What do Civil War vampire Nicolas Cage and Christian evangelist Kirk Cameron have in common? Well, if things work out, they will have both played Cameron "Buck" Williams in the Left Behind series.
Nicolas Cage is in talks to Star in the Left Behind reboot
Nicolas Cage is eyeing the lead in a big screen remake of this Christian-themed end of the world thriller from writers Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. This will be the first theatrical feature from faith-oriented production company Stoney Lake Entertainment.
With a projected budget of $15 million, this reboot of the series will shoot in early spring with a projected release date of Fall 2013. Samuel Goldwyn Films is releasing the film theatrically.
The story will follow a group of survivors who are left behind after the biblical rapture. The original trilogy became the highest grossing Christian-themed franchise ever produced.
Expect Eric Roberts and Jeffrey Dean Morgan to sign on in the very near future, and lets pray that we at least get a Kirk Cameron cameo somewhere in the film.
