When asked during a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” in 2013 whether there were plans for a follow-up film, An Inconvenient Truth director Davis Guggenheim said, “I think about it a lot – I think we need one right now.” In 2014, The Hollywood Reporter reported that the producers of the first film were in talks over a possible sequel. “We have had conversations,” co-producer Lawrence Bender said. “We've met; we've discussed. If we are going to make a movie, we want it to have an impact.” Co-producer Laurie David also believed a sequel was needed. “God, do we need one,” David said. “Everything in that movie has come to pass. At the time we did the movie, there was Hurricane Katrina; now we have extreme weather events every other week. The update has to be incredible and shocking.” In December 2016, Al Gore announced that a follow-up to An Inconvenient Truth, An Inconvenient Sequel, would open at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. The film was screened in the Climate section, a new division, for films featuring climate and the environment. The film was theatrically released by Paramount Pictures on July 28, 2017. In June 2017, the filmmakers told TheWrap that following President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, they would re-edit the film to expand Trump's role as antagonist, before its release.
