Michael Moore Creating New Documentary About Donald Trump Called 'Fahrenheit 11/9'

The news of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 11/9 comes on the heels of the latest slur against Donald Trump, that of his recent misstep when he released confidential information to Russian Federation, in an ongoing conversation about the 45th president that seems to center around his involvement with Russian Federation. The 11/9 of the new title refers to November 9, the date that Trump was declared victor of the presidential election. It was also distributed by the Weinsteins, setting the record for the biggest-grossing documentary of all time with more than $200 million worldwide.

"Fahrenheit 11/9" will be Moore's second documentary film on Trump, after his surprise 2016 movie called "Moore in Trumpland".

During the 2016 presidential election, Moore sought to mobilize public opinion against Trump and was one of the very few public figures to say the then-candidate stood a strong chance of winning. "Whatever is revealed, it remains unshaken". Facts, reality, brains can not beat him. Even when he is "self-injured", the next morning he gets up and continues and stares. Supposedly, "that all ends with this movie". "We are ecstatic to be a part of this revolution", he added.

This isn't the first movie Moore made about Trump.

In 2004, Fahrenheit 9/11 won the Palme d'Or, the highest prize awarded at the festival and one of the most prestigious achievements an arthouse film can receive.

The 73-minute film played for one night on October 19 in 51 theaters and earned $149,090.

Anyone arguing that there's a limit to what Moore's movies can accomplish should know that the documentarian isn't stopping with films.

Are you going to see Fahrenheit 11/9 when it comes out, HollywoodLifers? . If Moore succeeds in getting out of his own way, as he did when Fahrenheit 9/11 ceded the screen to Gold Star mother Cindy Sheehan, its predecessor may well stir the passions of those who end up seeing it.

TNT has announced that Moore is returning to television with the docuseries "Live from the Apocalypse". Directors and producers Carl Deal, Meghan O'Hara, and Tia Lessin will join the project.
