TMZ is throwing this against the wall to see if it sticks.
Director Nick Cassavetes (â€śThe Notebookâ€ť â€śAlpha Dog,â€ť â€śMu Sisterâ€™s Keeperâ€ť) is pursuing John Travolta for a movie he wants to make about the Gotti crime family.
Travolta would play â€śThe Teflon Don.â€ť And James Franco might be in line to play the son.
Will it transpire? Travolta could use a prestige picture or something that breaks the mold for him, though they havenâ€™t always been kind to him in the past (â€śLonely Hearts,â€ť A Love Song for Bobby Long.â€ť).
The veracity of this rumor? Well, Nick, as an actor, was in â€śFace/Offâ€ť with Travolta. They know each other, so thatâ€™s half the battle. â€śGottiâ€ť may be a deal that gets done.
