The film legend worked with Durst on the upcoming film, Moose. It’s co-written and directed by the rap-metal star and sees Travolta playing “a rabid movie fan obsessed with his favourite celebrity action hero”.
It’s been reported that his character’s obsession “grows stronger, his fixation turns from stalking to ambition of destroying the star’s life”.
The movie is said to have been inspired by the real-life story of a fan that once stalked Durst.
Discussing the project with TMZ, Travolta revealed his admiration for the ‘Rollin” musician, saying: “It was maybe my favourite experience I’ve had.” The actor then hailed Durst as “so generous” and “such an artist”.
“He allowed me to create a character that no one else would allow,” he continued. “It’s really a wild character and I felt very free to do that.”
He added: “He already edited this film in his imagination so he knows how he’s gonna put it together.”
No release date for Moose has yet been announced.
Durst previously directed the films The Education of Charlie Banks, which starred Jesse Eisenberg, and The Longshots, starring Ice Cube.
In other news, it was reported earlier today that Limp Bizkit‘s Wes Borland and Blink-182‘s Travis Barker are teaming up on a new project.
Meanwhile, Staind’s Aaron Lewis has recently hit-out at Borland as a feud between the musicians continues to escalate.
Limp Bizkit famously helped Staind crack the mainstream after frontman Fred Durst signed them to his own imprint Flip Records. However, now there appears to be bad blood between the two bands.
