John Travolta Set for Heist Thriller THE FORGER

Tye Sheridan to co-star.

It has been announced that John Travolta (‘Pulp Fiction,’ ‘Saturday Night Fever’) and 16 year-old actor Tye Sheridan (‘Mud,’ ‘Tree of Life’) have signed on to star in BAFTA and Emmy Award-winning director Philip Martin’s crime thriller ’The Forger.’

Written by Richard D’Ovidio (‘The Call’), the film tells the story Ray Cutter (Travolta), a former child art prodigy and second generation petty thief, who arranges to buy his way out of prison to spend time with his ailing son (Sheridan), only to be forced to change his plans and commit one last big job for the syndicate who financed his early release.

‘The Forger’ will be produced and co-financed by Code Entertainment alongside The Solution Entertainment Group. Principal photography is expected to kick off this October in Boston.
