EXCLUSIVE: This Actress May Join Nicolas Cage in Christian Film Reboot of ‘Left Behind’
http://www.theblaze.com/ ^

Back in October, TheBlaze first told you about the re-boot of the buzz-worthy “Left Behind” movie that is on its way. As you may know, the popular Christian-themed book and film series tackled the Rapture and other Biblical themes.

Now, the movie series is preparing for a revamp — one that will star actors Nicolas Cage, Chad Michael Murray and Ashley Tisdale. And this afternoon, TheBlaze exclusively learned that another star is in talks to potentially appear in the film.

According to sources, Tia Mowry-Hardrict (of the popular show “Sister Sister”) is talking with producers about a starring role in the new “Left Behind.”

So far, the role that Mowry-Hardrict would possibly play is under wraps, however the other actors’ placements in the movie have already been announced.

Cage will play Captain Rayford Steele, Tisdale will play his daughter, Chloe Steele, and Murray will depict journalist Buck Williams (previously played by Kirk Cameron). As for Mowry-Hardrict’s potential role, Stoney Lake Entertainment CEO Paul Lalonde did give a few clues.

“They will be a passenger on a plane that the film’s main character Captain Rayford Steele is piloting,” he said of the role that the famed actress could be cast to play.

The film will focus on the characters’ situation during the first few hours after the Biblical rapture, based on the Book of Revelation. Production begins at the end of April in Baton Rouge, La.

Cool. I didn't even know they were remaking it, let alone Nicolas Cage was starring in it. Good for him and the other actors doing this. I have no doubt it will help their careers.

On a serious note though I do really like Tia and Tamera Mowery.

Cage is so into the IRS he will do any movie until he pays them off.

Left Behind: The supermarket tabloid version of Revelation.

Oh well, maybe the special effects will be good, and end-of-the-world movies are always a hoot.

I would much, much rather see the Christ Clone trilogy be made into a movie series, but I guess this’ll have to do.

Ashley Tisdale is Jewish.

Curious that she’d agree to be in this movie.

After High School Musical she may not be getting that many offers.

Her father is apparently a practicing Christian and she says she was raised with ‘mixed’ religious practices.

Can anyone recommend some Christian themed movies to watch?

Of late I’ve seen Christo’s War, Faith Like Potatoes and Revelation Road (Brian Bosworth).

What are some others?

Courageous, especially if you have children and grandchildren. Wonderful, sad and funny movie.

Ben Hur is of course, a classic. The three recent (2005, 2008 and 2010) Chronicles of Narnia films have been, IMHO quite excellent.

While it may seem a curious choice and would be a little intense for little kids, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, is another film you may wish to check out...based on a true story no less.

Oh yeah...I should also include, The Way. Yes Martin Sheen is in it, but worth watching nonetheless.

She’s got three movies and an ABC-TV series coming out soon, with commitments for five more projects including Left Behind.

She’s been in many tv shows and movies since the three High School Musicals.

Given all the problems Nick had with his own finances it would be surprising if his character had it together enough not to be "left behind."

There's been a dark, downer streak in his recent films. I wonder if that's do to his own problems, or if that was just the kind of work he could get.

Of course, it’s just that my (limited) familarity with these books is that they are ham-fisted Protestant-centric proselytism with Jews and Roman Catholics (and basically anyone not a Baptist) doomed to burn in fire.

Seemed unlikely enough for Cage, but a Jewish lady would have more sense.

Can’t believe I forgot to mention this the other night, but another terrific movie is, “The Mission,” from 1986. The story is riveting, but the Ennio Morricone soundtrack alone is worth finding it and watching.

Ashley Tisdale is Jewish.

And Cage is a Scientologist.

Cage has been in depressing movies for a long time. At least since Leaving Las Vegas in 95. He offsets them with whacky comedies and retarded adventure movies, but the dark stuff is always there.
