Multi award-winning Christian music pioneer Carman, will star in the end times movie, "Final: The Rapture" this September.

"Carman is an incredible actor and person," said the film's director Tim Chey in a statement. "He did the role amazingly well. We're all praying mightily for him. He's a wonderful friend and has a great love for Christ."

The movie will focus on the days and events following the Rapture and follow four different stories taking place over the world.

"I wanted to make a very clinical, realistic film on the coming Rapture," said Chey. "There's no cartoon anti-Christ, cartoon anything. It's a very sobering look at what will happen in the next great event of mankind: Christ returning for his church."

The film was made to scare non-believers into asking questions and believers to evangelize.

"It's most definitely not for children under 13," the director says. "There's no profanity, sex, or anything like that. But I made this film to scare the living daylights out of adult non-believers."

Carman plays a passenger named Frankie who has the last ticket out of America.

Carman was diagnosed with terminal cancer and is being told he has three to five years to live, but he is not letting it keep him down as he is still looking to advance God's kingdom. Carman has multiple myeloma cancer, a form of cancer of the a blood that affects bone marrow.

Carman is taking the prayers and support from his fans and using it as fuel to fight his cancer by announcing a 60-city, 28-state tour to support his new album.

Tickets went on sale July 1, and he is offering limited 500 tickets for each stop on the tour on Kickstarter. According to a press release, backers who donate $100 will receive two VIP concert tickets plus the single and video a month before the street date of the album, a t-shirt, and an autographed "Game Changers" CD.

The singer has 16 platinum and gold albums and 10 million albums sold, with attendance records for a solo Christian artist.
