Michael Moore appears to be greasing the wheels for a hush-hush project called “The Great ’04 Slacker Uprising,” screening portions of the work for the first time at the Toronto Film Festival next month. Little is known about the pic, for which the director shot his 60-city student tour to college campuses and other venues ahead of the 2004 presidential election, documenting what fest literature calls the “the birth of a new political generation.” Word of the appearance has raised the possibility that, like “Fahrenheit 9/11,” movie could be a late entry to theaters with the aim of swaying sentiment before elections.
