Lindsay Lohan Joins, Then Leaves, Then Rejoins Gotti Biopic

What are we to make of the project Gotti: Three Generations? Producer Marc Fiore held a press conference for the Gotti family biopic this month with director Nick Cassavetes and stars John Travolta and Lindsay Lohan in attendance, but shortly after, Cassavetes dropped out, and today, Fiore told TMZ that he had ceased negotiations with Lohan to play Victoria Gotti because "I will only ride a merry-go-round with my kids." Apparently, that oddly carnival-themed public shaming worked wonders, because Fiore rang TMZ up hours later to say that Lohan was back onboard, but this time she'll play "John Gotti Jr.'s daughter-in-law Kim — the role once considered for Kim Kardashian." Oh, so it's gonna be like that, then. [TMZ]
