The original LEFT BEHIND movie released in 2000, and was an independant Christian film. It was based on the novel series of same name, written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. It opened seventeenth in the nation and was the #1 selling video in America in its first week of release, beating out Toy Story 2 and The Green Mile.
Cloud Ten Pictures who created the original Trilogy of films is hoping to bring the film to a more mainstream audience. The upcoming film's budget is reportedly around 15 million dollars.
Left Behind follows the epic story of a group of survivors after millions of people suddenly vanish and the world is spun into chaos and destruction in its wake. The story is based on the possible events of the Rapture described by John in the book of Revelation.
This apocalyptic thriller is directed by Vic Armstrong and written by Paul LaLonde and John Patus. The star studded cast includes Nicolas Cage, playing the lead role of Rayford Steele, Chad Michael Murray playing the role of Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron in the original remake), television actress Lea Thompson, and actress/singer Jordan Sparks among many others.
Filming began on August 9, 2013 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and its creators are hoping this revision will help introduce LEFT BEHIND to an even broader audience around the world.
The film will focus on the hours immediately following the Rapture described in the Bible. The movie's website described that it will specifically concentrate on the first few hours and the chaos of the world in the wake of millions of people vanishing with no explanation.
