Here’s an update on the project from the actress herself:

So as well as doing a bit in the new film, »

Focusing on the life of violent gangster John Gotti, the project has been in several states over the past year (at one point troubled star Lindsay Lohan was said to have joined the cast). However, what we do know is that John Travolta will definitely play Gotti, with him describing it as ‘a long time coming’:
“I’m looking forward to portraying John Gotti – it’s been a long time coming. And I think that Johnson is an exciting and fresh addition to the vision of the film. We are all looking forward to starting production.”
Johnson has said:
“I think we’ve always been fascinated with the idea of the romantic outlaw. John Gotti could be in one instance a charismatic, kind and loving family man, and in another, »

With Iron Man 3 set to launch Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in just a few short weeks, we've been inundated lately with promotional material for Robert Downey Jr.'s third solo adventure, but of course Marvel Studios has plenty of other movies on its upcoming slate, including a trio of sequels in Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Avengers 2.
