WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

A Wilmington actress stars alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor in a film that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Allie McCulloch, who owns Actor's Arsenal, an acting school in Wilmington, landed a role in Come Sunday.

McCulloch has a scene with the Ejiofor, who was nominated for an Oscar for his 2014 role in 12 Years a Slave.

It follows the story of globally-renowned pastor Carlton Pearson, who risks everything when he questions church doctrine on the existence of hell and is branded a modern-day heretic. The film is based on true events.
