Rick Santorum has a new job as CEO of a Dallas-based Christian movie company, EchoLight Studios.

“This is the right place and right time, and I’ve jumped in with both feet,” the former Pennsylvania senator and 2012 presidential candidate said in a statement. “I often say that culture is upstream from politics, and I know entertainment  also can be strength and light for people who want to be uplifted and reinforced in their values.”

The studio's first feature film, "The Redemption of Henry Myers," is slated to be released this fall. It's a Western about a bank robber choosing between revenge and Redemption.
