In mid-April, Nick Cassavetes dropped out of /gotti-three-generations-loses-nick-cassavetes/directing the upcoming biopic Gotti: Three Generations. Today, Barry Levinson has taken over the project.

John Travolta, Joe Pesci, and Lindsay Lohan have all signed onto this drama that will follow the life's path of reformed gangster John Gotti Jr. This will be the first time a Gotti has given permission to have a film made about their family's life.

Production on Gotti: Three Generations will begin in the fall, with a release date planned for sometime in 2012. This biopic will be shot on-location in and around New York City.
