Joe Pesci Joins "Iconic" John Gotti Biopic; Lindsay Lohan Latest In Talks For Big Role

Deadline says:

Fiore Films made the announcements today at a NYC press conference attended by John Gotti Jr as well as the already cast John Travolta and already attached director Nick Cassavetes. The biopic, titled Gotti: Three Generations, begins shooting in October with an eye to a late 2012 release. Until now, the film had no financier, but today the independent production company announced it will finance the film itself, but declined to say how much it will budget. Producer Marc Fiore says that Joe Pesci has now joined the cast as John Gotti Sr's deputy Angelo Ruggiero, and Lindsay Lohan (newly with ICM) is in talks for a role.

Pesci is kind of old right now... He doesn't look as cool as he did in Goodfellas or Casino.

Maybe he will portrait Gotti in his dying days in jail... Who knows.

All I know is that the Gotti that's already out is pretty good and it covers basically everything you need to know about Gotti's initial ambition, his public glory and his downfall.

He\s not playing Gotti - Travolta is. Pesci is playing one of Gotti's Cappos.
