Liberal activist Michael Moore is secretly making a new documentary about President Donald Trump's victory in the 2016 election called "Fahrenheit 11/9," Deadline reports.

The title of the movie, produced by Harvey Weinstein, is a reference to Moore's 2004 documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11," which criticized the George W. Bush administration for its response to the September 11 terrorist attacks and its case for the Iraq War. 11/9 is also a reference to the date Trump officially won the presidency: November 9, 2016.

Weinstein praised Moore's message and his desire to make this movie.

"There is no greater part of what we can do right now than to have the power to bring Michael Moore to a mass audience," Weinstein said, adding he was "ecstatic to be a part of this revolution."

Moore touts that his new film will end the Trump administration, but offers no reason why.

"No matter what you throw at him, it hasn’t worked," Moore 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."

Weinstein Co. plans to use the Cannes Film Festival to spread his film and to try to find buyers worldwide, the Washington Times reports.

Moore was one of the few prominent voices in media to predict Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton. Moore has already done one film about Trump, "Michael Moore in TrumpLand."
