Cli-fi in Hollywood. Any new cli-fi movies in production or pre production or ready for release soon?
The new Nicolas Cage movie is shooting in Canada now, and set in 2030 near future. Dystopian cli-fi. Cage will star in the action thriller “The Humanity Bureau,” with shooting in British Columbia.
Rob King is set to direct from a script written by Dave Schultz. Sarah Lind, Jakob Davies and Hugh Dillon have also joined the cast.
The story is set in 2030 with global warming wreaking havoc in parts of the American Midwest. In its attempt to take hold of the economic recession, a government agency called The Humanity Bureau exiles members of society deemed unproductive and banishes them to a colony known as New Eden.
Cage will play an ambitious and impartial caseworker who investigates a case appealed by a single mother (Lind) and her son (Davies). RELEASE DATE: SUMMER 2017
UPDATE: Cage gets groceries in Osoyoos: Nicolas Cage created a stir in the Okanagan in early December after being spotted buying fresh produce at the Osoyoos Buy-Low Foods in Canada. A photo of the movie star posing with Buy-Low staffer Denise Gray made the rounds on Facebook. Cage is in Okanagan, not for the over-priced avocado$$$, but rather to film the cli-fi movie ''The Humanity Bureau''.

In academia, any new cli-fi classes set for this semester or next? Any recent academic articles or quotes from them worth highlighting?
Yes, a lot is happening within academia and among academics worldwide now with cli-fi. Symposiums, online forums, academic papers, and more.
A professor tells this blog: "I’m awaiting word now on a possible grant for a project on cli-fi where I, in collaboration with two colleagues from another college, will have reading groups read cli-fi novels in their location (so, for example, Paolo Bacigalupi's ''The Water Knife'' in Ariona, Kim Stanley Robinson's "NEW YORK 2140" in NYC, etc.), then journal about their reading, and discuss it with us. We’ll try to take some measure of the effects of cli-fi novels on their imaginations of the future and their climate politics."
See ''The Holocene Hangover'' by University of Chicago professor Fredrik Albritton Jonsson .
Thomas Davis in the English department at OSU in Ohio notes that he will be teaching a cli-fi seminar in the spring of 2018, adding: "A bit far off, but I’m collecting materials now."

Who's in charge of cli fi these days and who owns the term, if anyone?
Nobody is in charge, it's an open meme, and nobody owns cli-fi or ever has. It belongs to the world, and has taken on a life of its own after its initial quiet and almost invisible launch. Most people still have never heard of the term yet -- 90 percent of the general public have never heard the term or seen the term in print. It's still early days. But things are cooking, yes. Slowly. Simmering.
Overseas Tweets? Yes!

''Cli-fi is still an embryonic genre that reminds in many cases the early, naive, science fiction of the 1930s. And yet, it is growing and turning into literature.''
