Lohan in 'Final Talks' to Play Victoria in $75M Gotti Flick

on to play John Gotti's daughter.
Lindsay Lohan's on the verge of signing her first big contract out of rehab -- in fact, we're told the actress is in "final talks" to play John Gotti's daughter Victoria in the upcoming biopic about the mafioso's life, according to Lindsay -- Closing In On Deal for New Gotti Flick, TMZ.com.

"Sources close to the production say producers were considering both Blake Lively and Sienna Miller for the role - but John Gotti's famously blonde daughter wasn't having it, insisting Lindsay get the role instead... and producers loved the idea,” TMZ also reported, according to Music Rooms.

Victoria is reported to be a close friend of Lindsay’s family and is convinced she will do a great job of portraying her in the film, which will see John Travolta play the lead role.

As we previously reported, John Travolta is working out a deal to play Gotti Senior. According to various published sources, the film's budget is surprisingly large: $75 million. Most of it is probably going into Travolta's pockets - we await to see what size check Lindsay gets, if she signs on...

We also await confirmation of speculation that James Franco was going to play Junior and Kim Kardashian, Kim Gotti (which would mean Kim and Lindsay would be playing sisters).

In any event, Junior doesn't even know who James Franco is.

"To be honest, I'm not familliar with James Franco or his work," admitted Junior, being honest, in a Village Voice blog by Michael Musto.

Franco, in this writer's view, is an excellent actor who could probably play anyone on the big screen only in this case he would have to put on A LOT of weight to resemble John Junior. The film's budget is certainly big enough to afford another star or two.
