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

However, according to Travolta, who spoke to Deadline on Wednesday, this is "fake news".

The news came via Tracking Board on Wednesday, which reported that Lionsgate had sold the film back to production company Emmett/Furla/Oasis, which would now be looking for new distribution and certainly not managing a 2017 release.

The "Gotti" movie again sleeps with the fishes.

Gotti was originally set to be released on December 15. No word yet on why Lionsgate chose to drop the movie, but stay tuned...

Travolta then revealed that Lionsgate said "no" twice but eventually let it go after he begged them.

"Our mistake was we should have said something right then, and discussed our plan for the film", Travolta said. "We didn't anticipate this speculation that is so grossly wrong" - that his film would "sleep with the fishes".

Travolta, 63, plays the famous mobster alongside his wife Kelly Preston as Victoria Gotti and Stacy Keach as Aniello Dellacroce.

Des terroristes islamistes voulaient éliminer Theresa May — Attentat déjoué
Ils préparaient un attentat contre le 10 Downing Street, la résidence londonienne de la Première ministre, selon le Daily Mirror. Puis, ils comptaient s'introduire à l'intérieur avant d'attaquer Theresa May au couteau, ont rapporté plusieurs médias .

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.

But, in an interview with Deadline published Wednesday morning, Travolta pushed back, saying the speculation surrounding the fate of "Gotti" was "bordering on fake news".

Industry experts say these types of situations don't happen very often.

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.

"He's a movie star probably proud of his work and wants to get as a wide release as possible", she continued.

John Gotti rises to the top of the NY underworld to become the boss of the Gambino crime family. Attorney Gerald Schargel follows Gotti and his brother Peter Gotti, at left.

"I've been struggling for the past few weeks with John, and Phil Glasser, to put this deal together with Lionsgate, which wasn't initially ready to give it up", Walson said.
