John Travolta Set to Play John Gotti in Biopic
John Travolta is set to portray notorious mobster John Gotti Jr in the Fiore Films biopic Gotti: Three Generations, according to Variety.
Gotti Jr. was known as the “Teflon Don” due to the fact that he lived a very extravagant lifestyle, yet court charges never seemed to “stick.” Longtime head of the Gambino crime family, Gotti Jr. was one of the most successful and notorious crime bosses in the history of the criminal underworld. According to actor-writer Leo Rossi, the story is centered around the relationship between Gotti Jr., the father who stuck to the mafia code, and his son who chose to leave the life of crime behind.
The movie will be shot entirely in New York City and will be directed by Nick Cassavetes.
