For a while it seemed like every other movie had John Travolta in it, but in the last year or two he’s cut back a bit. However he has now signed up for a new role – which should allow his to stretch his acting muscles – as Variety reports that Travolta and Salma Hayek will star in the drama A Three Dog Life.
The movie will be based on the best-selling memoir by Abigail Thomas. It follows Thomas (Hayek) after her husband, Rich (Travolta), gets hit by a car. His brain is shattered and he has no memory of his past life. Subject to hallucinations, rage and terror, he is forced to live in an isolated institution to control the side effects of his near-death accident. In order to be close to her husband, Abigail reinvents her life and moves from New York City to the small country town, with her new family of three dogs.
Nick Guthe (Mini’s First Time) will direct the movie, working from his own screenplay. The movie is currently been sold at the European Film Market.
