An up-and-coming actor from London has been chosen out of over 4,000 auditions for the lead role in the “David and Goliath” biblical epic, set for an early 2015 nationwide theater release.

Casting was held in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, and London to find the right actor to play David for the big-budget movie, which recently wrapped up principal photography in North Africa and in studios in London, before Miles Sloman was selected for the role.

“When Miles auditioned,” said director Tim Chey, “I knew instantly he was the one. This was the young King David who could defeat the giant warrior. He showed a lot of courage on the set even falling off a donkey when the helicopter came too close.”

Sloman is 22-years-of-age, according to his Twitter account.

“We wanted to find the director, Tim Chey, a phenomenal actor,” added Kelly Jacobs, who helped cast the film in L.A., “so we casted a wide net around the world.”

The film, based on the biblical story of the battle between the giant Philistine warrior Goliath and David, the future king of Israel, is produced by RiverRain Productions and said to have a budget of $50 million.

In an exclusive interview with The Christian Post in April, Chey revealed that the movie has been in the works for close to 11 years.
