    LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) -- Liberty University Cinema students are working on a new feature film, but not everyone is on board with the idea.

    According to a petition on, some are hoping to cancel the project.

    The movie is called "Commander," which is based off a book called "The Trump Prophecies" where a man claims God talked to him in 2011 and told him Donald Trump would become president.

    According to the petition, students are forced to do this project and it continues to the drive what they feel is conservative ideals.

    Liberty University said no students are required to work on this project, as they can work on other projects with no impact on their grades.

    Liberty said they are doing the project to give their students real-world experience.

    "I hope that people would be open minded enough to recognize the value that Liberty is really working hard to provide to our students and they would value what opportunities are coming our way," said Stephen Schultze, the executive director of cinematic arts at Liberty University.

    The film is already is production and set to start after spring break in March before debuting in October.
