John Travolta Wants An Oscar for Fred Durst’s THE FANATIC

Earlier this year, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst directed Pulp Fiction and Saturday Night Fever actor John Travolta in the thriller called The Fanatic.

And today it turns out the Travolta thinks a whole hell of a lot about his own performance as we’ve learned the actor has been making the rounds campaigning for Academy Award recognition.

This news comes to us from Will Mavity over on Twitter. Check out his tweet below.

The film currently holds an approval rating of just 18% over on Rotten Tomatoes with a critical consensus that reads, “John Travolta gives it his oddly coiffed all, but The Fanatic rings hollow as an examination of the way fan appreciation can curdle into toxic obsession.”

It centers on a rabid movie fan named Moose who’s obsessed with his favorite celebrity action hero, Hunter Dunbar. When cheated out of his opportunity to meet Hunter, Moose gets help from a photographer who knows how to find celebrity homes. When Moose’s actions begin to take a darker turn, Dunbar soon finds himself at the mercy of his increasingly dangerous stalker.

Fred Durst directed the film from a screenplay he co-wrote along with Dave Bekerman. It was produced by Daniel Grodnik, Oscar Generale, and Bill Kenwright. John Travolta’s co-stars included Devon Sawa, Ana Golja, Jacob Grodnik, and James Paxton, Quiver Distribution released the film back on August 30, 2019.
