Emmet/Furla/Oasis and director Kevin Connolly have started production on The Life And Death Of John Gotti, and found some actors to play the literal and figurative family around John Travolta’s John Gotti, with Kelly Preston playing his wife, Victoria.
Stacy Keach is playing Neil Dellacroce, the famed underboss for the Gambino family who mentored Gotti; Emmy winner Pruitt Taylor Vince has been set as Gotti enforcer Angelo Ruggeiro; Unbroken’s Spencer Lofranco plays John Gotti Jr.; William DeMeo plays Gotti’s right hand man-turned-FBI informant Sammy Gravano; and Leo Rossi plays Gotti enforcer Bobby Boriello. Tyler Olson and Megan Leonard also star.
E/F/O CEOs Randall Emmett and George Furla are producing. The film is shooting in Cincinnati and Lionsgate Premiere will release it in 2017.
