Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films is expected to begin meeting with other distributors about "Gotti". The Lionsgate Premiere release would have been day-and-date for theatrical, VOD and streaming.
Directed by former Entourage actor Kevin Connolly, using a script penned by Lem Dobbs and Leo Rossi, Gotti began shooting in July of a year ago.
His real-life wife, Kelly Preston portrays his wife in the film, Victoria Gotti.
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. By contrast, Gotti's producers actually asked the distributor to sell them back the rights to the film, in order to try and pursue a wide theatrical release.
