Guy Ritchie's new movie is reportedly in jeopardy.
The director's film 'RocknRolla' was due to be distributed by Warner Bros. in America but the company is reportedly worried it will not be popular with US audiences and are unsure whether to go ahead with a wide-scale release.
Warner Bros. president Alan Horn told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's a well-made picture but while it's funny in spots, it's very English. I don't think it's broadly commercial."
'RocknRolla' is about London gangsters who are battling for a slice of a property scam, and was due to be released in October.
Guy, 39, is now attempting to find another distributor.
Meanwhile, Guy's wife Madonna has denied reports she is set to adopt three-year-old girl Mercy James from Malawi.
It had been reported the 49-year-old singer had first attempted to give Mercy a new home last year and had recently renewed efforts to adopt her.
Madonna's representative Liz Rosenberg said: "Madonna has not made an attempt to adopt this baby earlier this year or now."
