Nicolas Cage will be Left Behind

Nicolas Cage’s quest to appear in all films at all times continues with the news that he will star in a reboot of Left Behind, the Christian-themed tale of life on post-Rapture Earth.

To quote SNL, “It has the two key qualities of a classic Nicolas Cage action film. Number one: all the dialogue is either whispered or screamed. And of course, number two: everything in the movie is on fire.”

Based on the novels of Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, Left Behind was previously produced as a film featuring famed Christian advocate Kirk Cameron.

According to THR, this new take will veer closer to the form of traditional disaster movies, and stunt coordinator Vic Armstrong will direct.

It is hoped that the $15 million first instalment will kick off a trilogy.

Shooting begins in 2013.
