John Travolta films ‘Cigarette’

John Travolta is currently filming ‘Cigarette’ in Puerto Rico.

The 63-year-old movie star was in character as Ben Aronoff, a thinly-veiled version of Cigarette founder Don Aronow.

Director John Luessenhop (Texas Chainsaw 3D, Takers) is helming the fictionalised biopic, which also stars Matthew Modine and James Remar.

Brooklyn-born Aronow, was murdered in 1987. He built boats for President George H.W. Bush, the Shah of Iran and drug runners.

The movie was previously being filmed under the title ‘Speed Kills’, before changing to ‘Cigarette’.
