Nobel Peace Prize-winner Al Gore
announced last week that he would not let the lazy people of Earth stop him from making a sequel to his Oscar-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth
“I will make a sequel to the 2006 documentary ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ and despite earths ‘rising fever’, I am hopeful for a happy ending,” said Gore. “I have to say the situation has not improved since I made the movie in 2006. Sure, awareness has grown and more people are concerned since scientists said we had just ten years to take action to halt rising sea levels. But the situation has got worse. The entire North Polar ice cap is melting and could be gone in some areas in as little as five years.”
Al Gore’s book sequel to An Inconvenient Truth, The Path to Survival
, was supposed to hit stores on Earth Day but will be released in Spring 2009.
In the new book Gore gives the exact specs he used to build a rocket ship to send his only son to a distant planet after having his prophecy of doom ignored.
IN A RELATED STORY...
founder, chairman and CEO of Legendary Pictures (which produced 'Batman Begins', 'Superman Returns'
and '300'), talked to students at Hamilton College about his career in film making and upcoming projects like 'Watchmen', 'Akira' and the 'Superman' sequel. Tull dropped that the new Superman movie would refocus on the man of steel as "an angry god"
I do hope that pans out because no matter what genre you write Superman for or whatever version of Superman, it's an inevitable conclusion for him to at some point become and "angry god". Really, how long could you watch the people of Earth destroy each other and the planet without stepping in and forcing everybody do what you thought is the right thing do? Especially if you had those super powers?
If you ever want to read a fine example of that scenario I would point you to the graphic novel, "Red SOn"
