Lindsay Lohan Working On Getting 'Gotti: Three Generations' Film Role
NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Embattled actress Lindsay Lohan is plotting her return to the big screen and sheâ€™s hoping to do it in the John Travolta fronted film, â€śGotti: Three Generations.â€ť
â€śIâ€™ve been speaking to some of the producersâ€¦ and weâ€™re discussing me possibly having a role in the film, which is very exciting,â€ť Lindsay told a crew at the press conference for the project on Tuesday.
The actress, who is currently back on the East Coast, said she thinks the project, directed by Nick Cassavetes, is a fascinating one.
â€śI think itâ€™s an amazing story in the things that the Gottiâ€™s have gone through over the years and just everything that comes with that family. I think is an incredible story to tell,â€ť she said.
In recent weeks, Victoria Gotti, daughter of late crime boss John Gotti, has reportedly been championing Lindsay for the role, and while Lindsay didnâ€™t say specifically she was going after the Victoria part, she did hint at it.
â€śIâ€™ve never portrayed someone that I know in a film, so this would be the first, which is very exciting,â€ť she said.
Lindsay said she actually met Victoria Gotti when she was â€śyounger.â€ť
â€śSheâ€™s good friends with my mom, [Dina Lohan], and I met Mr. Gotti when I was younger too â€” when I was three â€” which is really funny,â€ť she added.
Lindsay also said she appreciates some of the characteristics of the mobsterâ€™s daughter.
â€śI like that Victoria, sheâ€™s a very strong woman and I really appreciate and respect that,â€ť she said.
The actress added that she can relate to the Gottis because, â€śitâ€™s a Long Island family, itâ€™s just like mine.â€ť
