Dinesh D'Souza Is Making Another Movie

US President Barack Obama speaks to the media about sequestration in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, DC, March 1, 2013 following a meeting with US Speaker of the House John Boehner and Congressional leaders. Obama summoned congressional leaders Friday in a bid to avert a damaging $85 billion in arbitrary budget cuts. Obama was bound by law to initiate the automatic, indiscriminate cuts, which could wound the already fragile economy, cost a million jobs and harm military readiness, in the absence of an deficit cutting agreement.

Conservative columnist Dinesh D'Souza's is planning a followup 2016: Obama's America (which, in case you forgot, was the second highest-grossing political documentary ever.) Simply titled America, the movie is intended as a sequel to 2016, "though audiences may be inclined to view it as such," notes The Hollywood Reporter. Comparing the idea to It's a Wonderful Life, D'Souza explained that America will "recreate some famous moments in American history and ask the question: What would the world be like if the U.S. had not existed?" The point seems to be that an America-less world is where President Obama would like to live. "We intend to provide both serious answers and have some fun as we take Obama’s dreams for America to their logical conclusions," D'Souza said. If that sounds serious, fun, or logical to you, then get ready: the film is due in theaters just in time for next year's midterm elections.
