Fred Durst, the one-time frontman of nu-metal rockers Limp Bizkit, has begun work on Moose, a new film based on his life and starring John Travolta.
Durst wrote Moose alongside Dave Bekerman and will also direct the movie. It’s said to be based on his own experience of dealing with stalker several years back and already sounds nuts.
For one thing, John Travolta is already attached to star in a role that’s set to see the Pulp Fiction actor deliver possibly his craziest performance since Face/Off.
He plays a crazy stalker increasingly obsessed with his favourite celebrity action star, played by Devon Sawa of Final Destination fame.
Things soon take a turn for the deranged when Sawa’s character spurns Travolta’s interest. That leaves the Saturday Night Fever icon with little choice but to set about destroying his idol’s life.
“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,” said Andrea Iervolina from AMBI’s Media Group, the company backing the production.
“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.”
If Travolta is struggling for inspiration Sawa might be able to help – he played the bleach-blonde Eminem fanatic Stan in the music video to Slim Shady’s song of the same name.
Moose will actually be the third film Durst has directed, following on from 2007’s The Education of Charlie Banks, starring Jessie Eisenberg, and the Ice Cube family comedy The Longshots, which came out a year later.
