  • Actor John Travolta arrives at the 22nd Annual Critics' Choice Awards in Santa Monica California U.S

One of the film's executive producers, Keya Morgan, tells TMZ the "Gotti" project was originally supposed to be distributed by Lionsgate Premiere. a branch of the company that handles smaller, niche releases.

"Unfortunately, the reports were speculation bordering on fake news", the actor told Deadline. They are now looking for a new distributor, with a view of getting the film into the wild in 2018. "Lionsgate was planning on a minimal release and I did an investigation into people who might have the interest and financial wherewithal to better release it". It wasn't easy to get Lionsgate to give it up.

Travolta says he found a partner in Edward Wilson, who has produced films like Woody Allen's "Cafe Society" and "Wonder Wheel".

The feature film directorial debut of Entourage star Kevin Connelly, Gotti showcases what is described as a breakout performance Travolta as the Teflon Don, head of the Gambino crime syndicate that became the racketeering/loansharking/murder-extortion scourge of '80s NY.

Travolta then revealed that Lionsgate said "no" twice but eventually let it go after he begged them. The film's producers felt the same, and activated a buy-back clause in the original deal.

The mob epic stars Travolta as the famed NY mobster John Gotti, a larger-than-life real-life mob figure with a compelling story who had somehow never before been the subject of a full-on Hollywood biopic. The film costars Travolta's wife Kelly Preston as Victoria Gotti, the mob wife-turned gossip columnist and reality star as well as William DeMeo as Sammy "Bull" Gravano, the mob underboss who ultimately turned on Gotti. "We are hoping to take this movie to Cannes; it's a movie star film that deserves the glitter of Cannes, and then a wide release shortly thereafter".
