Lohan won’t star in Gotti but Travolta still in
07 June 2012

Bisexual actress Lindsay Lohan has pulled out of negotiations to appear in new biopic Gotti.

The troubled US star – who is currently filming TV movie Liz & Dick, in which she plays late actress Dame Elizabeth Taylor – had been linked to a role in the film about mobster John Gotti but her representatives couldn’t reach an agreement with the filmmakers.

Her publicist Steve Honig told RadarOnline.com: ‘I can confirm that Lindsay has not signed on to be a part of the John Gotti movie, nor is she in talks to join the cast.

‘It does not look like an agreement can be made. Lindsay’s representatives and film producers were unable to come to an agreement. Lindsay has the utmost respect for Barry Levinson [the director of the movie] and the producers and hopes to work with them in the future and wishes them all the best.’

Meanwhile, Gotti star John Travolta has been rocked by a string of apparently unfounded sexual accusations from male masseurs.

More recently Travolta’s former secretary, Joan Edwards, who worked for him from 1978 to 1994 told the National Enquirer gossip magazine that the Hollywood actor had a six year relationship with pilot Doug Gotterba.

But Gotti insiders insist the allegations haven’t harmed the film or affected their confidence in him

A representative for the movie said: ‘The producers of the Gotti film, as well as the Gotti family, fully support John Travolta 110% and the allegations that have surfaced against him haven’t harmed the project in any way, shape or form.

‘I can’t be more clear about this, this does not impact the film in any way, shape or form. Filming is scheduled to begin later this year and we will be making an announcement shortly about distribution for the movie. It’s a very exciting time and we are all looking forward to filming beginning.’
