Last summer, we saw the reboot of a popular Christian book franchise, Left Behind. Unfortunately, it was met with less-than-spectacular reviews, and any hope anyone held of a sequel being released quickly vanished. However, it would appear that they are still moving forward with a sequel. Now, The Left Behind Movie Project is seeking to raise $500,000 on Indiegogo to fund their next film, Left Behind: The End Begins. They wrote on their page:
"We’ve already been working hard planning for Left Behind 2 and that will continue as our top priority for this year. But it won’t happen without your help. Please join the Left Behind Film Project by making a contribution and helping us reach our goal. Any and all contributions get us closer to our fundraising goal, but more importantly it shows that there is support for this film – and other Christian films. You’ll not only be ensuring that the franchise continues, but with all net proceeds from this campaign going straight into the production budget, you’ll be directly impacting the theatrical release of the film. Choose from our exciting perks and help us get started today!"
It will be interesting to watch and see how this campaign does. A lot of people were not happy with the reboot and may not be willing to help fund this film. However, this is a flexible-funding campaign, meaning they will receive all funds, no matter how little they raise. You can visit their Indiegogo page for more information. Be sure to check back in three weeks and see how this campaign did!
