'Obama's America' Filmmakers Plan Second Documentary Called 'America'

Posted: Updated:

Political rabble-rouser and much-maligned author and documentarian Dinesh D'Souza is teaming up with Gerad Molen, the Oscar-winning producer behind "Schindler's List" and "Jurassic Park" for a new attack on Barack Obama.

THR reports that the duo -- who worked on "2016: Obama's America," an infamous documentary that positioned the president as harboring a dangerous, anti-colonialist streak -- will release "America," a look into what world events would have been like had the United States not existed.

D'Souza and Molen told THR they don't intend the film to be a follow-up, despite simply shaving two words off the first movie's title for the second's name.

"Obama's America" made $33.4 million at the box office on a scant budget of $2 million, making it the second-most successful political documentary in history, behind only Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11." D'Souza's movie is No. 4 on the list of all-time highest grossing documentaries, behind "Fahrenheit," "March of the Penguins" and "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," though it's worth nothing that "Never Say Never" alone took in nearly double the haul as "Obama's America."

The most famous scene in "Obama's America" sees D'Souza traveling to Kenya to interview Obama's half-brother. THR notes the filmmakers say they have similar surprises for the second movie. “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.

D'Souza ran into some personal trouble last year, when he resigned as the president of the evangelical King's College after being accused of adultery. Though he denied the accusations, D'Souza claimed his resignation would rid the school of the distraction.

A teaser trailer for the movie -- which was revealed at this year's CPAC -- is available above.
