Home Movies John Travolta "Gotti" Movie, with 38 Producers Listed, Sleeps with the Fishes.

Gotti, Gotti, gone. Just ten days before John Travolta's John Gotti biopic was set to open, Lionsgate has cut ties with the movie.

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.

Lionsgate did not explain to Entertainment Weekly why it chose to not distribute "The Life and Death of John Gotti" when it sold it back to Emmett/Furla/Oasis. The film will be directed by Kevin Connolly, best known as talent manager Eric Murphy in the "Entourage" franchise. Entirely. Seeing as the film was lined up for a December 15 release, the decision to part ways with the film leaves the project in a peculiar spot.

Directed by former Entourage actor Kevin Connelly, Gotti began shooting in July of previous year and features Travolta's wife Kelly Preston as the crime lord's spouse Victoria Gotti.

The film spans several decades of Gotti's life, showing his rise from poverty to becoming the leader of the powerful Gambino crime family in New York City.
