Lindsay Lohan Whacked From Gotti Film...or Was She?

If Lindsay Lohan thought she'd be growing up Gotti, well, she can simply fuggedaboutit now.

It would've been a helluva big-screen comeback, but LiLo couldn't quite strike a deal to play Victoria Gotti in Gotti: Three Generations, a biopic about late mobster John Gotti and his days running the Gambino crime family.

"I promise you Lindsay Lohan is not playing Victoria Gotti," producer Marc Fiore tells E! News. "Talks have stopped and we are done."

Er, not quite...

Though Fiore originally said that Lohan would not be taking any other role in the movie either, saying, "We have no discussions with her," the actress has actually been tapped to play John Gotti Jr.'s wife, Kimberly Albanese.

So what gives?

Even though the Victoria role fell through, Lohan successfully lobbied to remain part of the production.

"I'm really excited to be back on set and clear up all the misinterpretations about me and show this is what I love to do," Lohan told the Associated Press Wednesday. "I think it's such an iconic story."

A week ago, Lohan turned up at a press conference in New York to plug the project alongside castmember John Travolta, who's set to play the Dapper Don, and real-life members of Gotti's family—including Victoria herself, who told E! that she thought Lindsay had the toughness required for the part.

(Here's where it gets confusing: John Gotti Sr.'s wife was Victoria, as is his daughter. John Gotti Jr.'s wife is Kimberly.)

Lohan's casting was not a given, however, as both the filmmakers and Lohan herself acknowledged they had yet to agree to a contract. And given the actress's recent legal problems, locking her into one wasn't going to be easy—particularly since she's still on probation.

Director Nick Cassavetes dropped out of Gotti Tuesday due to a scheduling conflict with Yellow, another indie film he was helming, so the search is currently under way for a new director.

If all goes well, shooting will commence in the fall.
