The film will be directed by Nick Cassavetes and tell the story of John Gotti, who became boss of the Gambino family, and also of his son, John Gotti Jr. who also headed the family, and sold the rights to make his story into a film.
“This is probably the most interesting untold story in this country,” said Travolta. “And what a character to approach and understand.”
Gotti was known as the ‘Teflon Don’, because multiple attempts to bring charges against him failed (they wouldn’t ‘stick’).
Producer Marc Fiore has not said what role Lohan would play in the film, but reports suggest it would be Gotti Snr’s daughter Victoria.
