Barry Levinson On Board Mafia Don Project

Written by: FFT Webmaster | May 4th, 2011

Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson (RAIN MAN) has all but confirmed that he will direct an upcoming biopic about Mafia mobster John Gotti. The original director of the project Nick Cassavetes is apparently out and Levinson is apparently in. John Travolta is signed to star as the Dapper Don, with Joe Pesci (no stranger to this milieu) and Lindsay Lohan set to co-star. Actor-writer Leo Rossi has written the screenplay and production should begin this summer.
