John Travolta Is Good To Gotti
As John Sr in Gotti: Three Generations
There have been some ups and downs with the project, but it looks like a film about Gambino crime head John Gotti Sr, son John Gotti Jr and their family is finally getting set to shoot with John Travolta signed on play John Gotti.
Nick Cassavetes is also locked in, directing what is now called Gotti: Three Generations, which focuses on the younger Gotti, whose mother tried to keep him and his three siblings away from their fatherâ€™s criminal career. While he initially seemed to be keeping to the straight and narrow with jobs in trucking and construction, heâ€™d really been working his way up the ranks of the crime family and ended up a made man in 1988.
Both of the Gotti men spent time in the slammer, with Jr serving nine years for charges including racketeering and gambling. These days, he insists heâ€™s turned his life around and is working on the film as a producer. Travolta has been rumoured as the top choice to play him for a while now.
Fiore Films has set up the financing for the film, which has been written by Leo Rossi with Cassavetes shooting in New York next month.
