Lindsay Lohan Pulls Out of ‘Gotti’ Bio Flick
Lindsay Lohan has been unable to reach terms to star as Victoria Gotti in the biopic Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father and won’t star as a member of the notorious crime clan, Celebuzz has learned.
“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,” the 25-year-old actress’ publicist Steve Honig said, in a statement.
The film is slated to star John Travolta and Al Pacino in the lead roles of the Gambino kingpin John Gotti and underboss Aniello John “The Tall Guy” Dellacrose.
“It does not look like an agreement can be made,” Honig added.
“Lindsay’s representatives and film producers were unable to come to an agreement. 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.”
Previously, Mean Girls star Lohan called her casting a huge honor and touted her personal connection to the Gotti family.
“My dad was in jail with the grandfather,” she said, referring to dad Michael’s four-year stretch in prison, where Lohan said the jailbirds “crossed paths.”
It’s not all bad news for LiLo, though: She is currently on set shooting scenes for Liz & Dick, another biopic that follows the life of Liz Taylor and her relationship with Richard Burton, who is played by Grant Bowler.
