Acclaimed doco maker Michael Moore has denied reports that his next project is a direct sequel to “Fahrenheit 9/11”, but rather something more far-reaching.
“It would be easier and safer to make a sequel, if that’s all it was, but this isn’t about Bush… We all know this. Regardless of who the president is come November, we have a big mess, a big, big mess to be cleaned up, and I don’t know whether it can be cleaned up. The toxicity of the spill may be so great that there’s nothing we can do about it. If that’s the case, where are we now as America and as Americans?” said Moore to the Associated Press.
So what will he cover? “examine America as an empire, study its standing since the Sept. 11 attacks and present revelations to surprise audiences as much as the first film did. What I’m going to say in this film is what probably 70 percent of them (audiences) don’t want to hear.”
The film is scheduled for release next year.
