Home Celebrity “Gotti” Movie: Ted Field Close to Deal With Summit?

Exclusive: The long-aborning “Gotti” movie — to be directed by Barry Levinson — may have a new life. I am told that new producer Ted Field, who’s come in to save Marco Fiore (aka Marc Fiore), has been negotiating distribution rights with Summit Entertainment. Summit, home to the “Twilight” series, would be a good home for “Gotti.” But Field is still a long way off from pre-production. He still has to raise the money Fiore has squandered, pay all the bills, settle with Joe Pesci on his lawsuit, and get his house in order. At this point, everyone involved with “Gotti” is skeptical. Certainly, there are still issues with Salvatore Carpanzano, the man Fiore announced was executive producer and who was supposed to supply financing. In the meantime, Levinson, stars John Travolta and Al Pacino, and screenwriter James Toback, wait on tenterhooks for Field to save the day.
