Al Pacino joins John Travolta in Gotti picture
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: With all due respect to those behind the movie, the John Gotti film sounded like a bit of a joke.
John Travolta playing the Mob boss. Lindsay Lohan in and out of casting rumors. It felt more like a multi-part TV series in the making, not a major motion picture.
That might be changing. Fiore Films announced in Cannes that Al Pacino has joined Barry Levinson’s film, titled “Gotti: Three Generations.” The Oscar winner will play Aniello “Neil” Dellacroce, John Gotti Sr.’s mentor.
Pacino – Michael Corleone – back in a Mafia movie? It’s enough to get the heart racing. Suddenly, the Gotti project is one that bears following … and not to see if Lohan will sabotage the entire production from the inside.
ComingSoon.net says shooting “is planned to start in the fall for a late 2012 release.”
