Moore Backtracks on ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ DVD Release
LOS ANGELES ( — When it looked like his film wasn’t going to get a distributor until he won the Palme d’Or at Cannes this year, Michael Moore said he would get “Fahrenheit 9/11” out on DVD and video by November in order to get his message out and influence the presidential election.
Even after signing a deal with Lions Gate and IFC Films to distribute the movie before Independence Day, Moore says he wanted to get “Fahrenheit 9/11” out to audiences at home who won’t go see a documentary in the theater.
But now, Moore tells, “There are no plans yet for a DVD before the election, it’s pretty much out of my hands.”
It’s tough to imagine anything is out of Moore’s hands after overwhelming box office numbers this past weekend, becoming the most successful money-making documentary in history, landing $21.8 million in one weekend. However, Moore’s movie is mixed up in a complex web of a newly-formed company — Fellowship Adventure Group — by Miramax co-chairmen Bob and Harvey Weinstein who joined forces with Lions Gate Films and IFC Films.
Through a deal with Lions Gate, Showtime has the pay-TV rights and the DVD/video plans are still in the works, although there is some speculation that it could end up at Universal Home Video.
Lions Gate publicist Sarah Greenberg says, “We can’t comment yet on the DVD.”
Meanwhile, Moore is riding high on the theatrical release.
“If it’s playing this well, I’d rather people see it on the movie screen with hundreds of their fellow Americans applauding a blank screen,” he says.
