The Sales Trailer for Missionary, Statement from Director Anthony DiBlasi

A sales trailer for Missionary was cooked up in anticipation of Cannes and we now have it for you to watch after the jump.

The film is about a single mother (House of Lies’ Dawn Olivieri) who gets romantically involved with a Mormon missionary (Mitch Ryan). When she decides to get back with her ex-husband (Kip Pardue), she discovers that the missionary is not who he seems, and will stop at nothing to get her back.

“Missionary is a film I’m extremely proud of and can’t wait for the public to see. Today we have a couple unofficial things leaking on line from Cannes, and as foreign sales goes, sometimes those things are not exactly representative of the film itself but made to sell the film for an international market,” DiBlasi told us.
