Lorenzo Lamas set to star as Apostle Thaddeus in New Biblical Epic


Lorenzo Lamas, 1980s heartthrob and star of the hit series “The Renegade,” is set to portray the Apostle Thaddeus in an upcoming biblical epic.  The movie will be produced by Walker Cable Productions, and filmed near San Antonio, Texas.  The working title of the film is “The Acts of the Apostle Thaddeus.” 
Along with Lorenzo Lamas and Walker Cable Productions, the production crew will include three Assyrian Americans, and at least seven Assyrian Americans will be cast in major roles. This will enable these Assyrian Americans to learn about the art of film-making and perhaps launch their careers in either film production or acting.  Being people who’s heritage the film is depicting, they bring with them an additional layer of accuracy and authenticity.   

The Assyrians are currently facing terrible challenges and persecution.  They face the threat of genocide in their ancestral homeland by Islamic militants groups, perhaps the most recognizable being ISIS.  These terrorist groups are actively trying to destroy the ancient Christian community founded by Thaddeus and Thomas. 
Stephen Missick, associate pastor of King of Saints Tabernacle in Cleveland, Texas, is writing and producing the biblical movie that will dramatize the story of one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ.   The script is derived from the Bible and other ancient sources, such as the writings of the Early Church Fathers.  The film is anticipated to be produced by WalkerCable, Productions of Conroe, Texas. WalkerCable plans to begin filming in early 2015. Existing movie sets at the Alamo Village in Brackettville, Texas, as well as other areas around San Antonio, will serve as Biblical Lands.
