John Travolta seems intense within the first poster for Fred Durst’s The Fanatic. The poster lands because the film was imagined to premiere at Cannes this week. Nevertheless, star John Travolta canceled on the final minute as a result of he was reportedly not proud of the ultimate minimize. It appears Travolta goes again to supervise a closing edit of the Limp Bizkit entrance man’s film, which is supposedly primarily based on a stalker Durst had again throughout the band’s sudden and baffling success.
The Fanatic, which was beforehand titled Moose, options John Travolta channeling his inside Oliver Tree, approaching robust as a creepy celeb stalker. Moose will get cheated out of assembly his hero, Hunter Dunbar, performed by Devon Sawa (Remaining Vacation spot). Moose then hunts down Dunbar to get the celeb interplay he feels he deserves. Innocent at first, Moose’s actions start to take a darkish flip. Towards the recommendation of his good friend Leah (Ana Golja), Moose begins to make frequent visits to his hero’s personal dwelling. Because the visits proceed to escalate, Dunbar finds himself in rising hazard.
Devin Sawa performed an analogous position as Stan in Eminem’s music video for the hit music “Stan.” It is not clear simply what John Travolta did not like about the newest minimize of The Fanatic, but it surely was sufficient to cancel the Cannes screening, which feels like an enormous headache for all concerned within the film. Fred Durst has but to make a touch upon the state of affairs. Whereas Limp Bizkit’s music is seen as divisive, to say the least, the entrance man’s films have been effectively acquired by critics over time and The Fanatic already seems like it’s going to go over fairly effectively.
It’s believed that Amazon Studios has bought the rights to distribute The Fanatic, although that has not been formally confirmed presently. Regardless, the film is predicted to be launched later this 12 months, which can find yourself getting pushed again, relying on how lengthy it takes Travolta to undergo and see the minimize of the film he sees match. It’s unclear if Fred Durst is engaged on the edit with the actor, or if he’s doing it alone.
Whereas the preliminary buzz for The Fanatic has been constructive, pulling out of Cannes unexpectedly could earn the film some dangerous press and will damage the venture in the long term. Possibly John Travolta lastly noticed what he actually seems like within the film and is nervous about placing it out. His look is fairly superb and he seems straight up insane within the photographs we have now seen so far. Hopefully the film find yourself getting the enhancing it wants in a well timed method to get it in and out entrance of viewers as quickly as doable.
