Previously known as MOOSE, after its unbalanced lead character played by John Travolta, THE FANATIC is coming later this summer, and you can check out the latest trailer and poster past the jump.
Directed by Fred Durst from a script he wrote with Dave Bekerman, THE FANATIC opens in select theaters August 30 and then debuts on VOD/digital September 6 from Quiver Distribution. Devon Sawa (FINAL DESTINATION, IDLE HANDS), Ana Golja, Jacob Grodnik and James Paxton also star; the synopsis: “Moose is a rabid movie fan who is obsessed with his favorite celebrity action hero, Hunter Dunbar [Sawa]. When he is cheated out of his opportunity to finally meet Hunter, Moose gets a little help from his friend Leah [Golja], 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.”
