Michael Moore is reportedly moving forward with his plans for a new Trump documentary, with the alarming title “Fahrenheit 11/9.”

If the name sounds familiar, that’s probably because it is. Moore tried to get the film off the ground last year, in partnership with the Weinstein Co. But after Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual assault and harassment by over 100 women and his company filed for bankruptcy, plans for a Trump hit piece were put on the back burner.

But given Moore’s cryptic Twitter feed on Wednesday evening, it looks like he may have mobilized again.

“I know Roseanne. And I know Trump. And they are about to rue the day they knew me…” he tweeted, accompanied by a clip of both he and Trump appearing on Roseanne Barr’s talk show.

It’s not yet clear what angle Moore is planning to take in “Fahrenheit 11/9,” or what era of Trump’s public life will be covered most extensively. But given his past history with the president, you can bet this film will be anything but flattering.
