Lindsay Lohan will star as Kim Gotti — wife of John Gotti Jr. — in Fiore Films’ drama Gotti: Three Generations. John Travolta will play John Gotti Sr. in the film which also stars Joe Pesci as Gotti deputy Angelo Ruggiero. Fiore Films also announced that Lohan will star in its upcoming production of Mob Street which is based on a screenplay by Chaz Palminteri:
“We’re very pleased to have Lindsay on-board for both of these films,” said Marc Fiore, producer of “Gotti” and CEO of Fiore Films, LLC. “She has been very enthusiastic about the Gotti project, and after resuming discussions with her, we were impressed by her commitment to the film and felt she would be a perfect Kim Gotti.”
Production on the film is expected to begin this fall in New York with a release in late 2012.
