Shortly after a big press conference for the upcoming Gotti: Three Generations, director Nick Cassavetes stepped away from the project. This caused quite a panic in Hollywood but rest assure that this gangster story will be told as a new director has stepped up to the plate.

According to Variety, Barry Levinson (Rain Man, You Don’t Know Jack) has entered negotiations to take over the film, which stars John Travolta. For those unfamiliar with the project, it is the story of the notorious Gotti crime family told from the perspective of John Gotti Jr., who was the one to sell the idea for this film.

Along with Travolta in the title role of John Gotti Sr., the film will also star Joe Pesci as Angelo Ruggiero, a close friend and member of the Gambino crime family and in an attempt to make a comeback, Lindsay Lohan is set to play daughter-in-law, Kim.

It is speculated that production will begin sometime in the fall as John Travolta is set to film Oliver Stone’s Savages over the summer.
