John Travolta in Talks to Portray Gotti in Biopic

By Amanda Martinez

John Travolta is in serious talks to play John Gotti, a famed New York City mob boss, in an upcoming biopic about the crime family, entitled Gotti. Nick Cassavetes of The Notebook fame is tapped as the director of the project.

Marc Fiore, CEO of Fiore Films, LLC and the executive producer of the film, tells Entertainment Weekly, “We would love to have him. He’s a terrific actor. John Gotti, Sr.—he’s an icon. And so is Travolta…The Gottis have an image already. People know who they are. You can’t just be a good actor, you have to be a great actor who can become John Gotti.”

2011 Oscar nominee and host James Franco has been associated with the role of John Gotti Jr. Fiore is quick to point out that Franco is only one of “several A-list actors” in discussion for the role.

The Gotti family has reportedly endorsed the project, signing on as consultants on the film. John Gotti Jr. collaborated with screenwriter Leo Rossi to help give an inside look into the famous family. Fiore hopes to start filming this summer.
