We know Al Gore’s “ten year” climate change doom and gloom prediction has been a bust, so Hollywood’s being forced to move the “we’re gonna die” target date back a few decades:

Paramount is jumping into the YA post-apocalypse fray, picking up The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson.

Leonardo DiCaprio and his partner at Appian Way, Jennifer Davisson, are attached to produce the adaptation.

While some could argue that the post-apocalyptic scene may be played out to a certain extent, the book is said to lean heavily into environmental themes and it’s those themes that attracted DiCaprio to the manuscript.

The book is set in 2049 when the Earth is at a breaking point due to climate change, coastal flooding and overpopulation. A radical faction known as the Wolfpack overthrows the government and takes control.

Sounds like it could be a combo of “Waterworld,” “The Day After Tomorrow” and “An Inconvenient Truth.”

A more believable plot would revolve around an apocalyptic global warming future caused by eco-hypocrites flying around in private jets warning everybody about the threat caused by humans burning fossil fuels:

My script for the futuristic tragicomedy “Hypocrite-World” will never get the green light from Hollywood brass.
