It will be a family affair when filming on Gotti: Three Generations gets underway in New York City this fall.
Actress Kelly Preston, 48, has signed on to play matriarch Victoria Gotti (not to be confused with Growing Up Gotti’s Victoria Gotti…) in the big screen story about Gambino Crime Family gun John Gotti and his brood. Producer Marc Fiore confirmed the scoop on Wednesday, just a few weeks after Kelly’s longtime husband, actor John Travolta, was cast as the murderous mobster himself.
The Travoltas welcomed the arrival of their second son together, Benjamin, last December.
Gotti: Three Generations, co-starring Lindsay Lohan (Kim Gotti) and Joe Pesci (Sammy “The Bull” Gravano), is expected in theaters in late 2012. Barry Levinston, who won an Academy Award for directing the 1988 blockbuster Rain Man, replaces Nick Cassavetes as lensman on the project.
