Duane “Dog The Bounty Hunter” Chapman just paid tribute to his late wife Beth as he appeared in the upcoming Christian movie Hunter’s Creed.

The Christian Post reported that the film, which was previously called “Hunting God,” was partly inspired by the question, “Why does God allow bad things to happen?”

Directed by Justin Jackola and written by Ken Miyamota, the inspiring movie is all about keeping the faith even in the face of great personal loss.

“After losing his wife, a man reunites with his church buddies to film the hunting show they’ve always wanted to make together. Before long, he senses a dark presence in the woods eventually bringing him face to face with death — and his faith,” reads the synopsis of Hunter’s Creed.

Dog portrays himself in the movie, which also stars Wesley Truman Daniel (“Second Samuel”), Mickey O’Sullivan, Ann Sonneville, John Victor Allen, James Errico and LaDios Muhammad. Dog knows about this kind of loss firsthand, as he lost his wife Beth to cancer back in June of 2019.

“Dog Chapman was the perfect choice for Hunter’s Creed for a number of reasons,” Jackola said. “First off, Dog isn’t afraid of his faith. He’s open and honest about what God’s done in his life on and off-camera. In his television show, we have literally seen him pray on camera for help in finding his next bounty. It’s a film about a man’s intimate response to losing his wife to cancer and Dog has experienced exactly that with his late wife Beth Chapman passing away to cancer.”

Jackola went on to talk about what it was like to work with Dog on the film.

“It was a beautiful experience to shed tears on set with Dog while making the film,” he said. “There is a scene where Dog is giving the main character, Dave, advice on taking care of his wife (Kate), who just found out she had cancer. Dog began to weep during the take and began giving real life advice, off-script and from his heart, on what to do for his wife — advice that he had learned when dealing with Beth’s battle with cancer.”

“When we first talked to Dog about the project, he said that his wife, Beth, was one of the main reasons he wanted to do this film,” Jackola added. “The story struck a cord in his heart. The timing was also divine. Dog told us that he had been sitting at home thinking ‘I want to do a feature film’ and our team reached out to him for the role the next day! Dog is a reality TV star, so that wasn’t normal at all!”
