There’s been some fighting talk from the filmmaker…
Filmmaker Michael Moore appears to be teasing an upcoming project about President Donald Trump and Roseanne Barr.
Moore took to Twitter earlier this evening (May 30) to post an old clip of himself on TV with Trump. During the clip, the guests are seen discussing Moore’s 1989 documentary Roger & Me. The film looked at the regional economic impact of a number of auto plants closing in Moore’s Michigan hometown, Flint at the hands of Roger Smith.
While praising the doc, Trump says in the clip: “If I was Roger I wouldn’t have liked it, but I enjoyed it.” He then goes on to add: “I hope [Moore] never does one [a documentary] on me.”
Captioning the clip, Moore says: “I know Roseanne. And I know Trump. And they are about to rue the day they knew me…” The video dramatically cuts to black and displays Moore’s official website address. When on the site, text on the homepage reads: “I’ve been working on a secret project for the last few months. Sign up for updates and to find out how you can help.”
In May last year, it was announced that Moore was working on a documentary about President Donald Trump, called Fahrenheit 11/9. It was reported that the filmmaker hoped to do some real and lasting damage to the President’s office with the project.
With Moore previously working with The Weinstein Company on the film, he began a legal battle with co-founder Harvey Weinstein after the movie mogul was exposed as a sexual abuser.
Speaking previously about the project and Trump, Moore said: “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 new potential teaser suggests that Roseanne Barr could be involved in the upcoming project. Earlier this week, the reboot of Roseanne was axed after its star posted a racist tweet.
Moore has already made a movie about the President, with Michael Moore in TrumpLand being released back in 2016.
