John Travolta is set to join Aaron Johnson and Taylor Kitsch in director Oliver Stone’s SAVAGES. Based on the novel by Don Winslow, the story centers on two pals from Laguna Beach who share the same girlfriend and a thriving business growing and distributing the best-quality pot on the planet. However, when they resist being muscled out by a Mexican drug cartel, the girl is kidnapped and the ransom is every cent they’ve made for the last five years. The pair agree to pay up, but hatch an alternate plan to get her back, get revenge, and then get lost. Uma Thurman and Blake Lively, who were previously in talks, have now signed on as well.
Stone will produce via his Ixtlan banner alongside Moritz Borman and Eric Kopeloff, with Salerno serving as executive producer.
Travolta is repped by WME.
