Moore to make Fahrenheit sequel
Michael Moore
Fahrenheit 9/11 made $120m (65m) at US box offices
Michael Moore is planning a sequel to his controversial political documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 to coincide with the next US presidential campaign.

"We want to get the cameras rolling now and have it ready in two [to] three years," he told industry paper Variety.

Moore, whose film won the top prize at the Cannes film festival, failed in his explicit aim of persuading voters to remove President Bush from office.

"There is a silver lining - George Bush is prohibited... from running again."

Fahrenheit 9/11 portrayed the president as an incompetent and misguided leader who took the US to war in Iraq on a lie, and alleged links between the Bin Laden and Bush families.

"Fifty-one percent of the American people lacked information [in this election]," Moore said. "We want to educate and enlighten them. They weren't told the truth."
