Michael Moore is currently planning a sequel to his controversial film “Fahrenheit 9/11,” which criticizes President George W. Bush over September 11, the war on terrorism and more. As reported to Daily Variety magazine, Moore said he met with Harvey Weinstein of Miramax, who produced Fahrenheit 9/11, and are hoping to complete the film in 2-3 years.
“Fahrenheit 9/11, ” which juxtaposes interviews with soldiers fighting in Iraq with speeches George W. Bush gave, history, and a personal story from a Mother whose son died in Iraq, was controversial in this critical election year where George Bush just recently narrowly won re-election.
The sequel is currently titled “Fahrenheit 9/11 1/2” and plans to cover the same issues as the first film – Iraq and terrorism.
In Variety Moore said that, “the official mourning period is over today and there is a silver lining: George W. Bush is prohibited by law from running again."
