The Goldbergs costar Hayley Orrantia is set to lead God’s Not Dead 2, sequel to the hugely profitable 2014 religious drama. As with its predecessor, God’s Not Dead 2 depicts the debate between a skeptic and an evangelical Christian who come into conflict in an educational setting, but in this outing the roles will be reversed. Orrantia will star as “Brooke,” a high school student whose teacher, played by Melissa Joan Hart, quotes bible verses in class, causing Brooke’s parents to sue.

From Pure Flix Entertainment, God’s Not Dead 2 is currently in production in Arlansas. Harold Cronk is directing from a script by Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon.

Orrantia currently portrays Erica Goldberg on the ABC’s The Goldbergs, returning for a third season this fall. She’s repped by Dan Orrantia at Haylo Management, APA and attorney Jeff Biederman.
