The Mean Girls star was in talks to play John Gotti's wife Kim in the biopic, opposite John Travolta, but negotiations broke down last year (11) and Lohan pulled out of the project completely.

Gotti producer Marc Fiore released a statement on Thursday (07Jun12), suggesting he was still keen on landing Lohan for his film, which starts shooting later this year (12).

He wrote, "Lindsay does not have a contract. But right now, we're not in the phase of doing casting. I still have every intention of speaking to Lindsay about the role of Kim Gotti. There's no truth to Lindsay being out of the film."

But her rep Steve Honig begs to differ.

He states, "I can confirm that Lindsay has not signed on to be a part of the John Gotti movie, nor is she in talks to join the cast. It does not look like an agreement can be made. Lindsay's representatives and film producers were unable to come to an agreement."

He adds, "Lindsay has the utmost respect for (director) Barry Levinson and the producers and hopes to work with them in the future and wishes them all the best."

Lohan is currently portraying Elizabeth Taylor in TV biopic Liz & Dick, about the late movie icon's turbulent romance with Welsh acting great Richard Burton.
