Hours after he stated, "Maybe if Lindsay calls me up, we can talk about it," Mark Fiore has announced the Mean Girls star has signed on to play Gambino family boss John Gotti's daughter-in-law Kim in the film as part of a two-picture deal.
The role was initially earmarked for reality TV star Kim Kardashian, according to insiders, while Lindsay Lohan was formerly in negotiations to portray John Gotti's daughter Victoria.
As part of the new deal, Lindsay Lohan will also have a starring role in Fiore Films upcoming production of Mob Street, a movie based on a screenplay written by actor Chazz Palminteri.
Mark Fiore tells WENN, "We're very pleased to have Lindsay onboard for both of these films. She has been very enthusiastic about the Gotti project, and, after resuming discussions with her, we were impressed by her commitment to the film and felt she would be a perfect Kim Gotti."
John Travolta will play John Gotti in the film and Joe Pesci will play his right-hand man Angelo Ruggiero.
The project is still without a director after Nick Cassavetes quit the film earlier this week (beg18Apr11), due to a scheduling conflict.
