Watch the trailer for ‘Heaven is for Real’ starring Greg Kinnear

A new spiritual film is setting out to reach beyond a faith-based audience. The first trailer dropped for Heaven is for Real and features star Greg Kinnear in the film directed by Randall Wallace.

Greg Kinnear Heaven is for Real photoThe film is based on the book by Pastor Todd Burpo, re-creating the true story of his young son’s insistence that he’s visited heaven. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event.

“I’m amazed it got to me,” Wallace (We Were Soldiers,  Secretariat) told EW of Burpo’s book. “I’ve been around churches all my life and I’ve been exposed to a lot of material that would be categorized as inspirational. Most of the stuff is anything but inspirational for me. But I found this story to have an incredible intrigue and emotional power,” he said. “It speaks to the cynic in most of us.”

Kinnear plays Todd Burpo and Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) who visits heaven during a near death experience.

Mike Mohrhardt has been cast as Jesus with Jacob Vargas, Ali Tataryn as two archangels.

Heaven is for Real hits theaters on April 16, 2014.
