In the September 2016 issue of the online publication, Faith Filled Family Magazine, producer/actor Randy LaHaye gave an interview where he offered many insights on the production and future of the Left Behind: Next Generation movie series. He explained how the Twilight series influenced his adaptation of Left Behind: The Kids: "While I was watching Twilight, God gave me the idea to use those kids books and take some points out of them. I would create a brand new, fresh, YA version of Left Behind so that it could really speak to today's kids." His grandfather, Tim LaHaye was able to see a screening of Vanished before his death where he responded positively: "One of the proudest moments of my life was when my grandfather saw the movie and told me afterwards, "Finally, there's a movie about Left Behind that captured what made the books so successful."" Randy also revealed that the working titles of the next two movies were "Rise of the Deceiver" and "The Rebellion Awakens". He stated that the first sequel was planned to begin filming in 2017.

I'm not quite sure why this version was made in the first place, there's nothing new no novel "revelations" 4400 and TAKEN are light years ahead in terms of production values, writing and acting (same basic story without pretending there's any truth in it) If you're looking for actual miracles this film makes Left Behind 2000 almost watchable in comparison. I wouldn't want to write off the young actors on a single viewing as the script is truly terrible and I doubt Streep, Oldman or DiNero could have rung anything out of it. Maybe they can put this behind them dust themselves down and start again. I understand that I'm not the target audience for this film and it is in fact thinly veiled propaganda, But that's no reason to make a bad film
