Apocalyptic thriller Left Behind starring Nicolas Cage gets a release date

Mar. 31, 2014by: Eric Walkuski

The end of days are coming this October with LEFT BEHIND, which is based upon the bestselling book series of the same name, co-authored by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye. Starring Nicolas Cage, the movie has been given an October 3rd release date by Stony Lake Entertainment.

The Vic Armstrong film will go up against New Line's Untitled Horror Film (rumored to the ANNABELLE) and David Fincher's GONE GIRL.

LEFT BEHIND follows Rayford Steele (Nicolas Cage) who is piloting a commercial airliner just hours after the Rapture when millions of people around the globe simply vanish. Thirty thousand feet over the Atlantic, Rayford is faced with a damaged plane, terrified passengers, and a desperate desire to get back to his family. On the ground, his daughter, Chloe Steele (Cassi Thomson) is among those left behind, forced to navigate a world of madness as she searches for her lost mother and brother.
LEFT BEHIND also stars Chad Michael Murray, Cassi Thomson, Nicky Whelan, Lea Thompson and Jordin Sparks.

hmmm? I've read the books and their good, but I don't know. I'm not sure if I see Nic Cage playing Rayford. I'm just not sure about this.

WITH RH ON THIS

This was already a decent religious themed thriller made with that "Rudy" guy. There is ZERO reason to remake this with face actor Nic.

So this is a remake? Are the other 11 books going to be done too? They kinda stopped at the 3rd one.

yes, this is a remake, but with a higher budget than the original.
From what i heard, they are only doing a trilogy combining all
of the novels, but the first one is all about the rapture.

The reason they didn't make more is because all of the principle players
went on to do other things, like Kirk Cameron who did the documentary
Unstoppable and Monumental, including also Fireproof.
What the other principle players are up to now is any ones guess.

They also didn't do more because the 3rd Left Behind deviated from
the source material, and that is despite Peter and Paul Lalonde and their
Cloud Ten Pictures production company, coupled with Series creators
Tim Lahay and Jerry Jenkins involvement.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the info. I'd actually want to see an Archangel movie from the comics series. The comics were nicely drawn and had a good story.
