Director Chris Paine (pictured) is still filming the follow-up to his hit documentary “Who Killed The Electric Car” — and one has to think that the release date for “Revenge” keeps getting pushed back (originally slated for 2009 — and then fall 2010 — and now…) because so much cool stuff is currently happening in the industry.
We’ve got Chevy releasing their Volt, Nissan debuting the Leaf — and a host of other car companies from Toyota to Ford to Aston Martin all warming up to battery-driven tech. In other words, “Revenge” is going to be the type of documentary sequel that most filmmakers only dream about: one with an actual happy ending.
Check out Chris’ recent blog post on a visit him and the crew paid to GM’s Volt assembly plant in Detroit. “How the world has changed in five years!,” he writes.
