Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson is executive-producing Left Behind, the apocalyptic feature film starring Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage as Rayford Steele. The film opens in theaters nationwide Oct. 3.
“I am so excited to be a part of the brand-new feature film Left Behind,” Robertson said. “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. It’s a film that audiences need to see to believe—are you ready?”
Producer/writer Paul Lalonde is pleased to have Robertson on board.
“We are thrilled that Willie Robertson is part of our team and that he shares the same vision for Left Behind and its message that will be brought to moviegoers around the world,” Lalonde said. “Willie and I are both on the same page not only theologically, but also in our commitment to high-quality entertainment that reaches a wide audience. Working with him has been inspiring.”
The film is based on the New York Times best-selling book series of the same name, co-authored by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye. Published in 32 languages, the series has sold more than 65 million copies.
