Emmett / Furla / Oasis Films is expected to meet with other distributors about "Gotti". The company, which produced the film with Highland Film Group and Fiore Films, exercised a clause in its agreement that allows it to buy back the Lionsgate film in the hope of obtaining "Gotti" a broad premiere in the cinema. The premiere of Lionsgate Premiere would have been the day and date for the movies, VOD and streaming.
"Gotti" is directed by "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly from a screenplay by Lem Dobbs and Leo Rossi. "Gotti" also stars Travolta's wife, Kelly Prestor, his daughter Ella Bleu Travolta, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Stacy Keach, Chris Mulkey, Lydia Hull and Spencer Lofranco.
Travolta plays John Gotti, the brand new head of the criminal family Gambino who spent the last decade of his life in prison. Preston stars as his wife Victoria Gotti. Keach plays Aniello Dellacroce, the deputy head of the Gambino crime family who was Gotti's mentor. Taylor Vince plays Angelo Ruggiero, a friend of Gotti and caporegime in Gambino's crime family.
Lofranco portrays John Gotti, Jr., son of Gotti and eventual caporegime and interim head of the criminal family Gambino before leaving behind the life of the mobster. The Monitoring Board reported the news for the first time.
