Lindsay Lohan to Play Victoria Gotti in Movie Comeback?
By Raphael Chestang
Lindsay Lohan showed a striking resemblance to a younger Victoria Gotti at a press conference in New York City on Tuesday, confirming that she is in serious talks to play Victoria in a new movie.
"Lindsay Lohan is a fantastic, fabulous actress," Victoria raved at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers. "I say that not because of any of this hooplah. I've always felt that way about her, and that is the truth. I have no say in casting. I wish I did but I don't."
'Gotti: Three Generations,' which is being produced through Marc Fiore's production company Fiore Films, has already claimed John Travolta for the starring role of alleged crime boss John Gotti.
"There's a lot of reasons [I chose this movie]," Travolta said. "But number one -- this is probably the most interesting, untold story in this country. What a character to approach and to understand."
Of course, John Gotti Jr. got to know the character very well in real life and he praised his late father calling him "a man larger than life."
Hot shot director Nick Cassavetes ('The Notebook') will direct the biopic which has yet to set a release date.
