Nicholas Cage to star in the remake of "Left Behind"

Nicholas Cage is one of the actors that will be starring in the remake of "Left Behind".

Left Behind is a Christian film based on the novel series of the same name, written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. The original movie, starring Kirk Cameron, was released in 2000 and was the #1 selling video in America in its first week of release, beating out Toy Story 2 and The Green Mile.

The Left Behind movie is the epic story of a group of survivors after "The Rapture" when people around the world suddenly disappear and the world is spun into chaos. It is based on the possible events of the Rapture as described by John in the book of Revelation.

Directed by Vic Armstrong, the cast consists of 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

It is hoped that with the bigger budget and cast, the film will create a bigger impact than the first one. Filming started in August 2013 and is due in cinemas in 2014.
