X17 EXCLUSIVE - Lindsay Lohan In Victoria Gotti Role NOT A Done Deal, Producer Says

Posted on Fri Apr 8, 2011 12:30 PM PDT

lilopicglassesredo230.jpgAlthough reports claim Lindsay Lohan is close to signing on as Victoria in the upcoming movie Gotti: Three Generations, executive producer Marc Fiore says "99% of the casting rumors are false."

Fiore tells X17online exclusively:

    "I will be announcing the cast of our Gotti film on April 12. You'll see that many of the names supposedly connected to the film are not involved. I also want to clear up that Victoria Gotti is not a producer on the film, and for that reason, she has no say on the production or who is getting cast in various roles."

As for the film itself, Fiore wouldn't confirm whether Travolta will be playing John Gotti, however the superstar will be present for the big casting announcement next week. Fiore adds:

    "We have the story of the modern day Godfather. This is the first story ever told by the Gotti family themselves. We bought the rights from the family to tell their story. This will be a true and accurate account. Let me tell you, there are some bone-chilling stories to tell."

As for Lindsay, turns out her connection with the Gotti family goes way back to 1989. A family source tells X17online exclusively:

    "Michael and Dina took Lindsay and son Michael Jr. to the San Gennaro festival in 1989 and they ended up sitting at the Gotti's booth. Ever since then the families have been tight."

In case you aren't familiar with the San Gennaro Festival, it's an annual Feast that brings more than one million people to the streets of Little Italy, NYC in the annual salute to the Patron Saint of Naples.

As for Lilo's chances of being cast in the role of Victoria Gotti, find out what our source told us ... after the jump.

The source adds:

    "There's no doubt Lindsay will get the part. Victoria has already hand-picked her. No one can nail that role like Lindsay."

Guess we'll find out on April 12th!
