    Re: Gotti: Three Generations (2012)

    Barry Levinson Takes Gotti: Three Generations

    Following what has been a somewhat tumultuous talent shake-up over the past few weeks, Barry Levinson has officially signed on to direct the mobster biopic, Gotti: Three Generations, Variety reports.

    Levinson, the director of Diner, Rain Man and Bugsy, among others, will take the helm from Nick Cassavetes, whose schedule recently forced him to drop the project. There was, meanwhile, a swapping of roles for actress Lindsay Lohan who, just a day later, was recast from the role of Victoria Gotti to that of Kim Gotti, the wife of John Gotti, Jr.

    The film, which adapts John Gotti's life from the point of view of his son, John Gotti, Jr, is also set to star John Travolta, Joe Pesci and Ella Bleu Travolta. The rights to the story, which, in reality ended with the death of Gotti in prison in 2002, are held by Marc Fiore and his Fiore Films where actor Leo Rossi is said be supplying the screenplay.

    The film will span Gotti's rise to power in the last two decades of the 20th century and is expected to go into production shortly.

    Re: Gotti: Three Generations (2012)

    I am psyched for this. As a LCN fanatic, I think this movie has potential to be a classic. I just hope Gotti Jr. doesn't come off as a whiner or pussy like alot of these mob kids, turned authors do.
    Spoiler:


    Roll Tide...Because Charlie said so.

    Re: Gotti: Three Generations (2012)

    Al Pacino Joins Gotti: Three Generations
    Source: Fiore Films
    May 10, 2011


    Production company Fiore Films announced in Cannes yesterday that actor Al Pacino has joined Barry Levinson's Gotti: Three Generations as Aniello "Neil" Dellacroce, the close associate and mentor to John Gotti Sr., played in the film by John Travolta. Of course, Pacino has lots of experience playing mobsters himself having starred in Francis Ford Coppola's "Godfather" trilogy as Michael Corleone, played Tony Montana in Brian De Palma's Scarface as well as playing one in the crime-comedy flop Gigli.

    Levinson took over the directing chair when Nick Cassavetes left the project, and he's already brought in James Toback, who Levinson worked with on Bugsy, to do rewrites on the script. So far, the project co-stars Travolta's wife Kelly Preston as Gotti's wife, their real-life daughter Ella Bleu Travolta as Gotti's daughter Angel, as well as Joe Pesci and Lindsay Lohan.

    Shooting is planned to start in the fall for a late 2012 release.
    Pacino is a great actor so adding him is a positive.

    This sounds like it is going to be getting better and better. Travolta, Pesci, Pacino. All they need now is DeNiro and this movie will make money.

    I had no idea this was being done at all. John Travolta as John Gotti SR is going to be great, hopefully they drop a trailer soon I mean we are near June now.

    Don't have high hopes for this. Travolta was fucking terrible as Shapiro in ACS so I don't have faith in him as Gotti.

    Travolta was"terrible" enough to get nominated for a Golden Globe and an Emmy for playing Shapiro.

    Personally, I felt it was his best work in years (outside of Hairspray of course) because he wasn't doing his usual over-acting schtick. He may have paled in comparison to some of the other actors on the show (Vance, Lane to name a couple) but it's not like he was at Battlefield Earth "DO YOU WANT LUNCH" levels of bad. That being said, I don't have much faith in this simply because of how long it's been in production for. I'll give it a shot because the story interests me but that's about it.

    I couldn't get over how terrifying Travolta's face was in OJ, his acting was a little schlocky but that's mostly cuz it was a Ryan Murphy production. Plus he looked like Brando next to Paulson.

    Re: Gotti (2018)

    Wow in the beginning of the Trailer with all these happy scene I was like no pass, but when when Gotti became the top man it seems the Movie is going to get really good from there. I might need to watch a Documentary on Gotti like tonight I'm really interested.
