKI CRUSE. IT WAS HIS FIRST MOVIE AND HE ASKED DURING FILMING IF SOMEONE WAS GOING TO TRY AND CONVERT HIM. THE MUSIC THROUGH THE MOVIE WAS KIND OF FLOWER POWERISH NOT GOOD OLD ROCK AND ROLL.
