Director Nick Cassavetes Leaves GOTTI: THREE GENERATIONS

     April 18, 2011


Nick Cassavetes (Alpha Dog) has vacated the director’s chair for the biopic Gotti: Three Generations. TheWrap reports that the director has been released from his contract due to scheduling conflicts with Yellow, a drama he is acting as writer/director for starring Sienna Miller, Ben Foster, Hank Azaria, and Luke Wilson. Gotti producer Marc Fiore is apparently still set on beginning production this fall and will be on the lookout for a new director in the interim.

Written by Leo Rossi, Gotti: Three Generations focuses on the father/son relationship of John Gotti, Sr. and Jr. John Travolta is currently signed on to play the famed New York mafia boss with Joe Pesci set to make a turn as Gotti’s deputy, Angelo Ruggiero. Lindsay Lohan is currently in negotiations to play Gotti’s daughter, Victoria.

    They Should Hire Christopher McQuarrie, he could be a great choice (I’m just a huge fan of The Way of the Gun).

  • Lydia Roberts

    I hope Joe Pesci does more films from now on after his needless ‘retirement’. Same with Lindsay Lohan who I hope finally stops fooling around like she has been doing for the last six years.

    Travolta -Pesci- Gotti movie I 2nd the vote for McQuarrie he’d be Great.He is Great. Also they should use author Joseph Vincent of book titled Wise Advice Touched by the Mafia Recruited by Law Enforcement .His book on Gotti’s territory ,growing up in Ozone Park NY gives fantastic insight into a mobbed up neighborhood .He even covers Massino-Brasco story due to Massino’s friendship with Gotti. 5 stars on Amazon.Hope Gotti movie is as good as book Wise Advice.
