Rick Santorum, the former U.S. senator and potential Republican presidential nominee, has scored a new job - CEO of EchoLight Studios.

Santorum will head up the Texas-based firm which is about to nab a $20 million film fund aiming to finance, produce and distribute faith-based and family friendly movies.

His staff are now reportedly taking pitches from Hollywood filmmakers. The company aims to release four films annually.

On the initial slate is the western "The Redemption of Henry Myers" about a bank robber nursed back to health by a widow, and a contemporary take on the Biblical story of Joseph.
