The Cove Director’s New Movie

The Cove filmmakers make new movie on mass extinction.

Director of The Cove, Louie Psihoyos, and nonprofit Oceanic Preservation Society are teaming up to produce another documentary. The focus of the new film will be mass extinction across the globe. The film, which will be shot in 3D, has the tentative name The Singing Planet. The film hopes to inspire audiences to take an active role in environmental conservation, similar to the mobilizing effect The Cove had on audiences to speak out against dolphin slaughter. In an interview with Momentum, Psihoyos said he thought mass extinction was, “the biggest story out there right now.”
