But the good news is that the movie is still a GO, even without her!
There were some murmurs last week that the planned Gotti film with John Travolta and Al Pacino had hit a financial snag that it couldn't get out of, thus the movie was being shelved. However, today a rep from Fiore Productions is insisting that the movie is "very much moving forward" and revealed they are "expecting a late 2012 theatrical release."
If that is their plan of attack, then production on the John Gotti biopic must be getting underway soon, but there is one loose end still to tie up. And her name is Lindsay Lohan.
Even after MONTHS of negotiations, it seems La Lohan has still not signed any definitive contract to star in the movie. We don't know what the hold-up is, but if we had to guess, we think it might have something to do with the rest of the publicist's statement on the movie:
"Everyone is still attached to the film. I am not commenting on anything to do with financing though."
And there it is!
Look Lindsay: You're not Joe Pesci. Chances are, you don't have to do anything for this movie except show up. They'll feed you lines, do you're hair while you sleep off pAArtying from the night before. This is bound to be an easy gig for you. So, how's about you take whatever they give you, be grateful someone still wants you in their movie and sign on the dotted line?!
