Michael Moore’s next documentary for Paramount Vantage and Overture is taking on a different issue than first stated – it will now cover the global financial crisis says The Hollywood Reporter.
The still untitled feature is said to follow an “end-of-the-empire tone” rather than the foreign policy-focused follow-up to “Fahrenheit 9/11” that was originally planned. Even Moore calls if more of a “bookend to ‘Roger & Me'” in reference to his breakthrough debut effort nearly two decades ago.
However, with the crisis changing from day to day and a renewed sense of hope thanks to Obama’s election, critics are wondering if Moore’s style will still hit with audiences by the time it gets released.
Moore is rushing forward with filming at present and the movie is expected to come out as early as the Spring.
