Lindsay Lohan Confirmed for Role in "Gotti" Film
It”s (finally) official: Lindsay Lohan will appear in the upcoming “Gotti: Three Generations” movie. After days of conflicting reports, UsMagazine.com confirmed on Wednesday that the actress will play mafia man John Gotti Jr.”s wife, Kim Gotti, in a two-movie deal. In addition to “Gotti,” Lohan will also appear in “Mob Story.”
“We”re very pleased to have Lindsay on-board for both of these films,” executive producer Marc Fiore said in a statement to UsMagazine. “She has been very enthusiastic about the Gotti project, and after resuming discussions with her, we were impressed by her commitment to the film and felt she would be a perfect Kim Gotti.”
Lohan was previously in discussions to play Victoria Gotti, but talks eventually broke down between her management team and the producers. Fiore even announced earlier in the day that negotiations with Lohan had ended and she would not be appearing in the film.
But Lohan patched things up and officially joined the cast. “I”m really excited to be back on set and clear up all the misinterpretations about me and show this is what I love to do,” Lohan told the Associated Press. “I think it”s such an iconic story. I”m honored to be working with John Travolta and Joe Pesci.”
