John Travolta is already playing the Don in a film about the Gotti family, and now his extended cast of underlings in Gotti: Three Generations is slowly being filled up. The film, which will tell the story of the complex relationship between John Gotti Sr. (Travolta) and his son John Gotti Jr. has now added Joe Pesci as Gotti’s second-in-command, Angelo Ruggiero, and Lindsay Lohan is in talks to play Victoria Gotti, Gotti Sr.’s daughter. Nick Cassevetes (who recently replaced Liam Neeson in The Hangover Part II) will direct a script by Leo Rossi (Analyze This) for Fiore Films.
