''Left Behind'' which was released on Oct. 3, 2014 was appreciated by the critics and moviegoers alike, and that had triggered Cloud Ten Pictures to make the second instalment of this movie. The filming began in 2015 and the movie 'Left Behind 2' is all set to hit the theatres in 2016.

Wikia reported that Chad Michael Murray as Cameron "Buck" Williams, Cassi Thomson as Chloe Steele and Nicky Whelan as Hattie Durham will be the cast of the movie. Nicolas Cage as Rayford Steele, Lance E. Nichols as Bruce Barnes and William Ragsdale as Chris Smith might reprise their respective roles again.

Hallels reported in details about this sequel. ''The upcoming movie will pick up where the first movie left off after the day of the Rapture and will closely follow the first book in the New York Times bestselling series'' is what they mentioned. "We are living in the last days and if the Rapture were to happen today, there are a lot of people who just aren't ready," says Paul Lalonde who was the producer of the original movie ''Left Behind.'' Lalonde who is alos the  CEO of Cloud Ten Pictures talked in length about his plan to create the sequel.

''This is why we need to complete the story as soon as possible beginning with LEFT BEHIND 2. But, if we want to keep control of our story, we will once again have to fund the movie independently. We have all seen what happens to Christian, Bible-based stories when the Hollywood studios take control. They change the fundamental meaning of God's Word and make a mockery of the Christian faith. With the help of campaign supporters we won't let that happen to LEFT BEHIND 2" added Lalonde further.

News now talked about the possibility of a full-fledged franchise of this movie. This movie is based on New York Times bestselling ''Left Behind'' book series which has sold 65 million copies till date. It is translated in 32 different languages. It seems that there is a world-wide admiring population of this book series.

"Most of the primary cast members have signed on for multiple films," Lalonde mentioned. "Others will be approached once we have our funding in place. But until we have completed our funding and set definite production dates, it is impossible to guarantee that any particular actor or actress will be involved" he added further.

So what kind of collection this movie will have in the box office?
