  • John Travolta's new film: more on its late release change

Just ten days before John Travolta's Gotti biopic was due to be released, Lionsgate has severed all ties with the project.

Leave Gotti, take the cannoli.

He continued: "That is the simple explanation for this". There is now no word on when it will be released, other than that the December 15 date is no longer in play.

Travolta said that he and Lionsgate had agreed to cancel its rollout, and he had then bought it back off them so it could get a wider release with a different distributor. It wasn't easy to get Lionsgate to give it up.

Travolta said Gotti is worth a more significant release and so he sought out Edward Walson to buy out Lionsgate for the rights to distribute and promote the film. The film, which started production in 2016 after a litany of delays and false starts, was set to come out on December 15, but will now be delayed as producers start the process of finding a new distributor. The film also stars Travolta's wife Kelly Preston and their daughter Ella Bleu Travolta, along with Pruitt Taylor Vince, Stacy Keach, Chris Mulkey, Lydia Hull and rising star Spencer Lofranco. It's all pure speculation though as there has been no official news on anything related to the matter, though if there is, we will likely hear so soon.

Entourage actor (and member of Leonardo DiCaprio's notorious Pussy Posse) Kevin Connolly directed the movie from a script co-written by The Limey writer Lem Dobbs and The Accused actor Leo Rossi.

John Travolta (R) has rubbished claims his upcoming movie about mobster John Gotti (L) has been dumped. "I learned quite a bit about the family, the mafia and how things worked in that world". What I needed to know was why the public loved John Gotti so much. "I was aware of it, because his fame paralleled when I became famous, but why was he so adored?"

The crime-drama covers the life of the infamous leader of the Gambino crime family.

Gotti managed to avoid jail time throughout the 1980s but was sent to jail for life in 1992.
