NEW YORK - ‘Rocky’ star Sylvester Stallone apparently wants to portray John A. (Junior) Gotti on the big screen.
The action film star asked about working on a film about the life, times and trials of John A. (Junior) Gotti, said Marc Fiore, CEO of Fiore Films.
“He’s interested,” the New York Daily News quoted Fiore as saying.
Fiore’s production company has a deal with the son of John (Dapper Don) Gotti for a full-length movie.
Shooting is expected to begin in March, with the film expected in theaters next fall.
“During the past 20 years, there have been numerous made-for-television movies, books and other representations about me, my father and our family,” Gotti said in a release.
“None of these projects were done in cooperation with my family, and in most cases did not accurately reflect our lives,” he said.
The Brooklyn-born Fiore said Stallone, star of the “Rocky” and “Rambo” franchises, is among those interested in the movie - as both director and star.he movie has a modest 15dollars million budget. (ANI)
