John Travolta coming to film ‘The Forger’ at MFA

Actor John Travolta (above), who shot portions of “A Civil Action” here in the 1990s, is headed back to the Hub next week to begin filming “The Forger,” a heist flick in which the Museum of Fine Arts figures prominently.

In the film, written by Medford native Richard D’Ovidio, Travolta plays a former child art prodigy and second-generation thief who buys his way out of prison to spend time with his ailing son, played by Tye Sheridan. Eighty-three-year-old actor Christopher Plummer, who won an Oscar in 2012 for his role in “Beginners,” plays Travolta’s father and partner in crime.
