The movie follows the Oscar-winning actor and environmentalist around the world, as the ‘Titanic’, ‘Wolf Of Wall Street’ and ‘The Revenant’ star speaks with political figures, scientists, and people directly affected by the phenomenon of global warming to explore the true impact that industrialisation and modern living has had on the environment.
The official synopsis reads: “Before the Flood, directed by Fisher Stevens, captures a three-year personal journey alongside Academy Award-winning actor and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio as he interviews individuals from every facet of society in both developing and developed nations who provide unique, impassioned and pragmatic views on what must be done today and in the future to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet.”
Earlier this month, the tracklist for the soundtrack to ‘Before The Flood’ was unveiled – scored by Trent Reznor and Mogwai. DiCaprio also came under fire from Donald Trump his support of Hilary Clinton – claiming he’s ‘not hot any more’.
Meanwhile, to continue his environmental activism through cinema, it was recently revealed that DiCaprio was planning to reboot the classic ’90’s cartoon ‘Captain Planet’ into a movie.
Paramount have approached Jono Matt and Scream Queens star Glen Powell to write the script, after the rights to the show lapsed while Sony were working on a similar project.
