Michael Moore unveils secret Donald Trump movie

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Filmmaker Michael Moore has announced that he would be debuting a Donald Trump movie at the IFC Center in New York.

The movie, "Michael Moore in TrumpLand," is a film version of his one-man show, which he has been performing in Ohio.

It is described at the "film Ohio Republicans tried to shut down." In the movie, "Moore dives right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show, deep in the heart of TrumpLand in the weeks before the 2016 election", reported Variety.

Moore unveiled the project in a tweet that showed an editing bay with an image of the Trump children.

Moore ushered in a whole new era of partisan-charged documentaries in 2004, when his film "Fahrenheit 9/11" became a box office hit.

It grossed USD 119 million at the domestic box office to become the highest grossing documentary of all time. It also inspired responses from conservative filmmakers.

Moore had earlier said that he was "banned" from performing at the Midland Theater in Newark, Ohio, although theater operators said that they declined to go through with the show over security and logistical concerns.
