Gotti Producer Speaks Out Against Joe Pesci Lawsuit

gotti producers vs joe pesci

Gangster drama continues!

Yesterday, we heard that Joe Pesci was suing the producers of Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father for $3 million and punitive damages.

He was claiming he had a locked deal to play the role of Angelo Ruggiero which required him to end his healthy diet and gain 30 pounds for a pay of $3 million….but he says producers reneged on the deal and offered him a lesser role for only $1 million.

Now, producer Marc Fiore is speaking out against Pesci, and he's insisting that Pesci pulled himself out of the project after director Nick Cassavetes exited the movie last April.

Here's what Fiore had to say about it:

"Before we had a deal, Mr. Pesci walked away. He's wasting his time and everybody else's time. I might be a newbie in town. This newbie is not going to get bulled around."

What'cha have to say about that, Joe???

Danny Devito, Jack Nicholson and Susan Sarandon are amongst Sunday's inductees into the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

The actors joined author Judy Blume, Frankie Valli and Bruce Springsteen for the event.

"He has Jersey attitude pouring out of him, even when he is standing still. (His) persona exemplifies what it means to be one of us," said The Boss about Devito.

The two then sang Glory Days in front of an audience that included Buzz Aldrin and Joe Pesci.

WTF?!

Even Jack was there - and it meant so much to him that he missed a Lakers game to attend!

"I could sing the praises of New Jersey all night," said Nicholson.

Past inductees include Springsteen, Toni Morrison and Harriet Tubman.

And coming soon…Snooki?!
