Film Writer Rhonda Baraka & Rockmond Dunbar

It's a miracle of sorts that the movie, from Rock Capital Films, is even being made here. "Pastor Brown," the first movie for screenwriter Rhonda Baraka of Marietta, was originally set in Detroit. Dunbar was already here earlier this year acting in "Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys" and, well, just didn't leave."I said, 'Why don't we do it here?'" he says during a break in production. "We couldn't find the same talent base in Detroit that you have here. We could prep and get everything going immediately. So we switched, and now it's all about Atlanta."

Salli Richardson

Salli Richardson-Whitfield, who plays Jessica "Jesse" Brown, the film's prodigal daughter, was drawn to the part because of the character's wide range — from a stripper pole to a pulpit. "It's a piece that I think other women who are lost in their life will see and really feel that they don't have to be stuck anywhere," she says. "You can overcome anything and find yourself again."
