Kevin Sorbo has been tapped to star in the Hallmark Channel original movie Avenging Angel.

He will play a preacher charged with making a life-or-death decision when a ragtag group of families seek refuge in his church on the run from the powerful Col. Cusack and his lawless gang. The Hollywood Reporter adds the preacher begs the outlaws to spare their lives, but the church is destroyed and everyone inside it gets killed. As a result, the preacher turns away from God and vows to avenge the incident as a bounty hunter. Years later, when he returns to his town and discovers Cusack's murderous plans for wiping out a small community, he is called to action.

Avenging Angel is set to debut at 9pm on July 7th.
