Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson has revealed that he’s a silent executive producer of the recently released Nicolas Cage film Left Behind. It’s an apocalyptic thriller about the Rapture, where God saves all the Christians. Why did Robertson get involved? He says: “Like most Christians, my family and I can truly say that we’re excited about the soon return of Jesus. And I’m sure if you’ve been watching the news lately, you know that that return could be any day now.”
The film was released on October 3 and has been universally panned by critics. Even the evangelical magazine Christianity Today criticized the film, saying: “Left Behind is not a Christian movie… In fact, most Christians within the world of the movie—whether the street-preacher lady at the airport or Rayford Steele’s wife—are portrayed as insistent, crazy, delusional, or at the very least just really annoying.” Two sequels are planned. Better hurry!
