I mentioned this on December 12, last year: Press Release: Planned Film About Apostle Thaddeus. Now Stephanie Buckner is reporting about it in The Cleveland Advocate. That is Cleveland, Texas:
Local pastor Stephen Missick of Kings of Saints Tabernacle in Cleveland is gearing up to work with actor Lorenzo Lamas, best known to many for his 1980’s film work, as well as starring in the television series “The Renegade.”
The pair will be working together on an upcoming film project, which will depict Lamas in the role of the Apostle Thaddeus in a biblical epic. The film project, currently being made under the working title “The Acts of the Apostle Thaddeus,” is being produced by Walker Cable Productions and will be filmed in an area near San Antonio.

“The film will dramatize the triumph, trials and tribulations of the early church,” said Missick. “The film also tells the story of the mysterious ‘Image of Edessa,’ a cloth that bore the image of Christ that many researchers believe to be the Shroud of Turin.”
Missick has developed a Kickstarter campaign to help with the funding of the project. If the necessary funds are raised, the movie is set to begin filming in mid-March.
How is the Kickstarter campaign going? According to the site this morning, 14 backers have pledged $4,617.00 of an $80,000 goal and there are five days remaining.

In many cases money gets paid and it just evaporates.
