    Default New Left Behind Movie will be in production in late 2011

    Here is a copy of an email I received from Cloud Ten Pictures:

    October 13, 2010 - The wait is over! Loyal fans who have been waiting five years for the next LEFT BEHIND film, will be thrilled by the news that Cloud Ten has re-gained its rights to continue their LEFT BEHIND film series franchise.

    In the summer of 2008, Cloud Ten announced that it had optioned film rights back to the authors of the popular Left Behind book series and put the development of the next film on hold. As of October 1, 2010 the rights to the LEFT BEHIND film series have officially been restored to the inspirational film company, Cloud Ten Pictures.

    There's even bigger news! Cloud Ten Pictures plans on producing a big-budget, wide theatrical release based on the ground-breaking original LEFT BEHIND novel.

    Cloud Ten couldn't be more excited and has already begun developing a script and compiling the team for this high-profile film.

    "This is definitely an exciting time, not just for Cloud Ten, but for the entire Christian filmmaking industry. We're remaking the original LEFT BEHIND movie at the true Hollywood 'blockbuster' level that a message like this deserves, with top level cast, writers, and production from the word 'go'. This is the movie that Christians have been hoping for and I can hardly wait to get it going," declared Cloud Ten Pictures' Founder and CEO, Paul Lalonde.

    LEFT BEHIND: THE MOVIE, LEFT BEHIND II: TRIBULATION FORCE and LEFT BEHIND: WORLD AT WAR, starring Kirk Cameron and Brad Johnson, were all previously produced and released by Cloud Ten Pictures and have sold over 10 million copies worldwide. LEFT BEHIND: WORLD AT WAR, co-produced by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, was released to over 3,200 churches on a single opening weekend, exceeding the number of venues met by even the biggest Hollywood Blockbusters at that time.

    The LEFT BEHIND book series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins saw great success on a massive scale - in 1998, the first four books of the series held the top four slots simultaneously, and the total sales for the series have surpassed 65 million copies. The LEFT BEHIND book series established a major benchmark in Christian fiction, and with the continuation of the LEFT BEHIND film series, Cloud Ten Pictures aims to reach and inspire others while relaying the series' important themes on the big screen.

    "We're very proud of the previous LEFT BEHIND films. They touched and entertained millions. But just as the books impacted the Christian book industry, and our films the DVD world, we know that the story can have an even bigger impact as a bigger-budget, end-times thriller on the big screen. We can't wait to bring it to audiences all around the world," added André van Heerden, President of Film and Television Production at Cloud Ten Pictures.

    Cloud Ten Pictures is currently in the process of assembling financing and distribution for a new LEFT BEHIND movie, and aims to be in production in late 2011.

    The first movies weren't all that well done, though I don't mind watching them... I hope the next one is more better directed and produced.

    I agree. I'm hoping the next one will show the Rapture itself, along with the Tribulation and the start of the Lord's millenial reign. It's too bad it's going to be 2012 at the earliest, judging by the message I got, before the film is released. Maybe the Rapture will happen by then anyway???!!!

    I saw the movie 2012. It stunk. First John Cusack movie I didn't like. I also saw the Book of Eli. That was a little better. I love the thought of a Hollywood Blockbuster type movie that's going to show events as described in the BIBLE!! It used to be that some of the movies that won academy awards had Christian based themes. Now they win if they have enough sex, murder or special effects. No one makes greater special effects than God!

    If this movie is released before the rapture of the church, undoubtedly there will be some people who will see it and who after the rapture happens realize the Bible is the Truth and accept Jesus as their Savior. I'm all for converts and I think this movie could be a great way to reach people.




    My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
    For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.


    Baruch haba b'Shem Yahweh!!

    I agree. This movie would be a great witnessing tool. I'm also hoping that Mel Gibson - even with everything he's been going through - will come out with another movie that is Gospel-related. I understand that his life has been loaded with controversies, to say the least, but we know that God can change anyone!

    I heard rumors awhile back that Gibson was going to do a movie about the Maccabees, but I guess it was just that - a rumor. I'd like to see him do one about the Apostle Paul, starting with his conversion on the road to Damascus. I'd also like to see him do one that is end times-related, but I don't know what his views are in that regard. I think that Mr. Gibson is Catholic, and I haven't a clue as to what their beliefs are re. the Rapture, Tribulation, etc.

    Could you tell me about the "Book of Eli?" What exactly is it about? I heard of that movie but never saw it. Thanks!

    Gibson can throw his money in the pot but leave him out of any decisions. Big Catholic
    There is a movie out on the life of Paul, can't remember the name of it but it was a OK movie.
    The Book of Eli, is a somewhat dark movie but if you pay attention to all the words and watch it through, it is OK as well. The ending is the best, and I would love to get the words to his closing prayer.

    Alex, I found the script at this link. It does have a little foul language, so I didn't link it, but you can add the www to the front. I haven't seen the movie, but it sounds good.
