Titled Moose, the film was written by “Nookie” artist Durst with Dave Bekerman, and marks as Durst’s third directorial effort following The Education of Charlie Banks from 2007 and The Longshots in 2008.
In Moose, John Travolta plays the title character, a fan who is obsessed with an action star, portrayed by Devon Sawa, and sets out to destroy the star’s life when his fixation turns from stalking to becoming disastrous — which is essentially a story inspired by a real-life fan who stalked Durst many years ago.
With the film backed by Ambi Media Group, producer Andrea Iervolino shared, “There certainly is no shortage of amazing Fred Durst stories to tell, but this one in particular is unequivocally cinematic in how it plays out,” She added, “John’s range as an actor will once again be shown off as he steps into a character that Fred is all too familiar with – making this pairing so exciting.”
Moose is currently being filmed in Alabama, and according to IMDb, it’s expected to premiere later in 2018.
