John Travolta will play the crime boss John Gotti in the biopic Gotti: Three Generations, Variety reports.

Production company Fiore Films has persuaded Travolta and director Nick Cassavetes on board for the story of the so-called "Teflon don" (to whom charges wouldn't stick) and his family, the report says, and scheduled a New York press conference for 12 April with the duo and Gotti's son John A Gotti.

Gotti Sr was head of the Gambino family at its peak, when it was the most influential of New York's five big mob families.

He was given the "Teflon" nickname after trials in the 80s and early 90s failed to convict him, but was convicted of racketeering in 1992 and spent the last decade of his life in prison.
