Joe Pesci joins Travolta's Gotti film, Lindsay Lohan in talks

04.12.2011

It just wouldn't be a mob movie without Joe Pesci, so naturally he has now joined the cast of GOTTI: THREE GENERATIONS (is that really the title? It sounds like a Dateline special).

He'll be playing Gotti Sr's second in command Angelo Ruggerio, with the top role already filled by John Travolta. Lindsay Lohan is in talks to play Victoria Gotti, but if cast will assuredly be replaced by an actress who shows up to work and will likely be alive all throughout filming.

The movie is being directed by Nick Cassavettes, who recently subbed in for Liam Neeson in a cameo role in THE HANGOVER PART II. Is that even a cameo at that point? I don't know too many people who can identify the man by sight, myself included.

Anyway, the final role of Gotti Jr, one central to the film, is still said to be unfilled, with few actors even rumored for the part. The producer, Marc Fiore, keeps calling the project "the new Godfather," and while I doubt that's true, I am curious to see how it turns out.

Extra Tidbit: Actually, Googling pictures of Victoria Gotti, I understand the Lohan casting in her present condition.

You schmoes are going to have to get used to Lohan because shes got this role locked up tight. In case you havent heard the lohan family is really close with the gotti family and Victoria has told the director producer and writer that lindsay is the one she wants to play her. Lindsay has this role so get used to it. Shell be great too and nick cassavettes is a decent director.

Aside from Lohan (which probably wont work out anyways) I'm really excited about this project. Gotti was crazy and Travolta can still deliver given the right role, plus Pesci!

despite her troubles, i'm always rooting for Lindsay to turn things around for good, mostly because of pictures like the one above.

Considering this guy's other work this is sure to suck anyway no matter who they cast.

Why in the world would people cast Lohan? Not only can she not act, but she isn't even attractive anymore.

"No more drugs for that man."

Nick Cassavetes was Gina Gershon's big brother on Face/Off. The big hulking bald guy.

Wait... I thought Neeson subbed in for Gibson on hangover 2? Was neeson also replaced?? I only know what Cassavetes looks like because of Entourage! he is a big ass dude, with tats all over the place! Not exactly the dude you would have expected to have directed The Notebook and My Sister's Keeper!

If Lohan keeps herself clean and sober, this could be the kind of role to jumpstart her career. but that's a big 'If'.

Maybe his character will take a baseball bat to Lohan's character?

But most likely, Gotti > The Not Faithful Adaptation of Uncharted.
