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

When financer Edward Walson, the producer of five Broadway plays and eight films including Woody Allen's upcoming "Wonder Wall", showed interest, he and Travolta started the process of buying the film back from a reluctant Lionsgate. "I invited his group, they saw it and bought it", Travolta said.

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

Travolta said to Deadline that the reports on the movie bordered on "fake news" and he had intentions of finding other companies who could release it to a bigger audience. It is unclear if the film will find new distribution or when it's now scheduled to debut.

A biopic on the life of NY mob boss John Gotti shot in Cincinnati will not be released December 14 as planned, reports indicate.

"There are nice cars and fancy suits in the movie, but we're also showing where all that eventually leads", he previously told EW, adding, "HBO made a Gotti movie in 1996, but his death, which was awful, hasn't been covered too much".

John Travolta headlines the film, which also stars Kelly Preston, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Stacy Keach.

The film follows John Gotti (Travolta), the infamous head of the Gambino crime family, as he rises to notoriety in the late 1980s and brings his son into a life of crime.

John Gotti, right, arrives at court morning of Feb.9, 1990.

"He's a movie star probably proud of his work and wants to get as a wide release as possible", she continued.

"I've been struggling for the past few weeks with John, and Phil Glasser, to put this deal together with Lionsgate, which wasn't initially ready to give it up", Walson said. "I've seen the frustration that sometimes happens when distributors don't think of out-of-the-box ways to promote a movie, let alone spend any P&A money", he told Deadline.

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.
