Meriam Ibrahim film, ‘I Am a Christian’ casts Stacey Dash as lead

Stacey Dash will be playing the role of Meriam Ibrahim in an upcoming film about the persecuted Christian’s life, story which rocked the headlines across the globe.
Dash will play Ibrahim, the woman from the Sudan who refused to renounce her Christianity and was jailed while pregnant on Mother’s Day for apostacy. She gave birth in prison and an international outcry helped pressure the Sudanese to free the woman and allow her family to leave the nation.

I Am A Christian is only in the early phase of pre-production as filmmakers are searching for donors to contribute money to meet the film’s $500,000 production goal.

Associate producer Brian Harrington said to the Christian Post, “Presently Meriam is not involved in the project. Regardless, we still intend to give her and her family 10 (percent) of the film’s gross, not because we have to, simply because it is the right thing to do.”
“Once the project has gained momentum, both online and in the news, we do intend to reach out to Meriam and offer her a chance to become officially involved,” he says.
Dash is known for her roles in Clueless, Mo’ Money and most recently, the TV movie Cloudy with a Chance of Love.
