BAFTA and Emmy Award-winning director Philip Martin, (who stands behind titles like Hawking and Agatha Christie’s Poirot), will direct The Forger from a script written by Richard D’Ovidio, which centers around Travolta’s character:
…a former child art prodigy and second generation petty thief, Ray Cutter who arranges to buy his way out of prison to spend time with his ailing son, only to be forced to change his plans and commit one last big job for the syndicate who financed his early release.
Code Entertainment’s Al Corley, Bart Rosenblatt, and Eugene Musso will produce the movie along with Prospect Park’s Rob Carliner.
Plans are being made to shoot later this year, in between festival honors for Travolta’s work in his upcoming release Killing Season.
