According to documents that have been released during Michael Moore’s divorce proceedings, it has been revealed that Moore was offered financing to produce a film about the Sandy Hook massacre less than 3 days after the event occurred.

According to the website, The Smoking Gun, the information was included in a documented related to evidence submitted in Moore’s divorce case from his wife Kathleen Glynn,

In another filing, Glynn noted that–in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre–Moore had been offered financing for an anti-gun film. In an e-mail sent three days after the December 2012 shooting, producer Michael Donovan wrote that he was “personally prepared to finance a film” by Moore about the Newtown, Connecticut killings.

Donovan and Moore, pictured above, shared the 2002 Academy Award for best documentary feature for “Bowling for Columbine.” While Moore acknowledged receiving Donovan’s e-mail, court records do not include the director’s response to the financing offer. (7 pages)

Of course, Moore is best known for his production of the anti-gun film Bowling for Columbine in 2002 in which Moore railed against the NRA, pro-gun politicians, and ambushed a very elderly Charlton Heston at his home.

It should be noted that at the time the email was written, very little facts were known about the Sandy Hook killings.

According to Wikipedia,

Michael Patrick Donovan is a Canadian film producer and screenwriter. He co-founded Salter Street Films which later was bought by Alliance Atlantis in 2001. Donovan currently serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors, Chief Executive Officer of DHX Media.
