Whatever happened to the Danny Zuko we met at the beach? John Travolta is looking worlds away from the bad boy of Rydell High as he sports a shocking grey haircut on the set of his new movie.
Directed by Limp Bizkit front man Fred Durst, who also wrote the script, Travolta plays the title character Moose, a ‘rabid film fan (who) stalks his favorite action hero and destroys the star’s life’.
Devon Sawa, 39, plays the action hero; he previously appeared on screen with Travolta in 2015’s Life On The Line.
Filming on the movie began this week in Birmingham, Alabama; John was pictured on set with the unusual cut, which may in fact be a wig, and a bright blue military jacket and matching trousers with yellow stripe detail.
The new film comes months after his movie Gotti was pulled from release ten days before it was scheduled to hit theatres.
Lionsgate pulled the plug on their upcoming John Gotti biopic and sold the movie back to the production company Emmett/Furla/Oasis.
It was due to be released under the Lionsgate Premiere banner, telling the tale of mobster John Gotti, who was head of the infamous Gambino family. The movie hasn’t been canned entirely, with a May 2018 release now said to be more likely.
The movie also stars Travolta’s wife, Kelly Preston, as Victoria Gotti, Stacy Keach as Gotti’s mentor, Aniello Dellacroce, and directed by Kevin Connolly.
