Despite reports of the gangster biopic getting killed due to John Travolta's masseur drama, the film is still on and gearing up for production!
A rep for Gotti insists that not only will filming begin sooner than later, the producers are behind John 110% as he battles the sexual assault scandal, saying:
"The producers of the Gotti film, as well as the Gotti family, fully support John Travolta 110 percent and the allegations that have surfaced against him haven't harmed the project in any way, shape or form.
I can't be more clear about this, this does not impact the film in any way, shape or form. Filming is scheduled to begin later this year and we will be making an announcement shortly about distribution for the movie. It's a very exciting time and we are all looking forward to filming beginning."
I bet they are!! It's only been forever… LOL!!
No doubt John is relieved. Guess it doesn't matter how tainted your name is so long as you did Grease!
