Michael Moore's controversial and award-winning documentary 'Fahrenheit 9/11' has found a US distributor and is now scheduled to arrive in American cinemas on 25 June.

The Fellowship Adventure Group - the company set up by Harvey and Bob Weinstein to handle 'Fahrenheit 9/11' - will join with Lions Gate Films and IFC Films to distribute the film.

In a statement, Moore said: "I am grateful to them now that everyone who wants to see it will now have the chance to do so - thanks to the record number of screens on which they plan to open it."

"We thank this incredible coalition of the willing for bringing Fahrenheit 9/11 to the people."

"This is a true coalition," said Harvey and Bob Weinstein. "The passion that Lions Gate, IFC Films and Showtime have demonstrated reflects our desire to enable Michael Moore's extraordinary work to be viewed by as many filmgoers as possible as soon as possible."
