Michael Moore has let it be known that his next film will revolve around the money business. In an open letter on his website, the caustic documentarian asks for “a few brave people who work on Wall Street or in the financial industry to come forward and share with me what they know…. I believe there are a number of you who know ‘the real deal’ about theabuses that have been happening. You have information that the Americanpeople need to hear.”

Moore goes on to promise, “All correspondence with me will be kept confidential.” While working on his previous theatrical feature, Sicko, the director encountered push back from members of the health care industry when word got out that he was making a movie about their field. In a 2007 interview with EW, Moore recalled that situation: All these internal memos and training sessions in the companies for howto handle Michael Moore: ”Get him talking about any Detroit sportsteam or compliment him on how much weight he’s lost recently.””
