Fred Durst may be best known as the frontman of hard rock band Limp Bizkit, but he’s also carved out a second career as a movie director.
His latest film draws inspiration from a frightening real-life experience he had with an obsessed stalker.
In Durst’s upcoming film “Moose”, IndieWire reports John Travolta has been cast as the title character, who becomes obsessed with his favourite big-screen action hero (Devon Sawa of “Nikita”) and attempts to destroy his life when that obsession takes a dangerous turn.
“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,” says Andrea Iervolino of AMBI Media Group, which is backing the movie. “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.”
Production on the film is currently underway in Alabama. “Moose” marks Durst’s third directorial effort, following his 2007 film “The Education of Charlie Banks” and 2008’s “The Longshots”.
