EW: Gotti Film Retitled

Gotti: Three Generations has undergone a slight makeover: The film, which stars John Travolta and is set to be directed by Barry Levinson, will now be titled Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father, a rep for the movie confirms to EW. Gotti centers on three generations of the infamous Gotti crime family, and boasts a big-name cast. Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Lindsay Lohan, and Travolta’s wife Kelly Preston join  the Pulp Fiction actor in the film, which will be written by Levinson and James Toback (Bugsy).

Edit. Note: Both titles stink... We are, however, impressed with the announced cast...


  1. bugsy was a giant, a visionary, a mans man.He left behind a city.
    Jr. is a mutt and johnny boy a loud mouth bully. good luck to barrv selling those two creeps

  2. Bugsy was the only warrior in the group of Luciano, Costello, and Lansky. It was him, along with his crew of Lower East Side Jews, led by Red Levine, who murdered Masseria and Maranzano, to make Luciano boss (the rule was that you could not kill your boss and become boss). When Luciano double crossed him and set up an organization where only Italians could be members (Jimmy Blue Eyes was Meyer's liaison), Bugsy set out west to become his own boss. He was forced to go back to the NY guys because he didn't have enough money to build the Flamingo. It was pointed out to me by "Joe Rogers" Stassi, the mob's #1 point man in Havana (see "Havana Nocturne"), that the Flamingo was in the black when he got killed. It had to do with an insulting message he sent back east. Keeping the insult for when I publish my next book, "Sonny Girard's Mob Reader."
