Lionsgate drops Cincinnati-filmed 'Gotti' biopic just 10 days before scheduled release


John Travolta's movie about mob boss John Gotti has been dropped from Lionsgate's schedule 10 days before its release. However, it turns out that the truth is actually much more mundane.

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. While it's a bit unclear why this move was made so late in the game, it's at least now known what the goal was.

Trump is expected to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Wednesday and begin preparations to move the U.S. Arab League chief Ahmed Aboul Gheit warned it would be "a risky measure that would have repercussions".

The Tracking Board's Jeff Sneider first reported the news, further indicating that producers will seek new distribution soon.

The film apparently had a buy back clause included so the producers could choose to purchase rights to the film from Lionsgate.

SFGate's The Wrap reports that producers bought back the film because they wanted a "wide release" - not one at select theaters only, as Lionsgate planned.

Gotti, starring Travolta in titular role, was set to debut on 15 December (17), but was suddenly pulled from the film studio's schedule on Tuesday (05Dec17). Keach is portraying as Aniello Dellacroce, the underboss of the Gambino crime family who mentored Gotti.
