That "Gotti" biopic with John Travolta you were planning to see next week? Fuhgettaboutit
Lionsgate has sold the mafia back to the production company Emmett / Furla / Oasis, killing the film's Dec. 15 domestic release, according to reports on Tuesday.
Producers are trying to secure new distribution, The Tracking Board noted.
The film, in which Travolta plays infamous Gambino crime boss John Gotti, also features Travolta's wife, Kelly Preston, as Victoria Gotti. The movie, directed by "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly, was shot mostly in Cincinnati in the summer of 2016.
Deadline reported that the film's producers wanted a wider release than what Lionsgate's specialty arm Lionsgate Premiere planned, so they exercised a buy -back clause.
HuffPost has reached out to Travolta rep and Lionsgate for further details but did not immediately hear back.
