John Travolta's career looks like it desperately needs a second comeback. We thought it might happen with his excellent turn as OJ Simpson's lawyer, Robert Shapiro, in 2016’s “The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” Ever since then? Nada. Zilch. Zero.
His next project does sound fascinating. TMZ asked Travolta about “The Fanatic,” a film directed by Fred Durst, yes of Limp Bizkit fame, and the actor had nothing but raves for his filmmaker, “Maybe my favorite experience I’ve had. He’s so generous and he’s such an artist. And he allowed me to create a character that no one else would allow.”
The best experience that Travolta ever had? In a film directed by Limp Bizkit's frontman?
“The Fanatic” is based on a real-life experience that Durst had. The film is about an obsessed fan, played by Travolta, who begins stalking his favorite action-film star, played by Devon Sawa (Remember him? From “Idle Hands” and “SLC Punk?”).
Previously titled “Moose,” Bloody Disgusting is reporting that principal photography took place in Alabama.
