Channel of Peace announces cast for “The Hail Mary”


A Channel of Peace (ACOP), a Lehigh Valley-centered non-for-profit dedicated to creating faith-filled family entertainment while educating future filmmakers, announced the cast for its upcoming motion picture “The Hail Mary.”
For this film ACOP has cast the greatest number of local actors than any other film it has made here. “We are thrilled to cast 25 young men playing our football team and 12 women playing religious sisters, mostly all our actors are from the Lehigh Valley,” said Daniel Roebuck, actor/director.
These actors will work with Marsha Dietlein, Tim Goodwin, Bret Anthony, Duane Whitaker, Joe Estevez and Roebuck, who will also serve as writer, producer and director of the film.

“The Hail Mary” is Roebuck’s third locally produced movie, “Getting Grace” being the first and “Lucky Louie” being the second.
“ The Hail Mary” is a story of a nun with a profound sense of humor and sense of purpose who discovers a man who needs redemption and to help him achieve it she cons him into creating a football team for her all-boys Catholic school.
The movie will be filmed at the former Mary Immaculate seminary in Northampton as well as locations throughout Northampton, Bethlehem, and Allentown.
