The Masked Saint Wrestler Turns Pastor In New Film “The Masked Saint” Published 2 years ago on December 30, 2015 By Trevor Decker Facebook TwitterStarring Brett Granstaff (Vice) as Christopher ‘The Saint’ Samuels, THE MASKED SAINT follows the journey of former professional wrestler, Chris Samuels (Granstaff) who retires from the ring to settle down as a small town pastor. When Samuels witnesses rampant problems in the community, he decides to moonlight as a masked vigilante fighting the injustice. While facing crises at home and at the church, Samuels must evade the police and somehow reconcile his secret, violent identity with his calling as a pastor. Inspired by the life of Pastor Chris Whaley, THE MASKED SAINT is based on the book of the same name by Whaley. “We are excited about working with the filmmakers of THE MASKED SAINT and the marketing team they have put together,” said Mark Borde, co-president of Freestyle Releasing. “A true story fueled by courage and perseverance, we hope moviegoers will be inspired and encouraged.” Winner for Best Picture at the 2015 International Christian Film Festival, THE MASKED SAINT is written by Scott Crowell and Brett Granstaff, directed by Warren P. Sonoda, produced by Cliff McDowell, co-produced by David Anselmo and executive produced by Gary Granstaff and Joe Sisto. The movie also stars Lara Jean Chorostecki (Hannibal), Oscar and Emmy nominee Diahann Carroll (“Grey’s Anatomy,” White Collar) who won a Golden Globe for her performance in “Julia,” Patrick McKenna (“The Red Green Show”), James Preston Rogers (Pixels) and the late WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper in his last confirmed theatrical release.
