Top Dog VR

John Travolta's new project looks -- and we didn't think this was possible -- even worse than his critically reviled mob movie "Gotti."

ScreenCrush's E. Oliver Whitney stumbled across these badly Photoshopped posters of an upcoming Travolta project called "Speed Kills," with such winning taglines as "Big Money," "Fast Friends," and "Breaking Hearts."  But are they real?

But is this real? As real as any of Nicolas Cage's recent gonzo action films.

"Speed Kills" is an upcoming feature film and the "Speed Kills VR Experience" is a 360-degree experience that was shot at the same time as the movie and is  already on Oculus, the Google Play store, and Apple’s app store .

And it's all based on the true story of a guy who built the fastest speed boat ever, which was used by both the US Coast Guard and drug smugglers from the '60s through the '80s.

The cast includes Kellan Lutz, James Remar, and Tom Sizemore. And Matthew Modine as then-Vice President George Bush. Wow.

How did Travolta end up in this mess? Perhaps the opening line in the trailer is the key: "Sometimes it doesn't matter who you are, what you have. It's just too hard to say no."

The movie is reportedly getting a theatrical release on November 16, 2018.
