A few months back it was reported that producer Marc Fiore was courting burly Hollywood tough guy John Travolta for the biopic Gotti: Three Generations. Well, those candlelit dinners and Build-A-Bear keepsakes must have paid off because the two just sealed the deal. Travolta is locked in to play the Teflon Don himself, John Gotti.
It all seems to be coming together as Nick Cassavetes has also signed on to direct. An offer went out to James Franco to play John Gotti Jr., but there are no updates on that casting. We’re also not sure who will play the grandsons who starred in the reality series “Growing Up Gotti.” But let’s just assume Fiore has offers out to the cast of”Jersey Shore.” It’s really not that outlandish of an idea when you consider Kim Kardashian is in the running.
