LOS ANGELES: Miramax has hired political heavyweight Glover Park Group to help with the release of documentarian Michael Moore's latest work, Fahrenheit 9/11.
The controversial film made headlines recently when Miramax parent Disney refused to distribute the film, saying it was too political. The movie examines events before, during, and after 9/11, and is critical of President Bush.
Miramax plans on releasing the film as early as July 2, but has yet to find a distributor. Moore is planning a cross-country media tour, and the expected political interest coupled with the presidential race could lead to a media firestorm.
Moore already courted controversy during appearances last week at the Cannes Film Festival, where the movie had unpredicted press interest, requiring five screenings in one day.
