    Despite Starry Cast, ‘Gotti: In The Shadow Of My Father’ Now On Hold Due To Lack Of Cash

    Look at that picture above, so full of hope and promise, but also a good indication early on of a project that always seemed too good to be true. That snap was taken at a press conference this spring formally announcing "Gotti: Three Generations" (later retitled to "Gotti: In The Shadow Of My Father") and yes, that's Lindsay Lohan. And surprise, surprise she didn't end up getting a role in the picture, but it was a pretty good way to drum up publicity for the movie. But that wasn't the only hurdle the film faced. Original director Nick Cassavetes bailed only to be replaced by Barry Levinson. But the real indication something must have been up...

    Joe Pesci Files Lawsuit Against Producers Of ‘Gotti’ Over Weight Gain, Role Switch & Reduced Pay

    We've always been a little skeptical about the gestating "Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father" if only because the producers, Fiore Films, have somewhat improbably lined up a cast that includes John Travolta, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci despite the fact their only other produced film to date is this. Where were they getting the kind of scratch to get this big stars into play? How would the filmmakers whose only movie thus far is straight-to-video National Lampoon's comedy manage to make something solid of a film about one of the most notorious gangsters of our generation? Why did they use Lindsay Lohan to drum up press for the film by pretending th...

    Al Pacino and Barry Levinson Reteaming To Adapt Philip Roth Novel 'The Humbling'

    Levinson Talks Prospect Of Helming Mob Epic 'Gotti: Three Generations'For someone who's almost incontestably one of the greatest living American novelists (there will always be naysayers...) Philip Roth has never fared well on the big screen. "Goodbye, Columbus is mostly forgotten, but fairly decent, but "Portnoy's Complaint," "The Human Stain" and "Elegy" (an adaptation of "The Dying Animal") were all disasters of varying degrees, despite excellent source material. But Hollywood ain't done with Roth yet, with news breaking that a veteran director and star, fresh off a recent success together, are joining forces again to adapt a recent work f...

    Al Pacino Reteams With Barry Levinson For 'Gotti: Three Generations'; James Toback To Rewrite Script

    Ok, we have to admit, the indie gangster biopic "Gotti: Three Generations" always seemed more like an expensive publicity stunt than an actual movie to us, but full respect to Fiore Films, they now have our full attention as there has been some tremendous movement on the picture over the past couple...
