GOTTI: IN THE SHADOW OF MY FATHER


Al Pacino joins the cast of 'Gotti'


Thesp added to indie mob drama; deal announced at Cannes

By DAVE MCNARY





Al Pacino has joined the cast of indie mob drama "Gotti: Three Generations" opposite John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Joe Pesci and Lindsay Lohan.
Pacino will portray Gotti associate Neil Dellacroce. Deal for Pacino was announced Tuesday by Fiore Films at Cannes, where ICM is handling worldwide sales.

"Al Pacino is one of the finest actors of all time, and will bring an unsurpassed level of reality and excitement to the film," said Marc Fiore, executive producer and producer of "Gotti" and CEO of Fiore Films. "We are very pleased to have Al join the extraordinary team that we are assembling to make this movie."

The film will be directed and rewritten by Barry Levinson -- who replaced Nick Cassavetes last month -- with additional writing by James Toback. Levinson and Toback teamed more than two decades ago on "Bugsy."

Fiore Films acquired life rights last year from John Gotti Jr., the son of the late mob boss John Gotti, to the story of his life with his father. Production is expected to begin in New York in late fall, with a theatrical release in late 2012.

"Gotti: Three Generations" will focus on the relationship of a father who lived and died by the mob code and a son who chose to leave that world behind.

Preston will play Victoria DiGiorgio, the wife of John Gotti Sr., who's being played by Preston's real-life husband John Travolta. And the couple's daughter, Ella Bleu Travolta, will play the role of their daughter, Angel Gotti. Joe Pesci is on board as Gotti deputy Angelo Ruggiero and Lindsay Lohan will play Kim Gotti, the wife of John Gotti, Jr.

Pacino won an Emmy and a Golden Globe last year for the HBO biopic "You Don't Know Jack."
