“Gotti” movie was announced one year ago today

HollywoodNews.com: Today marks the unofficial one year anniversary of the announcement of a mob movie called “Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father.” The movie is still not made, but a start date is set for late January 2012. Maybe.

What you may not know: The man behind the still not filmed “Gotti,” starring John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston is a former federal felon who did time in the Allenwood State Penitentiary and has strong mob connections.

Mark Fiore, who announced the “Gotti” movie one year ago but still hasn’t actually made it, is also known as Marco Fiore, Jr.

In the late 90s Marco Fiore and three other defendants were successfully prosecuted by the SEC for defrauding investors in a “boiler room” scheme. Fiore pled guilty to one count of securities fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud, wire fraud, and commercial bribery.
