The Eyes Of Tammy Faye is based on the life of the famed televangelist, who gained notoriety for being accepting towards the LGBT+ community during her lifetime.

A documentary of the same name was previously released in 2000 and notably featured the narration of RuPaul.

The Michael Showalter-directed film stars Jessica Chastain in the title role, with Andrew Garfield portraying her disgraced ex-husband Jim Bakker.

D’Onofrio plays fellow televangelist Jerry Falwell, who became an ardent conservative activist over the course of his lifetime.

Development on the feature was initially announced in May of 2019 when Chastain and Garfield became attached to the project.

D’Onofrio’s involvement with the motion picture was made known to the public that November.

This past September, Chastain spoke to RogerEbert.com and noted that she was particularly interested in exploring a particular aspect of the televangelist’s personality.

Specifically, she was interested in showcasing ‘the idea that you can be loved no matter what and when someone sees the goodness in you, then you are good. That was what Tammy Faye saw.’  

She added that Faye ‘knew how to reach out to others who might feel the same thing because she had empathy for that having felt it herself.’

The Eyes of Tammy Faye is currently set to have its wide premiere on September 17th.
