At last, the entire Left Behind series will be made into films "the way it should be done."
Paul Lalonde, the founder of Cloud Ten Pictures, announced his company has acquired the rights to all 16 Left Behind books.
"So, it's finally done. It took almost two years and a roller-coaster ride that I can't even begin to describe. But we have finally put all the pieces into place to do the Left Behind series the way it should be done. Not everyone knew it, but we have always been 'handcuffed' on the Left Behind film rights, because we only had access to books 1 and 2 in the series," Lalonde writes.
With these rights, the company produced Left Behind, Left Behind II: Tribulation Force and Left Behind III: World at War, which kept the characters but couldn't follow the books' story. In 2014, the company relaunched the series with Nicholas Cage and Chad Michael Murray as stars.
"I have been working closely with Jerry B. Jenkins and the LaHaye family to make it all happen. There were a lot of parties involved, but in the end, the vision I shared with the LaHaye and Jenkins families is finally able to be realized. We are going to tell the entire story of the LB series over the course of 6-8 movies," Lalonde writes.
