Chad Michael Murray and Ashley Tisdale join Nicolas Cage's remake of Left Behind

Jan. 3, 2013by: Alex Maidy

Looks like Nicolas Cage's remake of the LEFT BEHIND series of faith-based action movies just got a little more interesting. Just kidding, it still sounds like it is going to be a trainwreck. But, at least now it will be a trainwreck featuring appealing young stars!

Deadline is reporting that Ashley Tisdale, of HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL fame, is joining LEFT BEHIND. Tisdale will play Chloe Steele, the daughter of Cage’s Ray Steele character. After millions of people suddenly disappear from Earth, Chloe wanders America looking to find any remaining members of her family.

Also rumored to be joining is CW mainstay Chad Michael Murray. Murray would take the Kirk Cameron role of journalist Buck Williams. It never bodes well if these three are your top billed talent. But, was there really any hope that this movie would be any good? I never saw the original films (and I use the word film only because that is what the movie was recorded to) but I did read the first novel. It was so painful to read i could never imagine reading sixteen volumes of it.

Extra Tidbit: Saying "Based on the New York Times Bestseller" does not mean the same thing as "good".

Hollywood needs more disaster movies, and this one will have a built in base of fans from churches around the globe.

The studios finally learned from Passion of the Christ, and realized that vast majority of dumbshits in this country will be more than willing to spend ten bucks (or more if the 3D route is taken) to sit through a movie that equals Armageddon meets The Omen.

Yea the books were really good and I was hoping the movies would be too, but sadly they were mediocre. I really don't have much hope that these will be any good, but I guess we will see.

The books sucked. They rely on you having an invested interest in the rapture and following apocalypse, which would only happen if you were a fundamentalist believer of christianity. The only reason these books did so well is because of the fever pitch of preaching of the last thirty years or so that we are in the end times. The Chronicles of Narnia had way better writing and it was a children's allegory of christianity.

Zero confidence has been inspired by these two casting choices.
