Travolta Accepts Gotti Role -- Finally; But What About Kim and James?

Who will play the Junior Don?
John Travolta, after much speculation in the press, has agreed to portray John Gotti (Senior) in the Fiore Films biopic, "Gotti: Three Generations," according to a Variety article by Dave McNary,

But whether Kim Kardashian will play Gotti daughter-in-law Kim Gotti or James Franco will play Junior Gotti has not been addressed.

Travolta, John Gotti Jr., director Nick Cassavetes and Fiore Films producer Marc Fiore unveiled the news today and said there will be a press conference in New York on April 12.

Travolta has been rumored to be the leading candidate for one of the lead parts for several months. Actor-writer Leo Rossi wrote the screenplay, "described as revealing the relationship of a father who lived and died by the mob code and a son who chose to leave that world behind and redeem himself," according to the article.

So who is the third generation Gotti named in the film's title?

The film will be shot entirely in New York. Marty Ingels is an exec producer.

Fiore announced the project this fall after securing the rights to Gotti's story (Daily Variety, Sept. 22).

There has been no word about speculation that "Kardashian is on the verge of scoring the role ... as John Gotti's daughter-in-law in the new biopic about the mafioso's life," TMZ reported.

Kim met with executive producers on the film to discuss the possibility of playing Kim Gotti in the movie, producers told the website.

Franco's name has repeatedly been mentioned as the actor who will play Junior, though no confirmation has been reported.
