John Travolta in Talks to Play John Gotti

John Travolta is reportedly "in serious talks" to play New York City mob boss John Gotti in the upcoming biopic Gotti, about three generations of the crime family. The film's producer Marc Fiore is also "finalizing a deal" with Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook) to direct. Of course, "Another big name is being tossed around to play John Jr.: James Franco." And here we almost went a whole day without James Franco news! [Inside Movies/EW]
