Above: A scene from Michael Moore's new untitled documentary
These days it seems like everyone wants to take a bite out of the vampire universe and suck that sucker till its bone dry. While filmmaker Michael Moore isn't exactly moving on to the world of fiction, he tells USA Today -- who premiered the first image from his upcoming untitled film (see above) -- that his new movie takes the whole vampire mythology in a new (and topical) direction. Moore says, "The movie is not going to be an economics lesson; it's going to be more like a vampire movie. Instead of the main characters feasting on the blood of their victims, they feast on the money. And they never seem to get enough of it."
Moore, of course, is talking about those greedy Wall Street men and women whose bad choices and investments helped shove this country into a recession that so far has cost thousands of jobs and forced some of the most hard-working Americans to give up their homes because they can no longer afford the mortgages. While Moore admits that his films will always be a little bit funny regardless of the topic, this time he claims moviegoers might leave the theater asking ushers for "pitchforks and torches." Hmmm ... does the man really eat that much? (Insert smiley face with a wink)
The Untitled Michael Moore Film (which I think he should call Why Are People So F**king Greedy?) will hit theaters on October 2nd.
