Travolta movie featuring Boone County boy
put on hold

Lionsgate has iced John Travolta’s Gotti biopic featuring Boone County's Silas Mayer of Burlington.

"Gotti," was filmed in Cincinnati last summer as a biopic about the famed mobster John Gotti.

Mayer was to appear next week in the film as Gotti when the mobster was a child.

Just 10 days before the film was set for domestic release under the studio’s Lionsgate Premiere banner, Entertainment Weekly says the project has been sold back to production company Emmett/Furla/Oasis.

The Tracking Board’s Jeff Sneider first reported the news, further indicating that producers will seek new distribution soon. A 2018 release now seems likely, instead of the originally planned December 15 debut.

That would be good news for the budding actor from Boone County, but he'll have to wait a little longer for stardom.
