Lionsgate drops John Travolta's 'Gotti' 10 days before release
08 December, 2017, 01:56 | Author: Irene Delgado
Just ten days before John Travolta'sGotti biopic was due to be released, Lionsgate has severed all ties with the project. The Emmett/Furla/Oasis production company now plans to shop it around to distributors for a 2018 release, rather than its planned December 15 date.
Lionsgate did not specify a reason for the sale, Vulture reports, while Deadline report that the sale was due to conflict in the distribution plans for the film. The film's producers felt the same, and activated a buy-back clause in the original deal.
In an interview with Deadline published late last night, Travolta characterised the reports on the film as "speculation bordering on fake news". It also features Travolta's wife Kelly Preston as the crime lord's spouse Victoria Gotti, and their daughter Ella Bleu Travolta as Angel Gotti, as well as Pruitt Taylor Vince, Stacy Keach, Chris Mulkey and Lydia Hull.
He continued: "That is the simple explanation for this". No word yet on why Lionsgate chose to drop the movie, but stay tuned...
Gotti - who died aged 61 of throat cancer in prison in 2002 - was one of the most powerful and risky crime bosses in the world. John said he "begged" them to reconsider and finally they "generously" let it go.
