Fred Durst has begun filming his third feature film, Moose, a thriller starring John Travolta as an obsessed movie fan named Moose who stalks his favorite action star Hunter Dunbar (Final Destination's Devon Sawa). According to a release announcing the movie -- which the Limp Bizkit singer co-wrote -- principal photography has begun in Alabama on the story based on events from Durst's life. 

"As Moose’s obsession grows stronger, his fixation turns from stalking to ambition of destroying the star’s life," reads a description of the movie Durst wrote with Dave Bekerman inspired by a real fan who once stalked the singer. The film is the third directed by the "Nookie" star, who previously helmed 2007's The Education of Charlie Banks and 2008's The Longshots, which starred Ice Cube. 

"There certainly is no shortage of amazing Fred Durst stories to tell, but this one in particular is unequivocally cinematic in how it plays out," said AMBI Media Group's Andrea Iervolino in a statement. "John’s range as an actor will once again be shown off as he steps into a character that Fred is all too familiar with – making this pairing so exciting. We have great producing partners in Dan [Grodnik] and Oscar [Generale], and great story for John and Fred to bring to life. We couldn’t be happier."
