ManBearPig Warning: ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ Producers Talking Sequel

Hollywood Reporter: Al Gore might need to dust off his projector. The creative forces behind the Oscar-winning environmental documentary An Inconvenient Truth are hatching plans for a sequel to the film that raised global awareness of climate change. “We have had conversations,” producer Lawrence Bendertells THR. “We’ve met; we’ve discussed. If we are going to make a movie, we want it to have an impact.”

The first film certainly did. Released in 2006 by Paramount and Jeff Skoll’s Participant Media, the Davis Guggenheim-directed doc grossed nearly $50 million worldwide and helped propel Gore, its narrator, to a 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. But Bender believes that during the ensuing years, the fossil-fuel industry has changed the dialogue with a misinformation campaign. “They did a really good job of pushing back and confusing people,” he says. “Some people actually believe global warming doesn’t exist.”

Environmental activist Laurie David also believes a sequel should be on the agenda. “God, do we need one,” she says. “Everything in that movie has come to pass. At the time we did the movie, there was Hurricane Katrina; now we have extreme weather events every other week. The update has to be incredible and shocking.

“In an interview with The Guardian in November 2006, David acknowledged that owning two homes on opposite sides of the country and flying in a private jet several times per year is at odds with her message to others. In the interview she notes “Yes, I take a private plane on holiday a couple of times a year, and I feel horribly guilty about it. I probably shouldn’t do it. But the truth is, I’m not perfect. This is not about perfection. I don’t expect anybody else to be perfect either. That’s what hurts the environmental movement – holding people to a standard they cannot meet. That just pushes people away.”

In 2005, and then again in 2009, David was cited by the Chilmark Conservation Commission for paving over protected wetland areas on her estate on Martha’s Vineyard.”

Despite the desire, a sequel is far from a sure thing, and producer Scott Z. Burns says he “would only support doing a follow-up if we have a really, really amazing way of attacking the issue and reinvigorating it.”

But Inconvenient Truth and the issues it raised were on Bender’s mind as he accepted an award during a Beverly Hills fundraiser March 21 that collected $700,000 for UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. At the gala, hosted by Jeanne and Anthony Pritzker, the producer called for renewed activism on climate change and cited the film’s impact. “At the time, we hoped to provoke a global conversation about climate change,” Bender told the audience, which included Courteney Cox, Anjelica Huston, Johnny McDaid, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. “Our new inconvenient truth is that not nearly enough concrete action has been taken.”

  1. Funny, how the rich are so set in this scam. They are the biggest offenders as well as liars
    Gore drove a SUV until caught red handed, then ran out and bought a Prius, he has the most fuel eating private plane out there, as well as his two homes.
    There is no limit to trying to get Cap and Trade passed.
    Report came out this week the past four months have been the coldest on record.
    Everyone knows our water and air are several times cleaner that 30 years ago. Our energy is much cleaner and our cars produce less exhaust fumes.
    The biggest offender of the planet is China, but I don’t see them over there passing out their BS.
