Michael Moore's latest gets a release date

Who should fear his scathing eye next? Variety tells us:
Michael Moore's new documentary, which tackles the root causes of the global economic crisis, now has a release date: Oct. 2.
Overture Films and Paramount Vantage, which made the announcement, are the film's co-financers and distributors. The film is not yet titled.
Overture and Paramount announced the project during last year's Cannes Film Festival. At the time it was described as a sequel to "Farenheit 9/11," but during production Moore decided to focus on the growing financial meltdown.
On Feb. 11, the director posted an open letter on his website seeking "a few brave people who work on Wall Street or in the financial industry to come forward and share with me what they know. ... be a hero and help me expose the biggest swindle in American history."
Said Moore: "The wealthy, at some point, decided they didn't have enough wealth," Moore said. "They wanted more -- a lot more. So they systematically set about to fleece the American people out of their hard-earned money. Now, why would they do this? That is what I seek to discover in this movie."
Overture's CEO Chris McGurk and COO Danny Rosett previously worked with Moore on the release of "Bowling for Columbine" at MGM/United Artists.
-I enjoy his films, since they entertain as well as outrage me, so I'll be looking forward to about you?
