A new film starts shooting tomorrow [Sunday] called AMAZING LOVE: THE STORY OF HOSEA. I worked on the script with my brother Rich and Greg Mitchell (good friend who wrote Time Changer novel). Kevin Downes is directing. The movie shoots in California and Israel. Sean Astin (from "Rudy" fame) is the lead and Patty Duke makes a special appearance. Pretty cool.

Amazing Love also stars Erin Bethea and Creagen Dow.
Additional info from Rich Christiano, Dave's brother:
Thanks to well wishes for AMAZING LOVE film. The only place we need extras are for the Israel portion of the shoot. Sean Astin, from "Rudy" and "Lord of the Rings" movies, is our lead and should be terrific. His mother, Patty Duke, is going to make a cameo! Looking to cast one more name to be in the Israel portion that starts in Oct. Film should be ready in March and planning a nationwide church release.
