John Travolta's Gotti Pulled Days Before Release

John Travolta's Gotti Pulled Days Before Release

Travolta says the deal to buy the film from Lionsgate Premiere occurred three weeks ago, which would mean the film was hardly dropped from the calendar 10 days ahead of a release by Lionsgate.

That "Gotti" biopic with John Travolta you were planning to see next week? "They said no, twice, and I literally begged them to reconsider and they finally and generously let it go".

In fact, according to Travolta, who plays the notorious one-time head of the Gambino crime family, the film's backers, with a new infusion of financing from producer Edward Walson, bought the film back from Lionsgate so that they can secure a wider release than the studio had planned. "We didn't anticipate this speculation that is so grossly wrong", he told the outlet.

The feature film directorial debut of Entourage star Kevin Connelly, Gotti showcases what is described as a breakout performance Travolta as the Teflon Don, head of the Gambino crime syndicate that became the racketeering/loansharking/murder-extortion scourge of '80s NY. The movie, directed by "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly, was shot mostly in Cincinnati in the summer of 2016.

"Unfortunately, the reports were speculation bordering on fake news", the actor told Deadline.

Industry experts say these types of situations don't happen very often.

He claimed that he has experience with producing and distributing films, so he understands Travolta's frustration that the distributor didn't think of a way to promote the movie. The jury continued to debated charges that Gotti ordered the assault on John F. Connor, former vice president of Carpenters Union Local 608. And he strenuously denied that Lionsgate had chose to back out of releasing the film out of concern for Travolta's long-standing ties to the Church of Scientology or recently unearthed accusations of sexual misconduct.

"It's very expensive not to release a film".
