An Inconvenient Truth Sequel?

An Inconvenient TruthAn Inconvenient Truth is one of those documentaries that transcends the genre and medium of film. It created action around the world and will become known as a turning point in the Global Warming mess. And, oh yeah, it was successful. So of course Paramount wants to make a sequel.

“I’m meeting with Paramount next week to talk about a sequel to Inconvenient Truth. Too early to talk about details…” Inconvenient Truth director Davis Guggenheim told IESB.

But is a sequel really a good idea? How much more is there to say? Would Al Gore be involved? The first film was essentially a streamlined version of Gore’s slideshow presentation. I assume like most other things, the footage that hit the cutting room floor ended up there for a reason. And Gore says he won’t be running for President in 2008 to continue his focus on the fight against Global Warming. He say’s that’s more important, and I agree.

But IESB does bring up a good point. The first film was put together in the matter of months. What if Gore did decide to run? A sequel could hit theaters in time for the November election. Now that would be unprecedented.
