Dunaway hears ‘Calling’

$2 mil pic to be produced by Rico Films

Faye Dunaway will co-star in low-budget feature “The Calling,” from a script by Damian Chapa, who will direct and co-star.

Pic, budgeted at $2 million, begins lensing this week in Delaware, Ohio. Pic co-stars Brad Dourif and Nils Allen Stewart.

Rico Films will produce the pic, with Charles Arthur Berg as a producer and Taffy Douglas as associate producer.

“The Calling” tells the story of controversial faith healer Rev. Leroy Jenkins. In the 1970s, Jenkins’ healing crusades took the nation by storm.

Chapa first appeared in Hollywood Pictures’ “Blood In Blood Out,” directed by Taylor Hackford. Directing credits include Warner Bros.’ “Under Siege,” HBO’s “Dead Connection,” Trimark’s “Saints and Sinners” and Universal’s “Streetfighter.”

On television, Chapa played Lyle Menendez in CBS’ “Menendez: A Murder in Beverly Hills.”

Dunaway most recently appeared in James Gray’s “The Yards,” and Dourif will appear in “Lord of the Rings.”
