Just ten days before its release, Lionsgate has pulled the John Travolta mob drama  from the schedule and sold the film back to its producers, an individual with knowledge of the project has told the Tracking Board.

bought back the rights to Gotti, having produced it with Highland Film Group and Fiore Films. Now that the film will no longer be released under the Lionsgate Premiere banner, the producers will begin to meet with new distributors. They should find there’s actual interest in this movie, which offers the Oscar-nominated actor his juiciest role in years.

Travolta is joined by his wife Kelly Preston and their daughter Ella Bleu Travolta, as well as Pruitt Taylor Vince, Stacy Keach, Chris Mulkey, Lydia Hull and rising star Spencer Lofranco.

Entourage star Kevin Connolly (whose 30 for 30 entry Big Shot was quite good) directed the mafia movie, which boasts a script by Lem Dobbs (The Limey) and veteran character actor Leo Rossi.

Gotti had been slated for release on Dec. 15, but it will likely debut sometime in 2018. No word yet on why Lionsgate decided to drop the movie, but stay tuned…
