John Travolta's "Gotti" Biopic Finds New Director, Lindsay Lohan NOT Involved

Posted: May 8th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
John TravoltaSubmit Comment
At one point, John Travolta was set to star in a biopic about mobster John Gotti, called "Gotti." He was joined by director Barry Levinson and such actors as Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Lindsay Lohan, Kelly Preston, Ben Foster and Chazz Palminteri. But the project quickly fell apart.

Now comes word that Travolta is the only actor still attached to the film, which just signed "Captain America: The First Avengers" helmer Joe Johnston to direct. The plan is to raise money through foreign pre-sales at the Cannes Film Festival this month. Shooting is scheduled to begin on September 9th in New York.

"I'm looking forward to portraying John Gotti -- it's been a long time coming," said Travolta. "And I think that Johnson is an exciting and fresh addition to the vision of the film. We are all looking forward to starting production."

Added Johnston: "I think we've always been fascinated with the idea of the romantic outlaw. John Gotti could be in one instance a charismatic, kind and loving family man, and in another, deadly to his enemies. The opportunity to tell the true story of Gotti with John Travolta is a director's dream."

I heard they did away with craft services and installed massage tables instead. Rumor is, when Travolta Gotti have it, Travolta Gotti get it.

Travolta wanted to work on this film only because of the director's last name.

In order to prepare for his role as a tough guy mobster, Travolta spent several hours f*cking male masseuses in the ass Travolta has always had an unusual approach to his "method".

*he was great in SAVAGES

So can someone please tell me how Joe Johnston keeps getting work? (the wolfman, hidalgo, JP3, Jumanji) he peaked at Honey I shrunk the Kids. He sucks. Travolta isn't even the worst thing about this project. "to tell the true story of Gotti with John Travolta is a director's dream." - Joe Johnston and there proves my point as to why he sucks.
