They’re filming God’s Not Dead 2 (sadly not named Electric Boogaloo) in Little Rock, Arkansas and Hemant reports on the plot of the sequel. It predictably features a bunch of has-been celebrities in a plot about horrible and non-existent persecution of Christians.
God’s Not Dead featured actor Kevin Sorbo as a college professor who demanded that his students admit God doesn’t exist. (Something that never actually happens in real life.)
The sequel is currently being filmed in Little Rock, Arkansas, and it looks like the producers are following the same playbook as before.
This time, Melissa Joan Hart (best known for playing the title characters in Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Clarissa Explains It All) stars as a high school teacher who quotes the Bible in class and gets sued by a student (Hayley Orrantia of The Goldbergs) who believes in this silly idea called “separation of church and state.”
There’s even a big trial…
I can’t wait to hear Melissa Joan Hart yell “You can’t handle God’s truth!” in the climactic scene. Why is it that Christian movies always seem to star these washed-up has-beens from ages past, never an actual current star? I mean, Hart and Kevin Sorbo and, in several such films, Erik freaking Estrada, for crying out loud. What, Danny Bonaduce was too busy? Couldn’t find a phone number for Justine Bateman or the girl who played Mindy on the Facts of Life?
