“We’re seeing a number of big, biblical movies on the calendar this year, particularly Son of God, Noah, and Exodus. What makes Left Behind different is that it is a contemporary story that could actually happen at any moment,” says Paul Lalonde, producer and CEO of Stoney Lake Entertainment. “It’s also a historical account in a sense, because it’s based on a true story, it just hasn’t happened yet. So it’s very important to us that the core story not be changed. We had offers from three of the major studios in Hollywood to distribute this movie, but none would allow final control of the story to be left in our hands.”
“My greatest hope for this movie is that people will be entertained and thrilled by it, but also that they’ll go home and have conversations with their family, and ask ‘do you think this could happen, or couldn’t happen?’ and it’ll inspire discussion and closeness,” said Cage.
“I believe it does justice to the novel and will renew interest in the entire series,” stated author Jerry Jenkins. “It is the best movie I have ever seen on the rapture,” added Tim LaHaye.
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.
