Ex-POW Jessica Lynch starring in Christian film

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Former prisoner of war Jessica Lynch says she's enjoyed playing a lead role in a Christian movie currently in production.

As far as being an actor permanently, she says to stay tuned.

Morgantown-based JC Films is producing "One Church," being shot this month in Rock Hill, South Carolina. JC Films president and screenwriter Jason Campbell says the drama explores the possible government takeover of churches.

It stars Lynch, the West Virginia native whose Army unit came under attack in Iraq in 2003. She was rescued after nine days in captivity.

Lynch tells The Associated Press she's having fun this month playing the president's daughter. While she says acting is stressful and probably isn't for her in the long run, she adds she will never say never.
