Reminiscent of Twilight, The Walking Dead and The Hunger Games, VANISHED | Left Behind: Next Generation takes its characters—and the audience—far beyond their own fears and desires, opening them to the questions of purpose and whether their lives and choices really matter when a billion people around the globe suddenly vanish and chaos engulfs the nation.
Produced by veteran writer/producer/showrunner Dave Alan Johnson (The Client, Doc, Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye, High Incident) alongside Randy LaHaye (grandson of Left Behind co-author Dr. Tim LaHaye), the film is directed by Larry A. McLean (Pacific Rim, Christmas With Tucker) and adapted from the screenplay written by Kim Beyer-Johnson (When Calls The Heart, Doc) and Joan Considine Johnson (The Wild Thornberrys, Rugrats, Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye).
The movie stars Amber Frank (Nickelodeon’s Haunted Hathaway’s), Dylan Sprayberry (MTV’s Teen Wolf, Man Of Steel) and Mason Dye (MTV’s Finding Carter, Lifetime’s Flowers In The Attic), along with principal veteran actors Tom Everett Scott (That Thing You Do, American Werewolf In Paris), Jackson Hurst (Drop Dead Diva), Brigid Brannagh (Army Wives, Underground) and Rachel Hendrix (October Baby, Perfect Wave).
In addition to the VANISHED movie feature, audiences will get to experience a Q&A with cast/filmmakers hosted by prominent national speakers and youth leaders Doug Fields and his co-founder of Download Youth Ministry, Josh Griffin. The event, sponsored by Liberty University along with Tim LaHaye Productions and EchoLight Studios, will be presented by Fathom Events in in more than 600 U.S. movie theaters on Wednesday, Sep. 28, 2016.
