The filmmakers behind the upcoming film Gotti: Three Generations are assembling a team of titans to surround John Travolta as John Gotti. One of those titans, Joe Pesci, is already signed on to play Angelo Ruggiero, and Lindsay Lohan is in talks to play Victoria Gotti. “In talks” presumably means buying her massive amounts of cocaine, but on the other hand, I’m an idiot.
The producers are also reportedly in talks with someone to play John Gotti, Jr., but aren’t “ready to announce the actor” who’s getting the part. Maybe James Franco? It wouldn’t be unheard of. Nick Cassavetes is directing all the characters shouting at each other from the point of view of Gotti’s son, so it will probably be something approaching a lead role. I hope it is Franco, he needs the work. (ComingSoon)
