Michael Moore Claims His New Film Will End Donald Trump’s Presidency

May 17, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Michael Moore is set to release a new film that he claims will end Donald Trump’s presidency. Bob and Harvey Weinstein have acquired the rights to his latest documentary Fahrenheit 11/9 through their Fellowship Adventure Group. The film will look at what contributed to Trump’s 2016 victory, even after losing the popular vote by close to 3 million to Hillary Clinton. It will also look at his run as President so far. The title is a reference to the day he was declared President (at 2:29 AM ET) as well as his movie Fahrenheit 9/11, which looked at the Bush Administration’s response to the September 11 attacks.

A press release stated: “The filming has been done under a strict cloak of secrecy and is expected to be key in dissolving Trump’s ‘teflon’ shield and, in turn, his presidency.

Moore added: “No matter what you throw at him, it hasn’t worked. No matter what is revealed, he remains standing. Facts, reality, brains cannot defeat him. Even when he commits a self-inflicted wound, he gets up the next morning and keeps going and tweeting. That all ends with this movie.

The film will have “the mix of outrage and mischievous humor that has made Moore the most successful documentary filmmaker in the world.” Moore will work with the team who helped on Fahrenheit ‪9/11, including Meghan O’Hara, Tia Lessin and Carl Deal. A release date has not been revealed.

It follows the release of another surprise film from October called Michael Moore in Trumpland, which was described as his dive “right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show, deep in the heart of TrumpLand in the weeks before the 2016 election”. It featured Moore talking with Republicans in Ohio who supported Trump. Moore will produce yet another anti-Trump project later this year, his stage show The Terms of My Surrender. It debuts in July on Broadway and run for 12 weeks.

The Weinsteins said in a statement: “There is no greater part of what we can do right now than to have the power to bring Michael Moore to a mass audience. When we had the opportunity to work with him on Fahrenheit 9/11, we were so persistent that we ultimately had to part ways from Disney and we lost our beloved Miramax, named after our parents, because we believed so strongly in the message. The movie broke all records then, and we plan to do so again. This movie will have one of the most innovative distribution plans ever. Now more than ever, Michael’s appetite for the truth is crucial. We are ecstatic to be a part of this revolution.
