Upcoming John Travolta Movies We Are Excited About

John Travolta is an American actor, film producer, dancer, singer and pilot. He first became known in the 1970s, after appearing on the television series ‘Welcome Back, Kotter’ and starring in the box office successes ‘Saturday Night Fever’ in 1977 and ‘Grease’ in 1978. His acting career declined through the 1980s, but enjoyed a resurgence in the 1990s with his role in ‘Pulp Fiction’ in 1994, and he has since starred in films such as ‘Get Shorty’, ‘Broken Arrow’, ‘Face/Off’, ‘Swordfish’, ‘Be Cool’, ‘Wild Hogs’, ‘Hairspray’, and ‘The Taking of Pelham 123’.

He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for performances in ‘Saturday Night Fever’ and ‘Pulp Fiction’. He won his first and only Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for his performance in ‘Get Shorty’ and has received a total of six nominations, the most recent being in 2011.

In 2010, he received the IIFA Award for Outstanding Achievement in International Cinema. In 2016, he received his first Primetime Emmy Award, as a producer of the first season of the anthology series ‘American Crime Story’, subtitled ‘The People v. O. J. Simpson’. He also received an additional Emmy nomination and a Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal of lawyer Robert Shapiro in the series.

2. The Poison Rose (2019)

‘The Poison Rose’ is an upcoming American crime thriller film starring John Travolta. The film will be directed by George Gallo and written by Richard Salvatore, based on Salvatore’s novel of the same name. Salvatore will produce through his March on Productions with Jeff Elliott, Oscar Generale, and David Ornston.

Morgan Freeman and Forest Whitaker are in talks to join John Travolta in the action-thriller. Ella Bleu Travolta, John Travolta’s daughter, also stars in the film. She will portray the daughter of Travolta’s character, Carson Philips.

‘Poison Rose’ is described as being in the style of detective dramas like ‘Chinatown’, ‘L.A. Confidential’, and ‘The Long Goodbye’. Travolta will play a down-on-his-luck PI who enjoys his share of drinking, smoking, and gambling along with having a soft spot for a lady in distress. The case starts out appearing fairly routine, and slowly reveals itself to be a complex interwoven web of crimes, suspects, and dead bodies. Freeman will portray “Doc,” the godfather crime boss of Galveston, Texas. Whitaker will play the shady owner of the town’s sanitarium for the rich and disillusioned. Principal photography took place in Savannah, Georgia in June 2018.

3. Moose (TBA)

Periodic filmmaker Fred Durst has started work on his third feature, the upcoming action thriller ‘Moose’. In it, John Travolta steps into the shoes of an obsessive stalker, who fixates on an action star (Devon Sawa) and ultimately begins to tear the actor’s life apart. Presumably, Devon Sawa will be dragged into Travolta’s world of misinterpreted conversations, left highly likely to create unwanted consequences. It is also reportedly based on Durst’s own experiences with inappropriate fans.

In getting into the headspace of a man who demands his way or the highway in all aspects of life, Travolta has severely dressed down for the role, adopting a Hawaiian shirt and one of recent cinema’s more thoroughly inexplicable hairpieces. For his part, Travolta has been publicly enthusiastic about his performance and his collaboration with Durst, stating that the shoot has been “Maybe my favorite experience I’ve had. [Durst is] so generous, and such an artist and he allowed me to create a character that no one else would allow, I mean, it’s really a wild character and I felt very free to do that.” It’s unclear when ‘Moose’ will see release, as Durst currently has the film in production.

Principal photography is now underway in Alabama on the thriller. Reportedly based on events from Durst’s own life, ‘Moose’ was written by Durst with Dave Bekerman. Producers are Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi of Ambi along with Oscar Generale and Daniel Grodnik of Wonderfilm Media. Ambi Pictures and Media Finance Capital are fully financing the film. Executive producers on behalf of Media Finance Capital are David Gilbery and Charles Dorfman. Richard Salvatore, Kirk Shaw, Bret Saxon, and Jeff Bowler also serve as executive producers.
