Lindsay Lohan, in the midst of a career comeback, won’t be a part of the John Gotti biopic starring John Travolta, because her representatives were unable to reach an agreement with producers of the movie, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
LiLo is currently filming the Lifetime TV movie Liz & Dick. The movie details the rocky relationship between iconic actress Elizabeth Taylor and her on-again/off-again lover Richard Burton.
“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,” the Mean Girl‘s publicist, Steve Honig, tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “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, as RadarOnline.com previously reported, media reports that filming of the Gotti biopic has been affected by the negative publicity John Travolta has endured over the masseur sex scandal are not true. Producers of the film and the Gotti family are fully supporting the embattled actor and filming is scheduled to begin later this year.
“The producers of the Gotti film, as well as the Gotti family, fully support John Travolta 110 percent and the allegations that have surfaced against him haven’t harmed the project in any way, shape or form,” a rep for the project told RadarOnline.com last week. “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 begining.”
Meanwhile, Lohan is working hard to put her troubles behind her and to reinvent herself as a hard working, responsible actress.
“Lindsay has a lot of very exciting projects that she is being offered and she is truly committed to getting her life back on track,” a source close to the actress tells RadarOnline.com.
