Michael Moore's latest doc 'due in October'
The film will be Moore's first since 2007's Sicko, which compared the American health care system to other countries around the world, Variety reports.
His latest cinematic outing will be a "comical look" at the political and corporate events that ultimately culminated in a deep global recession.
"The wealthy, at some point, decided they didn't have enough wealth," said Moore in a statement.
"They wanted more - a lot more. So they systematically set about to fleece the American people out of their hard-earned money."
Overture Films and Paramount Vantage will co-finance and distribute the picture, which they announced a year ago at the Cannes Film Festival.
Moore won the best documentary Oscar for Sicko, and has made several other high-profile political films, including Bowling for Columbine, in which he explored the roots of America's predilection for gun violence.
