Filming hasn't even begun on the John Gotti biopic, but filmmakers want to make sure the final script remains far away from prying eyes, or falling into the wrong hands, so three decoy scripts have been released, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Gotti:In The Shadow Of My Father, starring John Travolta and Chazz Paliminteri is scheduled to begin filming in New York City early next year.

"Fiore Films put out about three decoy scripts after it became apparent people were trying to get the actual Barry Levinson script. Fiore Films circulated dummy scripts after several failed attempts by media and others to get an unauthorized look at the script," a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.

Meanwhile: "Lindsay Lohan is very close to signing her contract. Both sides are very close to reaching an agreement, it will happen," the source reveals.

Travolta will play mob boss, John Gotti, his real life wife, Kelly Preston, will play Victoria Gotti and Al Pacino will reprise the role of Neil Dellacroce, the longtime consigliere to Mafia chieftain Carlo Gambino.

Calls seeking comment to Fiore Films spokesperson Steve Honig weren't immediately returned.
