Travolta is playing the title role of a rabid movie fan obsessed with his favourite celebrity action hero (Devon Sawa) and how he goes to destructive lengths to satisfy his fixation, Variety reported. As Moose’s obsession grows stronger, his fixation turns from stalking to ambition of destroying the star’s life — a story inspired by a real-life fan who stalked Durst many years ago.

The story has been co-written by Durst and Dave Bekerman. Before Moose, Durst directed the films The Education of Charlie Banks, which starred Jesse Eisenberg, and The Longshots, starring Ice Cube.

Principal photography is currently underway in Alabama. No release date has yet been set.
