Controversial filmmaker Michael Moore reckons U.S. President George W Bush should get royalties from his next film - because he supplied the bulk of the film's inspiration.

The OSCAR-winning Bowling For Columbine director publicly slated Bush at the 75th Academy Awards, as well as in his book STUPID WHITE MEN which the new flick will be based on.

And the Michigan native now suggests tongue-in-cheek that Bush should be credited for his success.

He reveals, "I have already started on my next film, FAHRENHEIT 911, which will focus on events before and after September 11.

"It will come out in 2004. Bush should get royalties, he provided all the material."
