John Travolta`s movie on hold

London: John Travolta`s upcoming movie about the notorious Gotti family has been put on hold due to financial issues.

Travolta, 57, is due to star as late Mafia boss John Gotti - who died in prison in 2002 - in upcoming movie `Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father` alongside his real-life wife Kelly Preston and actor Al Pacino, Daily Star reported.

Filming is slated to begin in January but a new report suggests production has been put on hold. Reports suggest work on the project has come to a halt and won`t resume until more financing is secured.

"If (producer) Marc Fiore doesn`t come up with money this week, and doesn`t show that more is coming, and that he`s really secured financing, it could all fall apart," a source said.

The film`s producers are also facing a legal battle with `Goodfellas` star Joe Pesci, who has sued bosses at Fiore
Films over allegations that he was offered a 2 million pounds deal to play Angelo Ruggiero, an associate of Gotti.
