But let's recap for a moment.

Here's news you can use: Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is returning to filmmaking to make a movie called Moose starring John Travolta.

According to Variety, Travolta will play the title character - 'a rabid movie fan [who's] obsessed with his favourite celebrity action hero [played by Devon Sawa].

Durst made a name for himself in the filmmaking world (not to discredit the legacy of his video of Staind's "It's Been Awhile") with his 2007 feature The Education of Charlie Banks, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Ritter.

And now we've reached the point where Durst has been given the green light to direct the semi-autobiographical film Moose, which he co-wrote.

This is Durst's second go at a feature film.

The film was written by Durst and Dave Bekerman with the script inspired by a real-life fan who stalked Durst at the beginning of his career.

Principal photography is now taking place in Alabama with production commencing in April, and 47 year old Durst is helming the project for the Ambi Media Group.

This could be a very interesting project indeed - and just imagine if it's Oscar-worthy. As we all know, Travolta is no stranger to playing a bad guy, taking the turn in Swordfish and one could argue that he was a villain to the entire movie industry in Battlefield Earth. Isn't the future wonderful?
