We hope this doesn’t earn us a severed horse head in our bed (we just got new sheets from Ikea) but up until today we thought Linday Lohan’s Gotti: Three Generations movie was sort of…not going to happen. No offense to Lilo! It’s just that after months of hearing about how she was going to play Deep Throat‘s Linda Lovelace or Sharon Tate, we’ve learn not to get our hopes up that any film Lindsay is attached to will every actually get to see the light of day. Now that Al Pacino’s Gotti biopic role is confirmed, however, we’re going to have to reconsider our assumption that Lindsay’s involvement is the kiss of death.
Pacino will play Gambino crime boss Neil Dellacroce, joining Lohan, John Travolta, Joe Pesci and Kelly Preston in the gangster flick. The movie is set to starting filming in early 2012, and we can only hope it’ll be less of a mess than Lohan’s more recent projects such as I Know Who Killed Me. Unless Lindsay drops out, then the movie will immediately win Best Picture in 2013.
