Film Director Tim Chey has urged Hollywood to embrace “true believers” to tell Bible stories, rather than have just big name directors who do not even believe in God, and do not completely understand the faith that a majority of viewers to their biblical movie will have.

Chey will start shooting the upcoming “David and Goliath” movie in Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco in May, and he recently revealed that he will spare no expense to creating a visually stunning and biblically accurate movie.

“We’re going to have thousands of extras, A-list special effects, and it will exceed the epic-look of ‘Noah,'” said Chey in a statement. “Our company was in development of ‘David and Goliath’ long before ‘Noah’ [current box office success].”

Chey also explained why he wanted to make a film based on the young boy David who killed the evil Philistine giant Goliath years prior to becoming the second King of Israel.

“I heard a clear voice from the Lord to make this film. I want the audience to really feel the fear of what it meant to take on a 9-foot giant warrior with a sling-shot and what David’s incredible faith meant to the world,” said Chey in a statement. “I’m excited that we can make a Biblically-accurate film about one of the most incredible stories in the Bible. People are already asking me how they can get tickets.”

Chey will spend at least $50 million to bring one of the most celebrated biblical characters to the big screen.

As a devout Christian, Chey knows the importance of creating a movie based on the Bible, especially with the recent success of Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey’s “Son of God” film.

“Hollywood should embrace true Believers to tell Biblical stories,” said Chey in a statement.

In addition, Chey will release another Christian film in December 2014 starring Cuba Gooding, Jr. The movie, titled “Carry Me Home” is set during the time of slavery.

The “David and Goliath” film is expected to be released in American movie theaters in early 2015.
