The director of Who Killed the Electric Car? (2006) and its sequel Revenge of the Electric Car (2011), Chris Paine, is making another sequel to the two critically acclaimed movies. He just finished his latest project, Bikes vs Cars, and announced that he will now start working on a third installment of his electric vehicle series.
Paine talked with Autoblog‘s Sebastien Blanco at the Tesla Model 3 Unveil event (he placed a reservation):
“We’re going to do one more electric car movie. We have kind of a working title. It’s about the world of mobility, 21st century mobility. It will have electric car in the title. It’s going to be about electric bikes and e-sharing and economist vehicles.”
The first shoot will be this summer and there’s no word on when it will be released.
If you haven’t seen Who Killed the Electric Car? and Revenge of the Electric Car yet, I strongly suggest taking the time to watch them. They are sporadically on Netflix depending on your location. If not, Who Killed the Electric Car? in DVD is 35% off on Amazon and Revenge of the Electric Car is available for streaming. Both movies are “must-see” for electric vehicle enthusiasts.
Paine’s latest movie: Bikes vs Cars
Bikes vs Cars depicts a global crisis that we all deep down know we need to talk about: climate, earth’s resources, cities where the entire surface is consumed by the car. An ever-growing, dirty, noisy traffic chaos. The bike is a great tool for change, but the powerful interests who gain from the private car invest billions each year on lobbying and advertising to protect their business. In the film we meet activists and thinkers who are fighting for better cities, who refuse to stop riding despite the increasing number killed in traffic.
