Watch out, America. Post-modern hero of the silver screen Nicholas Cage is in talks to star in a reboot of the  Left Behind  series:

Nicolas Cage is in negotiations to topline “Left Behind,” a mainstream reboot of the Christian-themed movie trilogy that will mark the first film from Stoney Lake Entertainment, a new production company led by Paul Lalonde of faith-oriented banner Cloud Ten Pictures.

The “Left Behind” franchise is based on the series of books written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins that have sold more than 65 million copies worldwide.

Lalonde will produce the action thriller with Michael Walker, and co-write the script with John Patus, who wrote 2005’s “Left Behind: World at War.” Veteran stunt coordinator and second unit director Vic Armstrong (“Army of One”) is in talks to direct.
