Moore plans Fahrenheit 9/11 sequel



Story by: Jack Foley

MICHAEL Moore has continued to be a thorn in the side of President George Bush by announcing that he is planning a sequel to his hit documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11.

The follow-up, to be called Fahrenheit 9/11 and a half, should be ready in time for the next election.

In an interview with trade magazine, Variety, Moore confirmed that a sequel was very much in the works, stating: "We want to get the cameras rolling now and have it ready in two [to] three years."

Moore had hoped that his first film, which exposed alleged business links between the Bush family and the Bin Ladens, as well as the first evidence of US troops abusing Iraqi prisoners, would have opened his nation's eyes to some harsh truths about their political leader.

He fought a hard campaign to ensure the film was released in the States ahead of the recent presidential elections, hoping it would influence the outcome.

But despite one of the closest votes in years, Bush was re-elected, to the dismay of Moore.

Yet he has come back fighting and even found a positive side to the electoral outcome.

"There is a silver lining - George Bush is prohibited by law from running again," he explained.

"Fifty one percent of the American people lacked information [in this election]," Moore continued.

"We want to educate and enlighten them. They weren't told the truth."
