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???

Lindsay Opens Up About Gotti Casting!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanFilm Flickers

We're so thrilled that this ended up working out for her! Gurl is getting herself on the right track!

Although Lindsay Lohan did not end up being cast as Victoria Gotti in the upcoming film based on mob boss John Gotti's family, Gotti: Three Generations, she was confirmed for the role of John Gotti Jr.'s wife, Kim, yesterday, and is already speaking out about her first acting gig since Robert Rodriguez's Machete!

She explains:

"I'm really excited to be back on set and clear up all the misinterpretations about me and show this is what I love to do. I think it's such an iconic story. I think it's a great story to be told. I'm honored to be working with John Travolta and Joe Pesci. [In mob films] You don't get to see the heart behind the story and the real side of people. I can relate to that because I think that I've been portrayed in a certain light. I just want to do my best to show what their family really went through. I think in the past, I had a lot of distraction. I've learned a lot. I've lived a lot. When I'm on set, it's about the film."

That's EXACTLY the attitude we want to be hearing, gurl! No nonsense!

And producer Marc Fiore, who has also cast the formerly hard-pAArtying actress in another film called Mob Street, elaborates:

"We're very pleased to have Lindsay on-board for both of these films. She has been very enthusiastic about the Gotti project, and after resuming discussions with her, we were impressed by her commitment to the film and felt she would be the perfect Kim Gotti."

Wow! It's all happening so fast!

Here's hoping that this is the comeback for which we've all had our fingers crossed! All the bull shiz aside, LiLo is one talented actress, and we think that if she can stay focused and let all of this legal nonsense stay in the past, she may very well have a chance at getting her life, and career, back together!

Best of luck!

Lindsay WILL Be In Gotti Film

lindsay-lohan-will-be-in-gotti-movie.jpg

What a difference 24 hours makes.

After yesterday's news that Lindsay Lohan was dropped from the upcoming Gotti: Three Generations film, it turns out that Lindsay was so desperate to be in the movie, she actually worked her Lohan magic and got back on the film.

There weren't exact details given why Linds was dropped in the first place, but it could have something to do with demands that were given by her management.

She will no longer be playing the role of mob boss daughter Victoria Gotti though. She will be John Gotti Jr.'s daughter-in-law Kim, which was once considered for Kim Kardashian.

As part of her negotiations with Fiore, she's also agreed to star in another upcoming film of his called Mob Street.

Good for Lindsay! She took her career in her own hands and fought for what she wanted.

We're proud of you, gurl.

Another Movie Role Bites The Dust! LiLo No Longer Playing Victoria Gotti

Filed under: Lindsay LohanFilm Flickers

lindsay-lohan-no-longer-playing-victoria-gotti.jpg

Lindsay Lohan is officially out of the new Gotti film where she was set to play mob daughter Victoria Gotti.

Producer Marc Fiore says:

"We are not talking any further about Lindsay playing Victoria. She is no longer being considered. The talks have stopped. We are going to meet with other people [for the role]."

While producers won't say exactly why Lindsay is out of the film, Fiore does confirmed that La Lohan's legal troubles had nothing to do with it. He added:

"She a wonderful person. Her legal case has nothing to do with it. We just couldn't reach terms."

This comes as a bit of a shock since Lindsay had attended the film's press conference with Mz. Victoria herself just last week.

Too bad for Lindsay. This is yet another blow for her. We were actually really looking forward to her making her comeback in this role.

Sadsies.

SIGHting

Filed under: Lindsay LohanFilm Flickers

Lindsay Lohan, alongside Victoria Gotti - whom she is in talks to portray in the upcoming crime family's film Gotti: Three Generations - at a press event in New York today.

Producer Marc Fiore was even quoted saying:

"Lindsay is a terrific actress. Nothing has been finalized, but we are definitely in talks."

And Gotti herself once again had nothing but praise for the actress:

"I think she's incredible. I think she's a great actress. I think she can do … any role, really. I've always said that to her mom [Dina] when we met many years ago. Just watching her in The Parent Trap, I thought was adorable and she's a good kid. She had a little bit of a bumpy road recently. I think she's doing great; I think she's going to continue to do great and she's got a lot of people rooting for her."

Yeah - between her appearance at a press event for the film, and Victoria's support, we have a feeling that LiLo will be officially signed on in no time!

Here's hoping that that pesky trial won't mess this up - this is a huge step for her!
