John Travolta's Gotti Pulled Days Before Release

Lions Gate has sold the John Travolta biopic directed by Kevin Connolly back to its producers and investors.

EW previously confirmed that the film, directed by Entourage star Kevin Connolly, had been sold back to production company Emmett/Furla/Oasis, which was said to be seeking a new distributor for a 2018 release, as opposed to the originally planned December 15 theatrical bow. The movie - which centers around the activities of the Italian Mafia - was canceled just ten days before it hit theaters because of, in Travolta's words, "fake news". The production company reportedly exercised a buy back clause so that they could give it a bigger push. Except, it appears as it wasn't that good after all as the studio, Lionsgate has dropped it from their release slate completely m - only a few weeks away from the films actual planned release date.

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

John Travolta's Gotti biopic, which was filmed all around Greater Cincinnati this summer, has been sold back to its production company just 10 days before its scheduled December 15 release.

Walson and Travolta revealed they are near a deal with a larger distributor for the film and plan to submit it to the Cannes Film Festival.
