Johannesburg - Evangelist Angus Buchan from Greytown, who is the subject of the movie Faith like Potatoes, has begun work on his new movie with director FC Hamman.

The film, titled Angus Buchan's Ordinary People, is not a sequel to Faith like Potatoes, Hamman said on Monday at a media conference.

"It is a story of people who have been touched by Angus's sermons and how it has influenced their lives.

"The movie deals with everyday problems that all of us wrestle with at one stage."

Several well-known actors will be joining the production.

Anrich Herbst plays the role of a middle-aged Buchan in the movie. Herbst is best known for his role as Wimpie van Tonder in Orkney Snork Nie.

Human problems

Hannes Muller, former director of Egoli and the All Access production team, Jaco Muller of Erfsondes 3 and Lucky Koza of Isidingo also star in the movie.

Buchan is clearly very excited about the new movie. He said moviegoers will identify with the film and will take life lessons, which they have experienced themselves, from it.

"It's not a movie for Christians. This is a movie for people with human problems. It's so easy being a Christian on a platform, but so much harder to be it at your home between your own people.

"The movie reflects that and will therefore be special."

According to Hamman, filming begins on Tuesday and will take about six to seven weeks.

The film will be in theatres by Easter 2012.

    What's refreshing is that this guy is not in it for the money...

      You reckon? Please!

      Don't think they got the veiled sarcasm dude...So...for you blind half-wit christian fundamentalist crazies...what Gorilla is actually saying: "Oom Angus is milking you donkeys for every cent." "You want to get rich? Start a religion." - L.Ron Hubbard (Founder of Scientology...another bunch of crazies)

    Great, just what we need! More religious nonsense to feed the weak-minded flock.

    Looking forward to the new movie Angus! Blessings to all who comment here - the hearing and the deaf!

    He is so in it for the money, I know the type… they so obviously don't practice what they preach and then a chauvinist to boot! When the "mighty" men gather for the conference, I've always wondered how much they pay the guy… All the big rugby names (to name a few) come with a lot of money. This guy is taking them all for a ride, he might have started sincere in his beliefs, but I believe he changed when the cash started streaming in…

      Don't judge

      Hi Evelyn, I am not a big fan of his teachings. Particularuly the MMC's. However, I do not doubt his sincerity. He still lives in the 'mud" home built for him by his workers to say thank you for what he did for them. He still works as a farmer (not a easy job) and is so very humble in his possesions. Take a moment before making comments that generalise. Angus seems to be cut from a different cloth from the evangelitss we see most of the time.

    Thank you Uncle Angus, for listening to our God!!!! We can only pray for those who commented negatively and ask the Holy Spirit to touch their life and show them that Jesus is the way!

      Uncle - 2011-04-12 22:22 god though says something else - he works at a major bank and is so chuffed with Uncle Angus for making so much money! Jesus is the millions!
