Michael Moore and Harvey Weinstein have announced plans to team up to create a documentary about President Trump, and they are calling it “Fahrenheit 11/9.”
The title is a nod to their previous film, “Fahrenheit 9/11,” as well as being the date, November 9, that Donald Trump became the president-elect.
The Liberal filmmakers, who will partner for the first time since “Fahrenheit 9/11,” are seeking to “break all records” with the new film.
“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,” said Weinstein.
“Fahrenheit 9/11” earned $119 million in its U.S. run, making it the top-grossing documentary ever produced. The film attempted to use “investigative journalism” to look into the Bush administration’s motives for war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Calling the new film a way to get Moore’s appetite for “the truth” out there, Weinstein says they hope to have similar success at the box office with “Fahrenheit 11/9.”
For his part, Moore wants to end the idea that Trump seems unstoppable. “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 ends now,” Moore threatened.
Moore hopes to change the minds of Trump supporters. However, most of his target audience would not consider themselves his fans. It isn’t clear why the two filmmakers believe this film will change Trump supporter’s minds or their mistrust of Moore’s liberal views, but they are intent on making the film a monetary success, at the least.
