Fred Durst and John Travolta Are Busy Making 2018’s First Razzie-Bait Movie

John Wayne once made a movie, called The Conqueror, where he played Genghis Khan and it was so bad that it gave everyone involved in the making of the film cancer. Fred Durst, the absolute worst person in the world with the last name Durst, is making a film with John Travolta called Moose. I will leave it to you, dear reader, to put together how those two facts are connected, but if I was the script supervisor on that film I might want to schedule an early mammogram or prostate exam this year. Just sayin’.

We know about this film because someone sent a press release to Birth.Movies.Death. about it, which I’ll be presenting here.

“Principal photography is now underway in Alabama on the thriller Moose starring two-time Oscar® nominee John Travolta with Limp Bizkit front man, Fred Durst directing for Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi’s AMBI Media Group.

Based on events from Fred Durst’s own life, Moose was written by Durst with Dave Bekerman.

John Travolta is playing the title character Moose – a rabid movie fan obsessed with his favorite celebrity action hero, Hunter Dunbar, played by Devon Sawa (Final Destination, Nikita). As Moose’s obsession grows stronger, his fixation turns from stalking to ambition of destroying the star’s life. The story was inspired by a real life fan who stalked Durst many years ago.”

I’m assuming that other movie websites also got this press release but have Fred Durst in their spam folder. Which is a shame because someone took some pictures of Travolta on set and, well…

Yeah, remember when Pulp Fiction gave Travolta a “second act” on his career? Apparently, there aren’t enough Quentin Tarantino films in the world to give Travolta’s career any staying power.

Also, I don’t know if you noticed this, but Durst’s film has Devon Sawa playing a “celebrity action hero,” three words that no one has ever used to describe Devon Sawa in any combination, but I guess “washed up twink” doesn’t look great on a press release.

Also, who is stalking Fred Durst? Were the guys from Linkin Park already full up on stalkers or something? Did Durst imagine him? Did he just keep bumping into some weird guy at the Tom Hardy store? That’s an employee, Fred, he’s not stalking you, he’s just trying to meet his monthly of quota of red baseball caps sold.
