Pitbull Makes Film Composing Debut with ‘Gotti’ Starring John Travolta
Mr. Worldwide will be making his film composing debut with the upcoming move, Gotti, which stars John Travolta. Additionally, the rapper wrote and performs an original song for the film.
Gotti, the Indie biopic based on the notorious mob boss John Gotti, is Pitbull’s first ever movie where he serves as composer. And on top of composing the film’s score, the 37-year-old rapper wrote and performs an original song titled, Amore, for the movie’s end credits.
Amore is slated to release as a single prior to the film’s theater debut in mid-June.
“It’s true honor to be involved with this project and working with icon John Travolta on the legendary story of Gotti. By default, we were underdogs in our own right and found ways to survive against all odds,” said Armando via a statement.
John Travolta added, “Music has played an integral part in the success of some of my biggest films, and Armando is one of the most electric talents in the music industry today. Everything about him — his style, creativity and culture make his scoring of Gotti — the perfect marriage of the artist and the material.”
Gotti, which is produced by Randall Emmett and directed by Kevin Connolly, will make its debut at a private screening during the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday, May 15th. Sunder Productions and Vertical Entertainment will release the film in theaters nationwide on Friday, June 15th.
