Who would play her? Who would play the preacher? And .. most importantly ... what would the starships look like?

I don't care who plays the preacher, but which real-life religious hypocrite would he be modeled on?

It would make an incredible movie.

The "reverends" Jackson and Sharpton could be well lampooned in this.

I'd vote for a combination of the less savoury money-grubbing televangelists of old to start with, with the Troll's influence adding a large dose of that Phelpsian je ne sais quoi as the story progresses.

Who would play the preacher??? Take your pick... the first one that came to my mind... not so much as an actor but as a role model for the actor...
"Jul 2, 2015 - We are so excited to announce that the PTL Network has been restored! Pastor Jim Bakker has always felt a calling..." but there are a half dozen televangelists that live like Dukes while homeless live in cardboard boxes within 25 miles of their mansion.

Star-ships, even the fighters would be easy for CGI... I agree with Doc7, this would make a great movie and a tremendous introduction to David for the uneducated.

with a mid level budget (for todays moveies) i'd look to Deadpool (quality not similarity) which had a very small budget by todays movies standards and i would think you could do Apoc Troll at a similar range and do it very well. I would be very happy with alot of new/ no name actors too i don't think you need a name to make this a sucsess
