September 21, 2016 - Finding Carter
LOS ANGELES (Christian Examiner) – It’s no tip that Left Behind series co-author Tim LaHaye was not a large fan of a strange movies.
The reasons were varied, yet among them – according to grandson Randy LaHaye – was that he “felt they missed a overdo intensity that a books so entirely realized.”
“A lot of a people who review them pronounced how most they enjoyed giving these books to their unsaved friends and families, since they would get sucked into a story and it would hint a doubt of almighty things in their possess lives,” Randy LaHaye, of Tim LaHaye Productions, told a Christian Examiner. “But my grandfather gave a film rights divided prolonged before a books ever became unequivocally popular.”
Although a adult array was extravagantly popular, Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins also wrote a Left Behind kids’ array that was well-received by children and teenagers – a array that LaHaye and Jenkins never did sale to film studios.
On Wednesday, Sept. 28, a film desirous by a kids’ array hits theaters, hardly dual months after Tim LaHaye upheld divided – and after he gave it his full approval. Called Vanished – Left Behind: Next Generation (PG-13), a film is targeted to teenagers and immature adults, and stars Amber Frank (Nickelodeon’s Haunted Hathaways), Dylan Sprayberry (MTV’s Teen Wolf, Man of Steel) and Mason Dye (MTV’s Finding Carter, Lifetime’s Flowers in a Attic). LaHaye permitted a film before he died, saying, “Finally there is a film on Left Behind that captures what done a books so successful.”
Randy LaHaye pronounced he got a thought for a immature adult chronicle of Left Behind while examination Twilight on television. Vanished, he said, does not follow a storyline of a Left Behind kids’ series, even yet a ubiquitous themes are still there.
“Kids currently have no thought what a Left Behind series is all about,” he said. “They haven’t review a books. They’re not informed with a brand. So we didn’t consider we indispensable to be debasing to a book. we thought: Why don’t we only do a uninformed immature complicated chronicle of Left Behind and reintroduce this judgment in an sparkling approach to a new era of supporters and fans? That’s how a thought came about.”
The Vanished story is one that will interest to non-Christians, he added.
“You don’t have to trust in werewolves and vampires to suffer Twilight and to get into that story,” he said. “I wanted to make a film that we did not have to trust in God or be a innate again Christian to get into a universe and a story and to turn a fan. That was a heart behind Vanished. But once you’re into a Twilight movies, we wish to know: What are a manners of this world? What is a attribute between a vampires and this world? It’s identical with a movie: We wish people to start digging into this – Is this unequivocally a Bible story? Are these prophecies unequivocally partial of a Bible? Asking these forms of questions competence lead them to deeper, almighty questions.”
The film is partial of a one-night-only eventuality and will be followed with a QA with a stars and filmmakers, hosted by Doug Fields and Josh Griffin.
Although teenagers and immature adults are a target, screenings have suggested that a assembly is broader.
“All of a Left Behind fans unequivocally adore a movie,” Randy LaHaye said.
