Travolta will play Gotti

He was a misunderstood, ruff ‘n’ ready American icon, is that it? An under-appreciated guy whose story needs to be told? John Travolta will play Gotti in a movie, and the Hollywood Reporter notes:

    During the press conference at The Sheraton Hotel in midtown, the filmmakers said Joe Pesci will play Angelo Ruggiero. Travolta's daughter will also have a role.
    "This is probably the most interesting untold story in this country," Travolta said, adding that a recent five-hour long meeting with Gotti Jr. put him over the top.
    He cited the "beautiful love I feel from the family" and the dichotomy of Gotti Sr. as appealing, plus he said he is a fan of Growing up Gotti.

Uh huh. From wikipedia:

    While in prison, Gotti offered $100,000 to the Aryan Brotherhood to kill Walter Johnson, a mentally unstable black inmate who had assaulted him. The Aryan Brotherhood accepted Gotti's offer. The prison guards surmised that Johnson was in danger and moved him to a different cell block, ultimately transferring him to another prison.

Wonder if that’ll make the final script.
