The Masked Saint
Inspired by True Events : Husband, Pastor, HeroBook - 2016
Chris finds an ally in Miss Edna, an elderly woman from his church, who gives him sage advice and shares her wisdom in a book of writings. Unbeknownst to him, she is also a wrestling fan and encourages him to use his talents to take action, tricking him into reconnecting with his old colleagues--including a shady wrestling promoter. When Chris stumbles onto a fight on the seedy side of town, his wrestling skills take down the assailant and a masked vigilante is born.
In order to raise some funds, Chris returns to the ring professionally, and things begin to seemingly improve for the church. His life as a pastor and wrestler soon take up most of his time though--not to mention Samuels' shrouded crime-fighter is now being sought by the police. His talent, as well as his violent secret identity, begins to overshadow his calling as a Pastor, and it takes his faith, family and Miss Edna to remind him about grace, goodness and the truth.The Masked Saint was written by and inspired by true events in the life of pastor Chris Whaley, and is now an award winning motion picture. The movie was filmed entirely in Northern Ontario, and features icons of the screen such as Diahann Carroll, and the late World Championship Wrestling (WCW), WWF and WWE star 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper alongside Brett Granstaff and Lara Jean Chorostecki. The Masked Saint film opens in theaters nationwide on January 8, 2016. For more information please visit http://themaskedsaintmovie.com/.
