Al Pacino Signs For ‘Gotti’

Al PacinoAl Pacino has officially joined Gotti: Three Generations, and in turn, is actually making us take this film seriously. He’ll play the Gambino crime family underboss Neil Dellacroce, an “associate and mentor to Gotti Sr.,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. John Travolta is already set to star as John Gotti Sr. and Barry Levinson — who Pacino won Emmys with for their HBO telefilm You Don’t Know Jack — will direct the inevitably critically-acclaimed film. James Toback has also signed on to rewrite the script, originally penned by Leo Rossi. Others cast: Kelly Preston (Travolta’s real-life wife), Ella Bleu Travolta (Travolta’s real-life daughter), Lindsay Lohan (not related to Travolta as far as we know) and of course Joe Pesci because, well, he’s Joe Pesci and this is a mob movie.
