Bill Maher and Larry Charles Take on Religion

Bill Maher and Larry Charles Take on Religion

News and business have begun popping up at this year’s Berlin Film Festival and its adjoining European Film Market. One project worth mentioning, is this announced collaboration between Bill Maher and Borat director Larry Charles, which is apparently a look at global religions. Variety reports on its Fest Central blog:

Charles and Maher have already been shooting for some time below the radar in the Mid-East and London, but footage is being kept tightly under wraps. Pic is being hyped as “Borat” meets “Fahrenheit 9/11,” but the only materials that buyers are allowed to see is a single sheet written by Charles, which isn’t permitted to leave the First Look office. “Is religion an obsessive-compulsive disorder?” asks Charles, who bills his movie as “Bill Maher vs. the Anti-Christ (or is Bill Maher the Anti-Christ?)”
