Left Behind Film Franchise Adds Young-Adult Entry, Vows to Last Forever
Covington, GA - Building on the success of its Nic Cage-led 2015 reboot, the Left Behind film franchise is extending its reach into the world of young-adult film adaptations with it's new entry into the franchise Vanished: Left Behind Next Generation. A production based out of Covington is attempting to ride the "YA movies are the new superhero movies" wave of hype, not realizing that it peaked almost 18-months ago. Undaunted by the cold, hard facts the production hopes to extend their influence and add "young, impressionable teenagers who like attractive people and DRAMA" to their list of loyal fans.
The film boasts a tie-in social media game (complete with YA-friendly spelling of "why am I") that ended in February, but still promises prizes like iPads for competitors who proselytize the most unsuspecting friends to join their film-promoting "teams."
Executive Producer Randy LaHaye promises the film will be filled with "apocalyptic scenes with overturned cars and smoke and fire." He went on to remind the unsuspecting audience being targeted for this film that, as a film, it will "last forever," and there's not a single thing that you, or the Antichrist, can do to stop it.
You can find out more about the film, due out either last February or this September, at their Facebook page, where loyal reader Trinity Anne is expressing her opinion that the film is "already disappointing!" because the suspected Nicolai Carpathia character/Antichrist-figure lacks a "Romanian accent."
