Lionsgate has sold the mafia movie back to the production company Emmett/Furla/Oasis, killing the film's December 15 domestic release, according to reports on Tuesday. It also features Travolta's wife Kelly Preston as the crime lord's spouse Victoria Gotti, and their daughter Ella Bleu Travolta as Angel Gotti, as well as Pruitt Taylor Vince, Stacy Keach, Chris Mulkey and Lydia Hull. The film will be directed by Kevin Connolly, best known as talent manager Eric Murphy in the "Entourage" franchise.

The Tracking Board's Jeff Sneider first reported the news, further indicating that producers will seek new distribution soon. There may be a simple explanation for that, as an outside investor reportedly financially backed the film for a wide release, and it's unclear exactly when they did that.
