What's the best thing to do if you're "in talks" and facing jail in a week? Dina arranged for Lindsay to barge into the press conference (even though she isn't signed on for the film).

Lindsay Lohan Shows Up at "Gotti" Press Conference, Fuels Casting Rumors

Lindsay Lohan showed up unexpectedly at the press conference for "Gotti: Three Generations" in NYC

By Eric Alt and Scott Ross
Lindsay Lohan, who was rumored to be the lead candidate to play Victoria Gotti alongside John Travolta as John Gotti in the upcoming film "Gotti: Three Generations," showed up at a "Gotti" press conference in Manhattan early this morning. Her appearance naturally lent credibility to the casting rumors.

"Lindsay is a terrific actress," said Marc Fiore, who is producing "Three Generations." "Nothing has been finalized, but we are definitely in talks."

"I know first hand that Lindsay Lohan happens to be a big fan of mine," Travolta added. "I've always thought she was gorgeous and talented and filled with a lot of depth. So, I think that whatever she would like to do would be great with me."

The press conference, which is took place at the Sheraton Hotel on Seventh Avenue, also confirmed that veteran actor Joe Pesci ("Goodfellas") has been cast in the film as Gambino family member Angelo Ruggiero.

A few months ago, Travolta met with Gotti's son, "Junior" Gotti, to discuss the lead role and agreed to add it to a resume that includes roles as Vinny Barbarino, Tony Manero and Chili Palmer.

"Travolta is the guy," Fiore, an ex-con and aspiring film producer who has been working with the mafia scion told the New York Post.

"This is probably the most interesting untold story in this country, and what a character to approach and understand,"Travolta said during the press conference.

Nick Cassavetes will direct the film, and he'll be working from a script by writer/actor Leo Rossi. Cassavetes is the son of late actor and pioneering indie film director John Cassavetes.

Travolta, Gotti and a host of hangers-on and Hollywood types met at an LA restaurant to talk about the project, and Travolta reportedly agreed to bring Gotti, who died in prison in 2002, back to life. Travolta, 56, could be joined by Oscar nominee James Franco, who is under consideration to play Junior, according to Fiore.

Gotti, whose double-breasted suits and ubiquitous diamond studded watch earned him the nickname "The Dapper Don," was convicted of 13 murders and a long list of other crimes in 1992.

Junior Gotti, 46, sold the rights to his screenplay to Fiore last year. The Gambino leader's son was himself tried four times since 2005 for racketeering, with each trial ending in a hung jury. He was released from prison in December, 2009, after serving nine years in a previous racketeering case. He has said he left organized crime in 1999.

"This is not a movie; this is part of American history. We have the exclusive story for first time ever told by John Gotti Junior and his family," Fiore said. Fiore's website says the movie will have a budget of $15 million.

Last year, in a rare interview with The Associated Press, Gotti said he would be very involved with the making of the film.

"It's going to be filmed in New York, I've been working on it in New York, we can be an active player in the situation from start to finish," Gotti said. "They were willing to hear my thoughts and they assured me the script would be absolutely accurate, the script would be fair.

"This is not a mob story. That's one misconception," he continued. "This is a father-son story."

Travolta also confirmed that there will be a small role in the movie for his 11 year-old daughter Ella Bleu.

Nope


US actress Lindsay Lohan attends a press conference by Fiore Films to announce the signing of actor John Travolta to star in the feature film, ‚€œGotti: Three Generations‚€Ě in New York, April 12, 2011. Fiore Film announced also that they were in advanced talks to sign Lindsay Lohan to star in the film, based on the life of John Gotti, Jr. and his relationship with his father, mob boss John Gotti, which will be shot entirely on location in New York. At R is a Gotti family member. AFP PHOTO/Emmanuel Dunand (Photo credit should read EMMANUEL DUNAND/AFP/Getty Images)

and sadly, neither are these:

The last photo reminds me of an ep. of Celebrity Deathmatch where one contestant's implants migrated to her palms, allowing her to use them as silicon boxing gloves.

I don't know- I saw part of the press conference on E! and it sure looked to me like Lindsay was supposed to be there- no one was making any effort to exclude her...It IS great extra publicity for the film, and if (when) she is in jail or messed up again it won't matter anyway, they will just cast someone else (IMDB says it is scheduled for 2013!!) so why not get the extra press for free!
For those of you who were lucky enough to miss it- you can see how Lindsay would be perfect for the role- Lindsay and Dina must have been in heaven, able to hang out with real Long Island Royalty!! (I wonder if the film will detail Victoria's marriage to an abusive mini-mobster who produced these charming young men...)

^That grey onesie thingy she's wearing is just awful .... might be the worst I've ever seen.

