Lindsay Lohan

HANDPICKED

By Victoria Gotti

4/8/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan beat out Blake Lively AND Sienna Miller for her new role as Victoria Gotti -- and TMZ has learned ... Victoria herself made sure that happened.

Sources close to the production tell TMZ, producers were considering both Blake and Sienna for the role -- but John Gotti's famously blonde daughter wasn't having it, insisting Lindsay get the role instead ... and producers loved the idea.

Not all that surprising -- according to sources, Victoria is a good friend of the Lohan family ... and she often spends time with them on Long Island.

Meanwhile, Lindsay is currently in L.A. auditioning for "Superman" -- but we're told she already has a plane ticket back to NYC for April 12th ... to close the Gotti deal for good.

Dear Mr. Fiore,

I am excited to hear about the John Gotti biopic starring John Travolta especially after hearing that Lindsay Lohan is in the running to play the part of Victoria Gotti. I know tons of people who admire and adore this woman and are very strongly hoping this is not just a rumor. Lindsay has a large and devoted following, to the extent that many of her adoring fans will likely recommend this movie to people who otherwise might not have an interest in seeing a movie about gangsters.

Lindsay is a huge talent possessing magical charisma and her participation in this film project will greatly enhance its appeal.

Sincerely,

actually lou, don't know where you got that i was being smug. i have no idea if it's true or not and i have no idea if tmz has good sources on this or not. i hope it is. i'm only posting what i've seen about the movie.

all i'm saying is on april 12th, one way or the other we will know whether lindsay is in this movie or not.

she was in new york recently and she was pictured at a casting agents office yesterday so she is at least auditioning or meeting with agents.

Good!!! Lindsey needs to go back to work. Just work & stay out of the club. Exercise & do more productive things. Get back to work Lindsey & do what you do. She is a pretty talented girl. She just needs to get it together. People are Super attacking her way to much. She just lost her way in life & needs to find it again. Do not Judge unless you want to Judge yourself first.

Straight to DVD, no doubt in my mind. Or it will earn around $7 million like "I Know Who Killed Me!" Lmao.

When MTV News reached out for comment, a representative for the film said he "can't confirm nor deny that Lindsay is in discussions."

Come on. Whether LiLoser is in this movie or not (Won't happen), John Gotti was a flake of a mob boss of La Cosa Nostra. Not worth making a movie of his life.

this is actually true. I know a few people that were there for john,before and after..he was a terrible boss, he wanted fame and in our thing the camera is worse then a gun, so john had to go. the only reason they are trying to make a "gotti" movie is because he is the only boss dumb enough to put himself in the spotlight.think about it.. how many movies star the story of carmine or paul or lucky for that matter.. john and sammy were second rate wise guys and thats why john was popped and sammy snitched. also why is the daughter even a big deal in this movie? she as barely old enough to even know what was going on until he was in jail, so how is this even more then a few minutes in the entire movie?? they did a gotti movie already and it actually wasnt bad.. our thing wll never be portrayed in full as anyone that actually knows what happens and how it happens has to much respect to open their mouths. juniour is a decent man but there is no such thing as la famigla anymore, today it is business with many different races involved(russian,asian,etc) so again i say, why would junior want to shed light into what he is trying to do, the movie is a great idea but only because hes is the only boss who made his life public, other then capone, but he ran police forces. the fact that vicky even has a say in this is retarded. she wasnt there,wasnt involved and is just trying to save her own ass at the expense of her father..just sad.. junior should know better then to have more negative attention drawn upon himself after his trial... Ive been there for better..before and after..

Dear Mr. Fiore,

I am excited to hear about the John Gotti biopic starring John Travolta especially after hearing that Lindsay Lohan is no longer in the running to play the part of Victoria Gotti. I know tons of people who neither admire nor adore this woman and are very strongly hoping this is just a rumor. Lindsay has a large and devoted following of transients, due in large part to her falling face-first in the urine-soaked street they call home. Had Lindsay not licked up their man seed, they might not have any interest whatsoever in seeing a movie about gangsters.

Lindsay is talentless, possessing no charisma and her lack of participation in this film project will greatly enhance its appeal.

Sincerely,

Grandma Cracker gets my vote. Sounds like she looks a bit like Victoria and could easily act circles around LieLo.

SNAFU    

What with the American fascination with all things criminal? What about the families of the people that were murdered by Gotti and his minions? John Gotti and his like are a burden on society and nothing more, and they shouldn't be glorified by the media or entertainment industry.
