John Gotti Jr. talking about his late father said, "He made a choice to be something in his life and he stood true to those convictions. He suffered greatly, he paid for every sin he may or may not have committed and that is what I want everybody to understand." He also stated that he wanted audiences to see the pain his father suffered rather than the ruthless, outspoken and charismatic figure he became known as.
The film will be directed by Nick Cassavetes, who said the film will span several decades from the time Gotti rose to fame in the mafia to the time of his death. The film is planned to begin shooting in October.
What do you think about Travolta portraying John Gotti??
