Forget the NFL, Tim Tebow's playing for Team Jesus next year ... ON THE BIG SCREEN ... at least if a faith-based indie film producer gets his way.
Producer David Dginguerian -- who makes a bunch of Jesus-y movies including the recent "Crossroad" -- just sent Tim's people a letter, saying the holy QB is the perfect candidate to star in his next film.
David writes, "You are an inspiration to so many on the field and off, and I am certain that your passion will also come through in films."
It's unclear how much David's willing to cough up for Tim's services -- but if they're paying for Tim's acting chops, they might get a good deal ...
We reached out to Tebow's reps ... so far no word back.
