Code Entertainment has announced that John Travolta has signed onto to star in The Forger. The film will be directed by Philip Martin and produced and co-financed by Code Entertainment alongside The Solution Entertainment Group.
The screenplay for The Forger was written by Richard D’Ovidio and tells the story of a former child art prodigy and second generation petty thief, Ray Cutter (Travolta) 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 comments, “It’s most inspiring for us as a creative and financial entity to match such a gifted director like Philip Martin with the enormous talents of John Travolta.”
“John Travolta is one of the great actors of our times with exceptional appeal worldwide. We are overjoyed to bring ‘The Forger’ to life with such a dynamic lead in this classic heist movie,” said Myles Nestel and Lisa Wilson from The Solution Entertainment Group.
Plans are being made to shoot later this year.
