Lindsay Lohan pulled back into the 'Gotti' movie game
Lohan was taken out of consideration to play Gotti Sr.'s daughter Victoria in "Gotti: Three Generations," executive producer Marc Fiore said Wednesday morning. But only a few hours later, Fiore announced that Lilo was back on board, albeit shifted to the role of John Gotti Sr.'s daughter-in-law Kim Gotti.
Seems Fiore wasn't blowing smoke when he initially said, "She's a wonderful person. Her legal case has nothing to do with it. We just couldn't reach terms." According to TMZ, the disagreements were with Lohan's management team, but the actress got back on the project by reaching out to Fiore personally.
Sounds like a lotta "Gotti" goodwill -- because of course this couldn't be ingenious marketing, could it?
Incidentally, Kim Kardashian's name was originally floated for the Kim Gotti role; despite Lohan's surprising current resemblance to Victoria, a blond, she has in fact rocked darker locks in recent memory.
