Lindsay Lohan may have a big fat role in Liz and Dick as the iconic Elizabeth Taylor, but she will NOT be a part of the John Gotti biopic starring John Travolta as we maybe thought would eventually happen, reports Radaronline.com. So why the long face? Well, apparently the parties were not able to reach an agreement with producers of the movie.
Steve Honig, Lindsay’s publicist said, “I can confirm that Lindsay has not signed on to be a part of the John Gotti movie, nor is she in talks to join the cast. It does not look like an agreement can be made. Lindsay’s representatives and film producers were unable to come to an agreement. Lindsay has the utmost respect for Barry Levinson [the director of the movie] and the producers and hopes to work with them in the future and wishes them all the best.”
As for whether Travolta’s rumored extramarital affairs have affected production on the flick, the studio says no. They released the following statement, “The producers of the Gotti film, as well as the Gotti family, fully support John Travolta 110 percent and the allegations that have surfaced against him haven’t harmed the project in any way, shape or form. I can’t be more clear about this, this does not impact the film in any way, shape or form. Filming is scheduled to begin later this year and we will be making an announcement shortly about distribution for the movie. It’s a very exciting time and we are all looking forward to filming beginning.”
Without Lindsay Lohan.
