Michael Moore Takes on the Economy

Michael Moore's new documentary will tackle the financial crisis.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Michael Moore's new documentary will focus on the global financial crisis and the U.S. economy. Moore is "feverishly shooting," and it is expected to come out as early as this spring. "The untitled movie will contain an end-of-the-empire tone, say those familiar with the project." Craig Minassian, an entertainment consultant, said, "If Moore offers a prescription for how to improve things, he may indeed find an audience that at this moment is eager for change," but cautioned "it's going to be hard for him. What this election shows is what's right with America, and sometimes what Michael Moore does is highlight what's wrong with America."
