The young adult Christian book series Left Behind is being resurrected with Nicolas Cage toplining the cast. The book series is about a group of people who realize they were not taken up to heaven during The Rapture, and now must figure how to survive on Earth with all the other people who were "left behind." Kirk Cameron starred in the original movie trilogy that began in 2001. Cage is in negotiations to star, but a deal is not yet in place.

 Left Behind will be the first film from Stoney Lake Entertainment whose founder Paul Lalonde cowrote the script with John Patus who wrote one of the "Left Behind" books. Vic Armstrong, best known for his work as a stunt coordinator for films like Salt and Green Hornet, and 2nd unit director (The Amazing Spider-Man, Thor) will helm.
