GOTTI: IN THE SHADOW OF MY FATHER


Al Pacino joins 'Gotti: Three Generations' -- Once more to the mattresses, dear friend


by Jeff Labrecque





Al Pacino has joined the John Gotti film starring John Travolta, and the Godfather actor will play Neil Dellacroce, the longtime consigliere to Mafia chieftain Carlo Gambino, Fiore Films announced, confirming a Variety report. “Dellacroce’s the person who kind of brings John Gotti up through the ranks,” says producer Marc Fiore. “We’re very excited [to have cast Pacino].”

Nabbing the Godfather of Godfather movies for Gotti: Three Generations is a huge boost for the project, which also features Kelly Preston, Lindsay Lohan, and reportedly, Joe Pesci. Dellacroce was a loyal and admired member of the Gambino crime family who was nevertheless passed over for top leadership. He refused to revolt, though, and it was only after his death in 1985 from lung cancer that Gotti felt free to make his move to take over the family.

Pacino has played several different types of mobsters over the years, but this one promises to be different. Michael Corleone was a cold-blooded “businessman” who never said what he was really thinking. Scarface‘s Tony Montana was a power-mad fiend who just wanted to burn everyone in his way. And Lefty Ruggiero from Donnie Brasco was a Willy Loman-esque trigger-man who wasn’t above smashing parking meters for loose change. Pacino’s Dellacroce might be more like Paul Sorvino’s Paul Cicero in Goodfellas, a beloved leader who doesn’t have to demand respect — because it’s automatically instilled in his crew.
