Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst, whose previous directorial works include The Longshots and The Education of Charlie Banks, is now directing a new film reportedly based one of his own real-life experiences with a stalker. The Fanatic will cast Golden Globe winner and two-time Academy Award nominee John Travolta as the lead, portraying a stalker named Moose, described as “a rabid movie fan who is obsessed with his favorite action movie star Hunter Dunbar,” played by Devon Sawa.

According to the official synopsis,

“When he is cheated out of his opportunity to finally meet Hunter, Moose gets a little help from his friend Leah, a well-connected paparazzi photographer, who knows how to find celebrity homes. Moose turns to stalking to get the celebrity interaction he feels he deserves, and while harmless at first, Moose’s actions begin to take a dark turn as his obsession grows stronger. As the visits continue to escalate, Hunter Dunbar finds himself in increasing danger.”

The Fanatic will release August 30 at select theaters, and will subsequently hit VOD and other digital channels. For now, you can check out the official trailer above.

For more entertainment news, HBO has produced a documentary on American fashion icon Ralph Lauren’s life.
