International distributor Lionsgate is in advanced talks to buy U.S. rights to conservative writer Dinesh D’Souza (pictured) and filmmaker John Sullivan’s documentary America: Imagine A World Without Herrealscreen has confirmed.

While the film – which comes two years after the pair’s right wing-leaning 2012 doc 2016: Obama’s America - was scheduled for wide release on July 4, Lionsgate’s plan would push up the date by two days, meaning the film will get a limited release on June 27 and open widely on July 2.

Lionsgate also handled the home entertainment distribution of 2016: Obama’s America, which is the second highest grossing political documentary in the U.S. behind Michael Moore’s Farenheit 9/11, also distributed by Lionsgate.

In America, D’Souza questions what has made America great and its impact on the world, and argues that American ideals and patriotism should be celebrated. The doc envisions what the political and social landscape would be in the U.S. if it had lost the Revolutionary War.
