"Rain Man" Director to Helm John Travolta's "Gotti" Biopic

Posted: May 3rd, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Rain Man" Director to Helm John TravoltaSubmit Comment
We recently reported that Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook, John Q) dropped out of directing "Gotti: Three Generation" due to a scheduling conflict. Variety has now learned that Barry Levinson (Bugsy, Rain Man) has stepped in to replace him.

John Travolta is set to play John Gotti Sr, and Joe Pesci will co-star as Gotti deputy Angelo Ruggiero. Lindsay Lohan signed on to play John Gotti Jr.'s wife Kim Gotti. Ella Bleu Travolta will also appear in the film, which focuses on the relationship between Gotti Sr and his son, who chooses to turn his back on the mob code he grew up around.

Production is expected to begin in the fall, with a theatrical release in late 2012. The film will be shot in New York.

It's an insult to the John Gotti and the mob to have a gay dude play this part.

Why couldn't they get Deniro for this part. They got Joe Pesci to maka a rare acting appearance.

@adam - no, that's what Jake calls Friday night with dad.

@Variety - Rain Man had a few directors... so thx. for clearing that up you douche bags.

@Kursk - yep. And his son named Jett (but he's been grounded).

'Lindsay Lohan signed on to play John Gotti Jr.'s wife...' Huh. I thought she'd play the garden slug that salt couldn't kill.
