Hayley Orrantia (“The Goldbergs”) has been cast as the lead in faith-based “God’s Not Dead 2,” currently shooting in Arkansas.

Orrantia will play a student whose family sues her high school teacher — portrayed by Melissa Joan Hart — over the teacher quoting Bible verses in class. Harold Cronk is directing from a script by Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon.

Pure Flix Productions’ “God’s Not Dead” was a surprise hit last year with over $60 million in domestic grosses.

Orrantia plays a rebellious high-schooler on the ABC sitcom “The Goldbergs” opposite Wendi McLendon-Covey and Jeff Garlin.

Orrantia is repped by Dan Orrantia at Haylo Management, APA and attorney Jeff Biederman.
