A new movie based on the best-selling novel Left Behind: A Novel of Earth’s Last Days, which follows a 747 captain on a mission during the rapture, is filming overnight at the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport tonight, Aug. 21, and most likely tomorrow night, Aug. 22, as well.
The airport shoot is expected to include pyrotechnics, smoke, and fire.
Left Behind has been creating a lot of buzz, not because of the book’s popularity, but also because of its A-List cast. The movie stars Nicholas Cage, Chad Michael Murray, Jordin Sparks, Nicky Whelan, and Switched At Birth’s Cassi Thomson (who recently replaced Ashley Tisdale), among others.
Since filming began on Aug. 8, the movie has also shot scenes in downtown Baton Rouge, on a local soundstage, and at the Baton Rouge River Center. We’ve also heard about several star sightings around town since the movie went into production. Just a few days ago one of our readers worked out next to Chad Michael Murray in Hotel Indigo’s gym!
