Those of you waiting to see "Revenge of the Electric Car," mark your calendars. The public premiere of the long-in-the-works sequel of sorts to the classic Who Killed The Electric Car? will take place at the Tribeca Film Festival on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2011 in New York City.

Director Chris Paine's movie, which tells the (hopefully amazing) story of "3 carmakers and 1 converter as they race to bring their electric cars to market" will be the Spotlight feature documentary at the TFF's opening weekend and will also be shown a few other times throughout the festival. After this, the movie will hit the road based on the squeaky wheel strategy. A statement released by the moviemakers says:

The filmmakers have been receiving a large amount of emails from fans asking when the film will be playing near them, and so far the only answer we can give is "as soon as we can!" After the film's premiere at Tribeca, we'll be mapping out our release strategy to bring the film to the cities with the most requests for it first.
