John Travolta Responds to Reports His 'Gotti' Film Was Pulled Just Days Before Its Release: 'Fake News'

John Travolta Responds to Reports His 'Gotti' Film Was Pulled Just Days Before Its Release: 'Fake News'
John Travolta is calling out the nature of the reports that his John Gotti biopic, in which he plays the notorious mobster, will no longer be released just 10 days before it was set to come out on Dec. 15.

Movie studio Lionsgate sold the film Gotti back to the production company Emmett/Furla/Oasis, according to multiple reports on Tuesday, thus scrapping its planned release later this month. On Wednesday, Travolta called the reports that his movie was abruptly pulled "grossly wrong."

“Unfortunately, the reports were speculation bordering on fake news,” Travolta tells Deadline. “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. [Producer] Ed [Walson] is a fan of mine and of the Gotti story and really wanted to see the movie. I invited his group, they saw it and bought it. That is the simple explanation for this."

Lionsgate Reportedly Dumped Its ‘Gotti’ Biopic Last Minute Because of Release Plan Squabbles

Lionsgate Reportedly Dumped Its ‘Gotti’ Biopic Last Minute Because of Release Plan Squabbles
After being dropped by distributor Lionsgate just ten days before its set release, the seemingly ill-fated John Travolta-starring John Gotti biopic might get a new lease on life, at least if its producers’ big gamble pays off. A new report from Deadline holds that the film left Lionsgate because of release plan squabbles — it was set to be released by Lionsgate Premiere (which specializes in specialty and limited releases), and its producers were eager to take it to a wide release. The outlet reports that “there was a buy-back clause in the distribution agreement, so the producers exercised it. It was never a matter of Lionsgate dumping the film.”

Still, that’s a hell of a last minute change to make, especially when the film’s release date and plan have been locked for months now. Deadline adds that an outside investor has back the film “so that it

John Travolta’s ‘Gotti’ Looking for a New Home

John Travolta’s ‘Gotti’ Looking for a New Home
Producers of John Travolta’s “Gotti” have bought back the movie from Lionsgate, which had planned to release the mob biopic on Dec. 15 through its Lionsgate Premiere specialty division.

Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films is expected to begin meeting with other distributors about “Gotti.” The company, which produced the film with Highland Film Group and Fiore Films, exercised a provision in its deal allowing it to buy back the movie from Lionsgate in the hope of getting “Gotti” a wide theatrical release. The Lionsgate Premiere release would have been day-and-date for theatrical, VOD and streaming.

Gotti” is directed by “Entourage” star Kevin Connolly from a script by Lem Dobbs and Leo Rossi. “Gotti” also stars Travolta’s wife Kelly Prestor, their daughter Ella Bleu Travolta, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Stacy Keach, Chris Mulkey, Lydia Hull and Spencer Lofranco.

John Travolta has given an update on this story to Deadline, where he's pushed back against stories of the film's sudden removal from Lionsgate's schedule. As it turns out, Travolta wasn't happy with the limited release that Lionsgate was planning for the movie. The film's producers felt the same, and activated a buy-back clause in the original deal. The plan is now to give the movie a much wider release in the new year than it otherwise would have had. A new release date will be announced soon.

Looks like this month is about to get a whole lot less merry for one jettisoned project, as the Tracking Board reports that Lionsgate has dropped its John Travolta-starring mob drama “Gotti” just ten days before its scheduled release. A source revealed to the outlet that the film has also been sold back to its producers, Emmett/Furla/Oasis, which produced the film alongside Highland Film Group and Fiore Films.

CBS Cancels Wisdom of the Crowd Following Allegations Against Jeremy Piven

After only 13 episodes, Wisdom of the Crowd's debut season has been cut short. Granted, the CBS drama - which centers on a tech genius (Jeremy Piven) who creates a crowd-sourcing hub to help solve crime following the death of his daughter - has never been a top performer for the network. Performance aside, though, there are other, more disturbing reasons it might have been canceled. Like so many other men in Hollywood, a collection of troubling sexual harassment allegations against Piven have surfaced. Before announcing the end of Wisdom of the Crowd, CBS had already been "looking into" the actor in the wake of the allegations, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Actress Ariane Bellamar accused the former leading man of groping her on the set of HBO's Entourage and was soon followed by other women alleging they endured similar behavior from the actor. Piven denies the allegations, calling them "absolutely false and completely fabricated.

CBS Cancels Jeremy Piven’s New TV Show After Sexual Harassment Allegations

Launching a brand new network TV show not based on an existing property is a difficult prospect at the best of times, but when the star of the series has just been accused of multiple acts of sexual assault, it’s probably time to throw in the towel. And that’s exactly what CBS has done with new Jeremy Piven vehicle Wisdom of the Crowd, which is about a Silicon Tech valley genius who uses crowdsourcing to solve crimes (apparently, it’s terrible).

Cancelling the show after just 13 episodes follows weeks of accusations by women who claim Piven held them down and rubbed his genitals on them, non-consensually groped them and more. One of his victims, Longmire actress Cassidy Freeman, summed up the current mood towards the former Entourage star in an Instagram post that reads as follows:

“I know what you did and attempted to do to me when I was far too young.

Jeremy Piven Denies Allegations Of Sexual Misconduct With Entourage Staffer

Former Entourage star Jeremy Piven continues to deny all claims of sexual misconduct.

To date, four women have come forward with allegations of inappropriate behavior against Piven, who allegedly took and passed a polygraph test on November 13th in an effort to prove his innocence. But still, the claims continue to mount.

On Wednesday evening, BuzzFeed News ran an article in which Anastasia Taneie, a former extra on Entourage, described a run-in with Jeremy Piven. It occurred on set in 2009, with Taneie alleging that during a break in filming, Piven “forcibly pushed her up against a wall, grabbing her breasts and genitals.”

The actor flat-out denied those latest claims, and a representative for the Emmy-winner has now turned in another statement to Entertainment Weekly.

Jeremy Piven Facing More Sexual Harassment Allegations

Earlier in the month, reality TV star Ariane Bellamar explained how the actor sexually assaulted her during the filming of Entourage, cornering her in his trailer where he, according to Bellamar, “forcibly fondled my breasts & bum.”

This was followed by Longmire actress Cassidy Freeman writing on Instagram: “I know what you did and attempted to do to me when I was far too young. That I know. And you know it too. Unless there were so many of us, that you can’t remember. I hope from now on, you keep it in your pants and you never get to do it again.”
