Barry Levinson - Gotti Film Bosses Confirm Barry Levinson Reports

The producers of the much-publicised Gotti family biopic have confirmed reports suggesting Rain Man director Barry Levinson has signed on to helm their star-studded film.
Fiore Films boss Marc Fiore reveals Levinson will replace Nick Cassavetes, who quit the project last month (Apr11).
Levinson will direct John Travolta, Joe Pesci and Lindsay Lohan in Gotti: Three Generations.
In making the official announcement on Tuesday (03May11), Fiore tells WENN, "Barry Levinson is one of the most pre-eminent directors of our generation. Barry has been a driving force in filmmaking for the past 35 years and has directed some of the most memorable movies of our time."
The filmmaker adds, "What really attracted me to the story was that it was from the perspective of John Gotti Jr. You see an insider's look that I haven't seen told before."
