LEFT BEHIND is an upcoming apocalyptic action-thriller directed by Vic Armstrong and written by Paul LaLonde and John Patus. It is based on the series of novels of same name, written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, and is a reboot of Left Behind: The Movie, which is based on the biblically prophesied pre-tribulation Rapture. The film stars Nicolas Cage, Chad Michael Murray, Cassi Thomson, Nicky Whelan, and Jordin Sparks.
Without warning, millions of people around the globe simply vanish. All that remains are their clothes and belongings … and an overwhelming sense of terror. The vanishings cause unmanned vehicles to crash and burn. Emergency forces everywhere are devastated. Gridlock, riots and looting overrun the cities. And there is no one to help or provide answers. In an instant, the earth has been plunged into darkness. For Rayford Steele (Nicolas Cage), the pilot of a jumbo jet, it means trying to calm his hysterical passengers who saw loved ones vanish before their eyes. It also means trying to land his damaged plane when every airport is jammed with burning wrecks, all while wishing that he could talk to his family one last time. For Buck Williams (Chad Michael Murray), the world-renowned journalist trapped at 30,000 feet, it means a struggle to understand the incomprehensible, the most devastating event in history. And for Chloe Steele (Cassi Thomson), Ray’s daughter back on the ground, it means trying to find her mother and brother. Lost in a world of chaos, she is forced to head home through a world where despair and rage rule the day.
