Fiore Films has confirmed that John Travolta will pay John Gotti Jr. in Gotti: Three Generations for director Nick Cassavetes and screenwriter Leo Rossi.

For a number of months, John Travolta had been rumored for the lead. The storyline will follow John Gotti Senior's life as a mob boss, and his son, John Gotti Jr., who decided to leave that world behind and redeem himself.
