Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst is making a movie starring John Travolta

Published March 7, 2018

The hip-swinging star of Grease [1978] and the rocker responsible for Chocolate starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water are joining forces for what sounds like the weirdest movie this side of Let Me Make You a Martyr, the hair-brained caper where Marilyn Manson played a native hitman. The Limp Bizkit frontman, Fred Durst, has written—and is currently in Alabama shooting—Moose, starring John Travolta.

Travolta plays the title character, a celebrity-crazed fan stalking his favorite film star, played by Devon Sawa. According to Variety, the thriller takes a dark turn when Moose sets his sights on ruining the star’s life. The story is apparently based on the rocker’s own experience with a frantic stalker.

Durst already has two directorial credits to his name, The Education of Charlie Banks [2007] and The Longshots [2008]. Limp Bizkit also has a sixth album stranded in limbo. Travolta has at least three other movies on the horizon this year.
