Al Pacino to Help Lindsay Lohan's Career?
Posted 05.10.11 by Chris
The premise: Al Pacino and Lindsay Lohan play father and daughter and through a comedic mishap, they switch bodies.
No, not really, but wouldn't you pay $10.50 to see that?
It was announced today that Pacino was the latest to join the biopic Gotti: Three Generations. Pacino will play Gambino crime family underboss Neil Dellacroce.
Despite Lohan being in the movie, there is a lot of gravitas in the project. In addition to Pacino, Joe Pesci is set to star, along with Kelly Preston and John Travolta. Pesci is said to be playing a "deputy" mobster while Travolta will play Gotti during the 1980s. Preston will play Gotti's wife, Victoria Gotti. Lohan is set to play daughter-in-law Kim Gotti, wife of Gotti Jr. Still need to be cast is the role of Gotti Jr.
The movie will also mark the first time Pacino and Pesci will appear in a movie together (let's cross our fingers and hope they actually share a scene). The two will also appear together in The Irishman, another mob movie that will be directed by Martin Scorsese.The real Gotti Sr. died in 2002 of throat cancer while serving a life sentence.
The movie will be directed by Barry Levinson, who won an Oscar for directing Rain Man.

is expected to be released in 2012
