The “Teflon Don,” John Gotti, jr., will get his story told on the big screen in the Fiore Film biopic “Gotti: Three Generations.”
After months of rumor, John Travolta has officially signed on to play the infamous leader of the Gambino crime family.
Producer Marc Fiore has scheduled an April 12 news conference in New York with Travolta, Gotti’s son John A. Gotti and director Nick Cassavetes.
Leo Rossi penned the screenplay, which Cassavetes will direct.
The story is described as focusing on the relationship between a father who lived and died by the mafia charter and a son who eschewed that lifestyle seeking redemption.
