"Lisa Arnold is not afraid to champion powerful causes," says Ruby Rock Films producer, James Houston Turner. Among her other films, Ms. Arnold is known for directing Caged No More, a 2016 film that took on the issue of human trafficking, and One Nation Under God, which focused on a student taking a stand for God in a school system that sought to ban such freedoms. She also worked on God's Not Dead and just won a Best Director award at the Content2023 Film Festival, for Bringing Back Christmas, where Hell Creek won a Best Screenplay award.

Hell Creek plans to begin filming in Texas during the second or third quarter of 2024.
