Earlier news on the Gotti movie had Lindsey Lohan back on the roster for the film and finally in a solid role. She was officially slated to play Victoria Gotti, John Gotti Jr.’s wife. This week, it’s Kelly Preston’s time to shine as news of her casting as the role of John Gotti Sr.’s wife, Victoria DiGiorgio, hits the internet. The man filling Gotti’s shoes? None other than her own husband, John Travolta.
Those in charge of casting laud Preston’s acting ability. She seems perfect for the role of loving and passionate wife and should play off of John extremely well. One more thing Preston and DiGiorgio have in common is that they both lost a son at a very early age—a tragedy that will be explored in the film. The couple should be a very dynamic pair on the silver screen.
There is still much more casting to be done for the Gotti film. For the latest buzz on the film, head over to the Superficial.
