Best known for playing one of cinema's ultimate MILFs, Lea Thompson (BACK TO THE FUTURE) has joined Nicolas Cage in the film adaptation of the popular book and movie series LEFT BEHIND, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Left Behind chronicles the events following the biblical rapture, when millions of people around the world disappear. Those left behind have to learn to survive in a world that is quickly plunging into chaos and destruction.
Thompson will play the wife of Cage's character. She warns her family of the coming apocalypse, but ultimately ends up pushing them even further away.
John Patus and Paul Lalonde wrote the screenplay, while veteran stunt coordinator Vic Armstrong is directing. The film also stars Chad Michael Murray, Cassi Thomson, Nicky Whelan, Quinton Aaron and Jordin Sparks. LEFT BEHIND comes out in 2014.
