Although Kelly Preston recently gave birth to a new son, that still doesn’t change the fact that she’s a complete Scientology whackjob. Further, she’s a whackjob who can’t seem to land any new acting roles on her own and without the help of husband John Travolta, with whom she’s appeared in the last few years in both Old Dogs and From Paris with Love (in the very prestigious uncredited role of “Woman on Eiffel tower”). Now, she’s joined John again (as well as cracked-out Linnocent) to play his onscreen wife:
The upcoming John Gotti biopic is becoming a real family affair.
Actress Kelly Preston has been cast to play the Dapper Don’s wife Victoria DiGiorgio, opposite her real life husband John Travolta.
And the couple’s 11-year-old daughter Ella Bleu will play their on-screen daughter Angel.
“We’re really excited to have Kelly on board. We are friends with the Travoltas, and they have great chemistry. It will be great onscreen. It’s a very tender relationship in the screenplay,” producer Marc Fiore told the Daily News.
The Travolta clan will be joined by 12-stepping starlet Lindsay Lohan who’s set to play Kim Gotti, the wife of mob scion John (Junior) Gotti.
“I think she’s going to rock the part. She’s going to impress a lot of people,” Fiore said of Lohan, who is embroiled in a jewelry theft case.
Producers have yet to cast the roles of John Jr. and his blonde bombshell sister, Victoria.
The flick, titled Gotti: Three Generations, is slated to begin filming in New York in January and hit theaters in late 2012.

Other than Travolta (who isn’t all that lately himself), this entire cast is shaping up to be one hell of a joke, and now John and Kelly are dragging Ella Bleu in the “family business” too. Honestly, this movie seems better suited for a Lifetime release than in actual theaters, right? It would have been more interesting if the script wasn’t entirely Gotti approved, but now it’s pretty obvious that the whole family story will be completely whitewashed and ultimately uninteresting too.
