Despite all of the press he’s been getting in recent weeks, the show must go on for John Travolta’s ‘Gotti’ film.
The executive producer of Travolta’s upcoming mob movie centered around the Gotti family has dismissed reports production on the movie has been shut down due to Travolta’s pending personal saga.
JT will play the role of John Gotti in ‘Gotti: Three Generations’, however rumors in Hollywood have suggested that some of the film’s backers had abandoned the project after two masseurs filed sexual assault lawsuits against their leading man.
Both suits were subsequently withdrawn and dismissed, and ‘Gotti: Three Generations’ executive producer Marc Fiore claims that the production schedule has never been compromised.
He revealed during a recent interview, “I don’t know why someone would say something so silly. I would not walk away from my movie because of bad PR. We are moving full steam ahead and John Travolta is still playing Gotti. John has been around quite a while… bad PR means good box office.”
“I’m not too worried about it to be quite honest about it.”
Shooting of the film is scheduled to start in November.
