Joe Pesci has officially signed on to play Angelo Ruggiero in Gotti: Three Generations, joining John Travolta who was already cast as John Gotti. Lindsay Lohan is also currently in talks to join the film project as well. If cast she will take on the role of Victoria Gotti the daughter of John Gotti. Really? People are still willing to work with her? I don't get it.
Nick Cassavetes is directing the biopic, and he's currently looking to cast the actor who will take on the role of John Gotti Jr.
The movie was written by Leo Rossi and the story primarily focuses on John Gotti Sr. and John Gotti Jr. The younger Gambino crime family figure endorses the movie and actually consulted on the script. The film is reportedly a ‘tell-all’ story. Producer Marc Fiore also calls the film “the new Godfather,” saying “it’s a story about a father and a son, but the father happens to be John Gotti Sr.”
Travolta has said that "This is probably the most interesting untold story in this country," and added that a recent five-hour long meeting with Gotti Jr. put him over the top.
What are your thoughts on this new casting news for the film?