If LiLoser gets the part, maybe her and Travolta can play dress up -- he can give her some women's clothing tips.

Dina Lohan was all smiles standing next to Carvel Ice Cream's mascot Fudgie the Whale while the two were promoting ProticaCares healthy eating program in Long Island.
The healthy program has been created to teach kids the importance of balancing a healthy diet while occasionally enjoying sweet treats ... like Carvel Ice Cream.
Dina Lohan, a longtime fan of Carvel, was on hand at Long Island Elementary School to kick off the program. Carvel Ice Cream has agreed to send a variety of their tasty cakes to a different children's hospital or U.S. grade schools every week for the next 75 years.
ProticaCares released the following statement:
"2010 was a very good year for Protica, so I wanted to do something that speaks to the mission of the company – to enhance life through nutrition – and do it in a way that teaches our children about healthy diets and lifestyles."
In our interview with Lindsay's mom, she talks about bad eating habits ... like eating too much fast food. Dina tells X17online exclusively:
"My kids eat it. They drive me once a week, and I'm like, you can't eat this. Even those establishments are making healthy choices for kids, at those fast food places, but it's really important to exercise and good health ... and just being aware."

^ Dina and Fudgie?? How can that be?? The picture must be doctored; the Fudgies are the ones who started all of the Lohan's problems- Lindsay was just a fun loving girl who worked very hard and liked to go out with her friends and listen to music before Fudgie plotted revenge against Dina, as you may recall.... Jeeze- next thing you know the Lohan's will be hanging out with 'alleged' members of organize crime and trying to revive a career by glorifying the family life of a narcissistic cold blooded killer... (Oh yeah, they are already doing that too...)

In a certain weird way, I guess you can't blame Lindsay and her crew (that's a big Mob term btw, so we should start using it now that they are officially associated with the 'right people', capisce??) are so delusional; I mean there are constant press releases about the movies she is doing when none of them are really in production, half of them have nothing like the backing, distribution, casts and so on the actual films have, and, just as a small detail- She may well be in jail for many months to come and most sane financial people wouldn't put five cents behind her ability to stay straight and out of trouble for the next several months!! Jeeze- they announce their fanciful ideas/plans almost as if they are ready to start filming and make no distinction about what the difference is!

Marilyn Manson & Lindsay Lohan -- Possible Co-Stars


4/15/2011 by TMZ Staff

Who'da thunk -- Marilyn Manson wants a part in a movie that could soon be starring Lindsay Lohan ... TMZ has learned ... a biopic about infamous psychopath Charles Manson.

Sources connected with the movie tell us, Marilyn approached director Tyler Shields about playing Charles Manson's right-hand man Tex Watson ... who was convicted of several Manson murders, including the death of Sharon Tate.

As we first reported, producers are currently considering Lindsay for the role of Sharon ... but Lindsay hasn't officially signed on just yet.

According to sources, producers "love the idea" of casting Marilyn as Tex ... and are seriously considering the proposition.

Another step toward Lilo getting off- again!! I always thought it was the retail value that mattered- like if you steal a car do you say it is not worth $30k because it only cost $10k to manufacture??? I guess common sense plays no part in these things...

Lindsay Lohan -- Attempted Retail Robbery Victim

Lindsay Lohan faces grand theft felony charges for a necklace that we found out was marked up 300%!!!

TMZ has learned the necklace designer sold Kamofie & Co. the piece for $850 -- that price tag does not qualify for felony grand theft, which requires a value of $950 or more.

Kamofie was trying to sell the necklace to Lindsay for $2,500 bucks.

As we first reported, we're told Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley, will argue the D.A. should only be allowed to charge her client with a misdemeanor because of the value of the necklace.

But even if Holley loses that argument, Kamofie's owner -- who we're told will be testifying at Lindsay's preliminary hearing -- is going to have a PR problem for the mark-up and for selling the surveillance video and shopping a book deal.

Whether Lindsay Lohan will star in the upcoming movie Gotti: Three Generations hasn't been confirmed, but the 24-year-old starlet is happy to chat about her long history with the infamous family.
While partying with her brother Michael at Beauty & Essex, Lilo tells Page Six, "My dad was in jail with the grandfather."
Lindsay is referring to her dad Michael spending time in the slammer back in the 90's with Victoria Gotti's dad, John Gotti. What a small world.
Lilo also told Page Six about her "family connection" with the Gottis, and how she's known them since she was three years old.
Find out what someone in Lilo's group reportedly said after a passerby compared Linds to Victoria Gotti ... after the jump.
When a passerby told Lindsay she looks like Victoria Gotti, Page Six says someone in her group replied, "Yeah, a younger, prettier version."
