Michael Moore's Documentary Gets a Name... and Date

After branching out to cover Health Care, Gun Control and the Bush Administration's response to the September 11th Attacks, Michael Moore is returning to the subject that made him the darling of the liberal film viewer: capitalism. His latest film is officially titled Capitalism: A Love Story and hopes to strike a chord with recession weary audiences everywhere.

Much like his first film Roger and Me (which centered on GM), Moore will focus his sarcasm towards large corporate businesses that (as his documentary will most likely argue) led to the current economic situation. Moore tells the Associated Press, "It will be the perfect date movie... It's got it all — lust, passion, romance and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day. It's a forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, let's just say it: It's capitalism."

Capitalism: A Love Story is produced and distributed by Overture Films and is currently set to be released on October 2.
