Actress Lindsay Lohan, who has garnered her share of media attention for her off-screen antics, becomes the latest big name to join the cast in the movie biopic on the Gotti family, the Associated Press reports.

AP reports that Lohan will play the wife of mobster John Gotti Jr. in the film “Gotti: Three Generations.” John Travolta will play John Gotti Sr. and Joe Pesci will play a Gotti deputy.

Lohan told AP she was honored to join the cast.

“I’m really excited to be back on set and clear up all the misinterpretations about me and show this is what I love to do,” Lohan told AP.

New Gotti Film to Star John Travolta and Joe Pesci

It all seems a little surreal. But it’s real.

The New York Post reports that a new “biopic” film on the Gotti family —  “Gotti: Three Generations” —  will star John Travolta, and none other than actor Joe Pesci. Filming is set to begin in October.

Pesci became legendary for his role in “Goodfellas” and was most remembered for the restaurant scene in which he turns to actor Ray Liotta and says: “What do you mean I’m funny? ….You mean, let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it’s me, I’m a little f–ked up maybe, but I’m funny how, I mean funny like I’m a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I’m here to f–kin’ amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how?

The Post reported that the Gotti  film may also include actress Lindsay Lohan.

Travolta will play the Godfather, John Gotti.

“This is probably the most interesting untold story in this country,” Travolta said, according to the Post.

The Post reported that the screenplay is being written by actor-writer Leo Rossi, who wrote “Analyze This”.

John Gotti died in prison in June 2002 at age 61. His son walked free in December 2009 after  the feds failed to convict him on four tries on racketeering.  Each trial resulted in a deadlocked jury.  Shortly afterward, the feds decided to drop the charges and give up.

Don’t expect to see Brian Thomas Mettenbrink at the next red carpet event for Scientologists Tom Cruise or John Travolta.

Menttenbrink, 20, of Grand Island, Nebraska, pleaded guilty Monday in Los Angeles  federal court  to participating in a ploy to shut down the Church of Scientology websites in January 2008, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Under his plea agreement, he will serve a one year prison sentence.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, “Mettenbrink participated in the attack on the Scientology websites that was orchestrated by a group that labeled itself ‘Anonymous.’”

Authorities said the group led protests against the Church of Scientology at various locations across the country, and in January 2008 announced a new offensive against Scientology.

Mettenbrink admitted downloading computer software from an “Anonymous” message board to bombard Scientology websites with  an inordinate amount of traffic to shut them down, authorities said.

Dmitriy Guzner, of Verona, N.J. was sentenced last year to one year and one day in federal prison for her role in the attacks.
