Left Behind is one the most highly anticipated films to be released this fall and Willie is proud of his Executive Producer role: “I am so excited to be a part of the brand new feature film Left Behind. As I continue my journey into the major motion picture business, I am proud to be associated with this project which is based off of the best-selling novel that really brings the book series to life.

Left Behind follows Rayford Steele (Nicolas Cage) who is piloting a commercial airliner during the Rapture when millions of people around the globe simply vanish. Thirty thousand feet over the Atlantic, Rayford is faced with a damaged plane, terrified passengers, and a desperate desire to get back to his family. On the ground, his daughter, Chloe Steele (Cassi Thomson) is among those left behind, forced to navigate a world of madness as she searches for her lost mother and brother.
The movie is based on the New York Times best-selling book series of the same name, co-authored by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye. Based on the Bible and published in 32 different languages, the series has sold more than 65 million copies and is one of the best-selling fiction series of all time.
Left Behind stars Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage (NATIONAL TREASURE, GONE IN 60 SECONDS, THE CROODS) as Rayford Steele, as well as Chad Michael Murray, Cassi Thomson, Nicky Whelan, Lea Thompson and Jordin Sparks. The movie is directed by veteran filmmaker, Vic Armstrong (THOR, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, WAR OF THE WORLDS), widely renowned for directing action sequences.
