Nick Cassavetes is set to direct a new biopic about John Gotti Jr. for Fiore Films. According to Variety, actor Leo Rossi is writing the screenplay.

The story will follow the intense relationship between John Gotti Jr. and his mob boss father who ran the Gambino crime family out of New York, and then died of cancer in 2002. About the tale, Cassavetes stated, "I think it's a great story about redemption and about America."

Production on the drama is expected to start early next year. The project does not have a set release date at this time.
