Travolta's new movie scuttled 10 days before premiere

He gets dropped by CAA last month, and now this. So much bad luck for such a hardworking heterosexual family man like John!

Aww, I wanted to see it! They filmed a scene at my dentist's office.

It's either really bad, or some more shit about JT's sexual harassment is about to come out. Or both. He sucked in the OJ miniseries (but so did Cuba Gooding), so I bet he sucks in this, too..

by Anonymousreply 312/05/2017

Does anyone know what is about to come out about him? It must be horrible...like worse than Spacey horrible.

Being dropped by CAA is pretty indicative of how bad it must be. As far as Kelly filing, that doesn't surprise me at all. She was probably evaluating her life as she approaches 60, and figured that she deserves to live an honest life in the time she has left.

Wow, something big must be going down, something worse than just being closeted and enjoying masseurs who provide happy endings. You don't lose your wife, your agency and get your latest Oscar bait movie shelved like this unless you've fucking murdered someone.

John who?

Has anyone checked on Olivia yet to see how she's taking the news?

by Anonymousreply 712/05/2017

Although I have never even heard any gossip of this, the one thing which would make everyone want to break all ties with him is a connection with a kid under 18. At this point, everyone KNOWS he is gay, so that ain't it. But just as with Spacey, who we all knew was gay, the charges of him "taking advantage" of a teen boy is just not tenable even in showbiz. That would definitely explain the Kelly jettison.

The ick factor of being married to a man who likes sex with males young enough to be your grandson is pretty daunting. Will Travolta pull a Spacey and use this to come out as a gay man in hopes of getting some sympathy and support? I hope not.

by Anonymousreply 812/05/2017

I wonder if John will ditch the clams if he is implicated in more homosexual scandals...? People like Travolta and Tammy stay in $cientology for protection, and so the "church" itself won't blackmail them with their own "auditing" tapes.

Blackmail Marriage: I guess this is back in the day. When you are stretching back past two decades, it seems like the right thing to call it. The thing is though, despite being back in the day, the three main players in this blind are all known to you. They are known to people who just are checkout stand tabloid cover readers. EP was making a movie when she met WB. At the time, EP was pretty close to A list. She was also in the tabloids a lot. If back then had been today, everyone would have known about her out of control drug use and the crazy sexual situations she was involved in on almost daily basis with her equally out of control actor boyfriend, who we will call MS. Anyway, EP and WB made a movie and they got along really well. They became friends. Fast forward just a touch and WB is off to make another movie. He made the movie with an actress we will call VC. They were long time friends and made the movie to help each other out. It was a movie that would change the life of multiple people and destroy the lives of many others too. WB is in the closet. Everyone knows this, but he continues to pretend he doesn't like men. At the time though, he was using a lot of drugs and the objects of his sexual lust were the teen boys who were numerous on the set. Things were out of control. He molested and sexually assaulted multiple teens during filming of the movie. I'm guessing VC would probably call it an intervention. I would call it extortion or blackmail. VC filmed one of the encounters and gave it to some people who were kind of managing the career of WB. Those people had a discussion with WB and said he needed to do what they told him or they would leak the video and he would not only lose his career, he would go to jail. They had big plans for him and apparently those big plans were more important than what happened to those kids. They put him in a house for two months and got him sober. They also told him he needed to get married. He asked multiple women and his people offered some women. None of the women agreed until he asked EP. She was in a really bad place herself and WB's people agreed to make her problems go away if she agreed to marry WB. Done and done. All these people know what happened to those boys and have done nothing. Money and fame and power were much more important than the lives of the boys they devastated. One of those teens spoke up a few years ago and a team of lawyers rained down on him and he went silent. He was crushed by the other side and later tried to commit suicide. EP: Kelly Preston Out of control boyfriend: Charlie Sheen (accidentally shot her in the arm) WB: John Travolta Movie: "The Experts" VC: Kirstie Alley Movie: "Look Who’s Talking" Group: Scientology

I was on a conference call today regarding Lionsgate and this was talked about. The truth is they were counting on this to be a big money maker and the finished project turned out to be a piece of shit. It's easier and cheaper just to shelve it than spend money promoting it and face embarrassment. The budget was only $12 million. Lionsgate doesn't have the money these days to waste on promoting a bad film. Just write it off.

[quote]What the hell do the Oscars have to do with Travolta?

Probably because I said the movie was Oscar bait. I didn't mean it was GOOD, I just meant it had all the earmarks of the usual biopic Oscar bait we get during this season. Like that shitty thing Depp was in a couple years ago about Whitey Bulger.

by Anonymousreply 3712/05/2017

They didn't really shelve it, it was sold back to the production company. So the p.c. could find another distributor, and release it as soon as that distributor is willing. I don't know enough about those kind of deals to speculate whether it could be for any reason other than Lionsgate didn't like the finished product.

by Anonymousreply 3812/05/2017

Forgot to add: This climate of waiting for the next predator scandal to erupt means even what could be just straight up business decisions look like evidence of wrongdoing. I don't doubt Travolta has issues, but that really isn't fair.

R41 He still gets tapped for high profile supporting roles but all his recent films where he's cast as the lead end up going straight to VOD and have minuscule budgets compared to his 90's blockbusters.

No, r33, Travolta got his big break in the 1974 Broadway musical Over Here!, where he stopped the second act nightly with his big song and dance number "Dream Drummin'." That's what got him his Kotter gig. It was a big hit show starring The Andrews Sisters and also launched the careers of his co-stars Marilou Henner, Treat Williams, Janie Sell, Ann Reinking and several others. And he was indeed fantastic in it.

It's a fun show with a good score by The Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins and other Disney musicals) but it was greatly dependent on The Andrews Sisters (the plot revolves a WWII sister act based on them) which makes it hard to revive.

Travolta really was great and unfortunately never quite so good again.

Paul Baressi, whom JT picked up while filming Perfect at the Beverly Hills Health Club, arrived at the Bel Air hotel in the late 80s to continue his duties as JT's professional "trainer" only to be confronted by JT and his new "trainer" in the bungalow. JT, feeling bad, gave Baressi the contents of his fruit basket to Baressi and said his goodbyes. Pissed, Baressi went to the Enquirer and the story appeared in 1990. The Scienos went after him like a hurricane. They proved to JT that they could protect him and would continue to do so if he played along. But it looks like the tidal wave of bad publicity is even too much for them these days.

He's still dumb as a box of rocks.

He likely had to finance most of the small budget himself, but his ego is still huge to believe that another distributor is going to pick up his mess and give it a wider distribution. He'll learn when he has to settle for an even more limited release than Lionsgate was going to give him.

CAA stood by him for a long while, but they know now he's a lost cause at best and a publicity scandal at worst.
