(Newser) – Michael Moore’s upcoming Capitalism: A Love Story might be his final documentary, he tells the Detroit News. "While I've been making this film, I've been thinking that maybe this will be my last documentary," Moore says. "Or maybe for a while." Instead, the most successful documentary director of all time is setting his sights elsewhere at the box office.

"I have been working on two screenplays over the last couple of years," Moore says. "One's a comedy, one's a mystery, and I really want to do this." In the meantime, Moore fans will have to be content with the sure-to-be-controversial Capitalism. "I thought, why don't I just go for it and go right to the source of the problem—an economic system that is unfair, it's unjust and it's not democratic,” he says. “And now we've learned it doesn't work.”
