While I’m not a huge fan of Hollywood’s shift towards 3D films, whatever Louie Psihoyos has up his sleeve might just convince me otherwise.

The Cove director recently shed some light on his next project — and instead of focusing on one species in peril, this one will run the gamut.

“We’re shooting a 3-D film whose working title is The Singing Planet,” Psihoyos told Momentum. “It’s a film about the mass extinction of wildlife caused by humanity – I think it’s the biggest story out there right now.”

Staying true to current events, Psihoyos confirmed that the film will shoot in the Gulf — as well as “Polynesia, all over the Pacific including Cocos and Galapagos, Europe and many places now being determined….”

The interview also covers in-depth the technology and cameras Psihoyos and his crew used while shooting The Cove; ending with a very funny story of the director’s chance meeting with Steven Spielberg.

About five years ago I was in the Caribbean on vacation and my son became friends with Steven Spielberg’s son. The director came over to the boat I was staying on and asked me what I did for living. I told him I was a still photographer thinking about getting into film – and asked him if he had any advice. From experience with directing Jaws, he told me, “Never make a movie involving boats or animals.”

Dolphins everywhere can be thankful that Psihoyos never took those words to heart.
