We really shouldn't be surprised that Michael Moore plans to do a documentary on Donald Trump's presidency. He's been outspoken about the President since the election.

However, with as quickly as new issues are arising around him, the filmmaker should probably get moving sooner rather than later.

Moore started his documentary filmmaking career with Roger & Me, a film detailing what happened in Flint, Michigan, when General Motors moved its factories to Mexico. Since then he's also filmed Bowling for Columbine, Sicko, and Capitalism: A Love Story.

He's been very outspoken against President George W. Bush and the sitting president. In 2004 he filmed Fahrenheit 9/11 about Bush's War on Terror and the media coverage, and it became the highest-grossing documentary of all time. Last year he filmed Michael Moore in TrumpLand, a film based on his one-person show about last year's election.

And now it's being reported that he is planning a new documentary based on the Trump presidency, Fahrenheit 11/9, perhaps somewhat of a sequel, with "11/9" referring to the day after Trump's win over Hillary Clinton.

This is a project Moore has reportedly been working on for some time with the hopes it will possibly bring Trump down.

"No matter what you throw at him, it hasn't worked," he said. "No matter what is revealed, he remains standing. Facts, reality, brains cannot defeat him. Even when he commits a self-inflicted wound, he gets up the next morning and keeps going and tweeting. That all ends with this movie."

With this latest film, Moore is working again with Bob and Harvey Weinstein, the producers of Fahrenheit 9/11. They have plans to shop the film around at Cannes Film Festival after the previous film won the Palme D'or.

Additionally, Moore is also planning his Broadway debut, The Terms of My Surrender, which the press release described as a "ride through the United States of Insanity, explaining once and for all how the f--- we got here and where best to dine before crossing with the Von Trapp family over the Canadian border." The show will open in August, with a preview on July 28.
