John Travolta's 'Gotti' Biopic Gets Whacked By Lionsgate 10 Days Before Its Release

Lionsgate Drops John Travolta's Mob Drama “Gotti,” Sells Film Back to Producers (Exclusive)

However, the film's star John Travolta, isn't happy that the news makes it sound like the film was cut. He and Lionsgate had mutually cancelled its rollout, and he had then bought it back off them so it could get a wider release with a different distributor in producer Edward Walson.

"Our mistake was we should have said something right then, and discussed our plan for the film", Travolta said.

But, in an interview with Deadline published Wednesday morning, Travolta pushed back, saying the speculation surrounding the fate of "Gotti" was "bordering on fake news".

Gotti was set to debut on 15 December (17), but disappeared from the film company's schedule on Tuesday (05Dec17), after executives sold the project back to bosses at the production company Emmett/Furla/Oasis.

Speaking about the movie recently, Connolly told Entertainment Weekly: "There are nice cars and fancy suits in the movie, but we're also showing where all that eventually leads".

Travolta, 63, plays the famous mobster alongside his wife Kelly Preston as Victoria Gotti and Stacy Keach as Aniello Dellacroce.

John Travolta denies Lionsgate sent "Gotti" to sleep with the fishes, 10 days before its scheduled release.

John Gotti rises to the top of the NY underworld to become the boss of the Gambino crime family. "This is a big movie-star film, with a multi-dimensional, iconic character portrayed by one of the great multi-talented actors", Walson said.

The star found new financial backing for the movie to enable a wide release.

However, Travolta conceded that Lionsgate didn't want to give it up and said "no" twice.

"It's a bold move", she continued.

"It's a supreme piece of work I thought deserves proper recognition".

Gotti was likely meant as an Oscar vehicle for Travolta, who impressed in his Emmy-nominated turn as Robert Shapiro in the anthology TV series The People v. OJ: American Crime Story.
