Producer Paul Lalonde may not believe it, but the only reason anyone paid attention to his Left Behind remake was Nicolas Cage – the true believers already had a version made by more faithful folks. And Nicolas Cage does stuff for the money, as his entire recent career shows. So you think raising $500,000 on Indiegogo is gonna get the job done?
I suggest you start fitting Gary Busey with a black wig instead. Or maybe Nic Cage really will take anything. I suspect we’ll find out soon.
Oh, here’s the best part of the Indiegogo – the $75 perk:
With direct access to the people who are making the movie, you’ll advise us on casting decisions, plot development, artwork decisions and more!
Translation: because we have no idea what the fuck we’re doing, and literally anything you say to us will be smarter than what we’ll come up with.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
