Hot off the heals of award season, Leonardo DiCaprio has announced his plans, to bring his message on climate change to a different audience.
His production company, Appian Way, who is behind films like The Wolf of Wall Street, Cowspiracy and The Aviator, have recently announced plans to adapt Kayla Olson’s young-adult novel, on to the big screen.
The Sandcastle Empire was brought to the attention of Leo, after the future-dystopian themes that centred around climate change, overpopulation and global warming, aligned with the environmental message he and his foundation are attempting to bring to light.
The book is set in 2049 when climate change has run its course on earth, with coastal flooding and overpopulation bringing about the demise of humanity. A radical faction then takes hold of the remaining citizens after usurping the government.
The staunch activist is also said to be working on an filmic expose of the recent Volkswagen emissions scandal.
