It was announced yesterday that the new title for Michael Moore’s latest film will be, “Capitalism: A Love Story.” The film will be released by Overture Films on October 2, 2009 in the United States. Paramount Vantage will handle international distribution. This latest film will revolve around “the disastrous impact that corporate dominance and out-of-control profit motives have on the lives of Americans and citizens of the world,” according to Moore.
When asked why Michael Moore chose the title, and referred to it as a love story, he said that, “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.”
