Tye Sheridan Joins Travolta In “Forger”

Tye Sheridan (“Mud, “The Tree of Life”) is set to join the cast of Philip Martin’s heist thriller “The Forger” at Code Entertainment and The Solution Entertainment Group.

Richard D’Ovidio (“The Call”) penned the script in which John Travlota plays Ray Cutter, a former child art prodigy and second generation petty thief.

He arranges to buy his way out of prison to spend time with his ailing son Will (Sheridan), only to be forced to change his plans and commit one last big job for the syndicate who financed his early release.

Al Corley, Bart Rosenblatt, Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel will produce. Filming begins in Boston in October.
