Lindsay Lohan Mob Movie Gets New Director


For his last movie, the Jack Kevorkian biopic You Don't Know Jack, director Barry Levinson spent two hours chronicling the father of the mercy kill. Now, though, Levinson can be credited with a high-profile resuscitation: He's come aboard to direct the troubled mob movie Gotti: Three Generations, which is set to star John Travolta, Joe Pesci, and, after much sturm and drang, Lindsay Lohan. The Oscar-nominated Levinson will replace Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook) on the project. [Variety]
