Moore Offers ‘Sicko’ Update
Shooting is three-fourths complete on health care doc
In the immediate aftermath of his “Fahrenheit 9/11” success, Michael Moore announced that his next film was going to be a health care crisis documentary titled “Sicko,” but when will the project be in theaters?
On Friday, Moore posted an open letter on his website and sent a message to fans on his e-mail list offering an update.
Apparently, Moore and his team have now shot around 75 percent of the footage for “Sicko,” with the final fourth and then editing still to come. The plan is still to have Weinstein Co. releasing the documentary sometime in 2007.
‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ Showcard
Moore has gotten some help from his friends on “Sicko,” which he describes as “a comedy about 45 million people with no health care in the richest country on earth.”
“Back in February, I asked if people would send me letters describing their experiences with our health care system. I received over 19,000 of them,” Moore writes. “It was truly overwhelming as we literally took a month and read them all. To read about the misery people are put through on a daily basis by our profit-based system was both moving and revolting. That’s all I will say right now.”
The filmmaker hinted that the shape and themes of “Sicko” were changing as shooting progressed, but he opted not to elaborate.
“Fahrenheit 9/11” made just under $120 million at the US box office, making it the most successful documentary of all-time.
