That “Gotti” biopic with John Travolta you were planning to see next week? Fuhgettaboutit.
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 in New York City and Cincinnati and was made for about $10 million, according to IMDB.
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 a Travolta rep and Lionsgate for further details but didn’t immediately hear back.
