Lionsgate sold Gotti back to the production company according to reports on Tuesday (December 5), leading some reports to suggest that the movie’s release was scrapped. “Unfortunately, the reports were speculation bordering on fake news. Lionsgate was planning on a minimal release, and I did an investigation into people who might have the interest and financial wherewithal to better release it. [Producer] Ed [Walson] is a fan of mine and of the Gotti story and really wanted to see the movie. I invited his group, they saw it and bought it. That is the simple explanation for this,” John explained in a statement to Deadline on Wednesday (December 6). “It wasn’t easy to get Lionsgate to give it up. They said no, twice, and I literally begged them to reconsider and they finally and generously let it go. We signed this deal about three weeks ago, to purchase back the film from Lionsgate. Our mistake was we should have said something right then and discussed our plan for the film. We didn’t anticipate this speculation that is so grossly wrong.”.....»»

Catherine Oxenberg Gets Candid With Megyn Kelly About Saving Her Daughter From Alleged Sex Cult NXVIM

Like Smallville actress/alleged sex-cult henchman Allison Mack, India Oxenberg (above, insert) could've ended up facing life imprisonment for her involvement with NXIVM. But her mother, Catherine Oxenberg, wasn't about to let that happen.

But her mother, Catherine Oxenberg, wasn't about to let that happen. The Dynasty star appeared on NBC News' Megyn Kelly TODAY Tuesday, opening up up about trying to save her daughter from the so-called "sex-slave cult" disguised as a self-help program. Related: Allison Apparently Married Battlestar Galactica Alum Prior To Arrest! In the interview, the actress told Kelly she found out India was in trouble after she was tipped off by a group member, and tried everything she could to pull her daughter away from the organization. When interventions and quietly going to the authorities didn't work, Oxenberg said she had no choice but to go public with her plight -- which is what she says ultimately saved the 26-year-old. She explained: "If you look at Allison Mack right now, [she is] facing life imprisonment. If I hadn't done what I had done, maybe my daughter India would be sitting where Allison is today. And I couldn't take that risk." As we reported, Mack, a high-ranking member in the group, was arrested in Mexico alongside NXIVM founder Keith Raniere on charges of sex trafficking and forced labor. Related: Jennifer Garner & Daughter Had To Be Rescued From Kayaking Oxenberg couldn't be more relieved over the arrests of these group leaders, because she said going public with her daughter's situation put a big target on her back, explaining: "I'm so incredibly grateful because if they hadn't been arrested I would have had to run for my life … I received threats myself." The 56-year-old added that her daughter wants to stay out of the spotlight, but gave her permission to say "she's moving on with her life." Oxenberg, however, isn't staying silent. In fact, she wrote a book on the whole ordeal titled, Captive: A Mother's Crusade to Save Her Daughter from a Terrifying Cult. Subtle. Ch-ch-check out the crusading mother's interview (below) to hear her story, along with another clip of Kelly grilling Raniere's attorney, Marc Agnifilo. [Image via NBC News & Facebook.].....»»
