Al Gore doubles down on his climate-change warnings with a new film coming to the Sundance Film Festival in January.

“A follow-up to ‘An Inconvenient Truth,’ the Oscar-winning documentary about climate change, will be among the opening night films,” said The Guardian. said: “It’s unclear what exactly the movie will cover and how long Gore will be on screen or if he will be doing another presentation or heading out into the world to see how climate change is being handled by people.”

In a statement released Friday, the former vice president said: “Now more than ever we must rededicate ourselves to solving the climate crisis. But we have reason to be hopeful; the solutions to the crisis are at hand.”

“Rumors of a follow-up film have circulated since 2014,” said The Guardian, “but on Friday it was confirmed that the film will be part of the festival’s The New Climate section, which features films that all have the climate or the environment at their core.

“It’s expected the film will be released in 2017 by Paramount. The company’s CEO Brad Grey said: ‘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.’”
