According to sources, the producers of Gotti: Three Generations have released Nick Cassavetes from his contract on Monday, April 18. Now, they are reportedly opening a vacancy for a new director to take up John Gotti biopic, which will be shot entirely in New York and will release in October 2012.
Gotti: Three Generations is a dramedy movie, which reveals the relationship of a father, who lived and died by the mob code and a son who chose to leave the crime world behind and redeem himself and the Gotti name, while brought up to lead a life of crime. John Travolta plays the late mafia John Gotti. His daughter Ella Bleu Travolta has a featured role. Joe Pesci is signed as Angelo Ruggiero and Lindsay Lohan is still in talks for role of Victoria Gotti.
Director Nick Cassavetes, who was earlier roped in to direct the forthcoming movie Gotti: Three Generations, has now walked out of the project. The director was already committed to indie drama 'Yellow'. He was forced to pull out of the project after he faced a scheduling conflict between Yellow and Gotti.
