Smuggler's Ransom

Here's some cool news!  Christian Newswire reports that Smuggler's Ransom has been picked up by Cloud Ten pictures for distribution!  

Never heard of it?  Neither had I, but I checked out the official site and it sounds pretty cool.  The basic plot is, during the cold war, a girl is arrested for smuggling Bibles behind the iron curtain.  A professional assassin is hired to retrieve her, and, of course, there's more going on then you might think at first.  

Now, Cloud Ten sure sounds familiar.  Where have I heard that before?  Oh, yeah.  Left Behind.  And Left Behind 2.  And Left Behind 3.  AND, Apocalypse, Revelation, Tribulation, Judgement.  Not one, but two independent movie series about the end times.  Why they haven't done a cross-over yet is beyond me.  Besides those movies they have a couple of oddballs, a drama starring Burt Reynolds and a movie called Deceived that sounds like it had the idea for The Signal a few years earlier.  

I've seen a couple films from Cloud Ten, and they are pretty bad.  Hopefully this means that they are starting to make, or at least distribute, more interesting films.  I'm looking forward to Smuggler's Ransom.
