The 59-year-old 'Savages' actor will take on the lead role in the film, reported Radar online. 'The Forger', which has a script penned by 'The Call' writer Richard D'Ovidio, follows Ray Cutler (Travolta), a former child prodigy in art whose talent wasn't enough to stop him falling into a life of petty theft.
After being caught and jailed, he vows to go straight for the sake of his sick son - but when a crime syndicate arranges for his early release, he is pressured into carrying out one last job.
Travolta has most recently worked with Robert De Niro and Milo Ventimiglia on 'Killing Season', but the film is still awaiting a release date. Production on 'The Forgers' is scheduled to begin later this year.
