First Trailer For Fred Durst-Directed Movie, The Fanatic Starring John Travolta Actually Looks Good?

I'd watch it.

Last year, it was announced that Fred Durst was going to direct a movie based on a creepy interaction with a fan and the movie would star John Travolta. Eventually, it was revealed that Travolta would play the part of the creepy stalker.

The Variety description at the time read:

Based on events from Durst’s own life, “Moose” was written by Durst with Dave Bekerman. Travolta is playing the title character, a rabid movie fan obsessed with his favorite celebrity action hero, portrayed by Devon Sawa. 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 trailer was released today and while I was expecting to laugh, it actually looks like a good movie.

The Fanatic hits limited theaters on August 30th before being released digitally on all platforms on September 6th. Here's the poster:

<p>Travolta was tracked down shortly after filming and called working with Durst maybe his favorite experience he'd ever had.<div class=Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.

Speaking to TMZ cameras he said "Maybe my favorite experience I've had. He's so generous, and such an artist and he allowed me to create a character that no one else would allow, I mean, it's really a wild character and I felt very free to do that."

When the TMZ cameraman asked if Durst gave Travolta a lot of leeway, Travolta clarifed "A lot of leeway. I had great ideas and he had already edited this film in his imagination, so he knows how he's going to put it together, so he knew how to let me free within a boundary."
