John Travolta Says "Gotti" Wasn't Dropped

Dropped Lionsgate has cut its ties to Gotti starring John Travolta just 10 days before the movie's scheduled release date of December 15

The film's producers felt the same, and activated a buy-back clause in the original deal. Entirely. Seeing as the film was lined up for a December 15 release, the decision to part ways with the film leaves the project in a peculiar spot.

For now, Gottiheads will have to rewatch the trailer and wait patiently for that new release date.

Travolta and Walson are close to working out a deal with an unnamed distributor and are now planning to debut the movie at the Cannes Film Festival next year (18). Our mistake was we should have said something right then and discussed our plan for the film. Travolta's wife, Kelly Preston, and daughter, Ella Bleu Travolta, co-star with him. However, John Travolta, the film's star, spoke to Deadline a day after the news broke to clarify that it was ultimately his decision not to run with Lionsgate.

Travolta then revealed that Lionsgate said "no" twice but eventually let it go after he begged them.

According to a report by The Tracking Board Lionsgate has sold the ownership of the film back to its producers who are now going to look for a new distribution partner for 2018. "We didn't anticipate this speculation that is so grossly wrong", Travolta told Deadline. Gotti managed to avoid jail time throughout the 1980s but was incarcerated for life in 1992. HBO released Gotti: The Rise and Fall of a Real Life Mafia Don in 1996 starring Armand Assante as the crime boss.

Travolta and Fiore Films were some of the constants as the film become a realization. While Travolta remains a big name, one wonders if trying to release a dramatic biopic about the infamous former head of the Gambino crime family during a month where both Avengers: Infinity War and Solo: A Star Wars Story hit theaters would end up being a smart move. What I needed to know was why the public loved John Gotti so much.

John Gotti rises to the top of the NY underworld to become the boss of the Gambino crime family.
