HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- Paramount Pictures says it will release in theaters next year the follow-up to An Inconvenient Truth, former Vice President Al Gore's Oscar-winning documentary about the global climate crisis.
Directed by Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, the sequel to the 2006 documentary follows Gore as he continues his fight to build a more sustainable future for the planet. The film will premiere on the opening night of the Sundance Film Festival.
"Now more than ever we must rededicate ourselves to solving the climate crisis," Gore said in a statement Friday. "But we have reason to be hopeful; the solutions to the crisis are at hand. I'm deeply honored and grateful that Paramount Pictures and Participant Media have once again taken on the task of bringing the critical story of the climate crisis to the world."
"We are honored to be working again with Al, Jeff Skoll and everyone at Participant on a film whose message is as urgent as ever," added Paramount Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Brad Grey. "Al's tireless efforts to bring about change continues to inspire all of us as we fight for the health of our world for future generations."
