Michael Moore Ditches Documentaries?
Director of acclaimed documentaries and top America fan Michael Moore has revealed in The Detroit News he would like to put documentary-making aside for a while, to try his hand at making fictional movies.
He’s no stranger to fiction, having made 1995’s Canadian Bacon, a comedy taking a political slant that saw a fake war between Canada and the US, and was John Candy’s last acting role.
He said: “I’ve been thinking that maybe this will be my last documentary… Or maybe for a while,” he says, admitting that he’s already been writing a couple of possible ideas.
“I have been working on two screenplays over the last couple of years. One’s a comedy, one’s a mystery, and I really want to do this.”
His latest – and possibly last – documentary offering titled Capitalism: A Love Story will open in cinemas later this year.
