While it has been rumored for weeks now, Lindsay Lohan is confirmed to be in talks to play Victoria Gotti in director Nick Cassavetes' upcoming biopic Gotti: Three Generations. The actress joined John Travolta, who is playing John Gotti Jr., at a press conference in New York today, on behalf of the film.
Producer Marc Fiore had this to say about casting the often-troubled starlet.
"Lindsay is a terrific actress. Nothing has been finalized, but we are definitely in talks."
It was also confirmed at the Gotti: Three Generations press conference that Joe Pesci has joined the project. It isn't clear who the actor will play in this upcoming bipopic, which is currently undergoing a rewrite by Nick Cassavetes. Joe Pesci previously appeared in Goodfellas and Casino, both of which had ties to the Gotti family story.
