the 11th hour

The pieces of the puzzle are starting to fall into place for Leonardo DiCaprio’s new eco-documentary, The 11th Hour.

Premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this month, the new flick will explore the steps that will be needed for the human race to effectively stave off climate change and create a more sustainable world. From the release,

“A variety of leading scientists, thinkers and leaders are interviewed in the film, including Stephen Hawking, former CIA topper James Woolsey and former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev.

Warner Bros. Intl. prexy of marketing Sue Kroll and prexy of distribution Veronika Kwan-Rubinek said the docu is a ‘compelling exploration of not only the critical importance of climate change but also the myriad global challenges that we face today.’

In addition to DiCaprio, producers of “11th Hour” are Conners Petersen, Chuck Castleberry and Brian Gerber.”

Currently, Warner Bros. is looking at fall release for the film. We should start to see the first impressions of the doc after Cannes. Till then, stay tuned as we attempt to dig up more on the first major film on climate change since An Inconvenient Truth. Hit the official website for more information!
