snipshot_a9dkldrooo4.jpgSteven Spielberg loved ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, but apparently thought the entire ending was a bit of a downer. Spielberg, known for upbeat films such as ‘Schindler’s List, ‘War of the Worlds’, and ‘Saving Private Ryan’, would instead like to take Gore’s message and give a little more hope to it by showing what people are doing to help; specifically what one green architect is doing to help, William McDonough.

According to an article in Business 2.0, McDonough was called by Spielberg last spring and asked to fly to LA for a meeting. Once there (why they just couldn’t do a video-conference is beyond me), Spielberg revealed his master plan to create a documentary about the green-guru. McDonough explained, “He’d just seen Al Gore’s movie and felt it would be great to make a film about what people are doing about [global warming]. The ending of Gore’s film is tragic, because after showing the scale of the catastrophe, he says, ‘There’s some hope here,’ but the hope is what? Buy hybrid? Change your lightbulbs? It’s not enough!”

I hope this movie/documentary does a little more than revolve around McDonough. It would be incredible if Spielberg picked out several green innovators and highlighted their efforts as well. Green architecture is simply a piece of the puzzle. If he truly wanted to create a film of hope, there should be several aspects of world-changing practices included. Not to mention, a really kick-ass Powerpoint/Keynote presentation. Gore would be proud.
