Oscar-nominated screenwriter James Toback has signed on to rewrite John Travolta's new Gotti family biopic with director Barry Levinson.
The filmmaker and the writer teamed up on Bugsy in 1991; Toback is also the acclaimed director of When Will I Be Loved and documentary Tyson.
Gotti: Three Generations producer Marc Fiore tells WENN, "Everyone involved with the film is very excited to have James Toback onboard. His work with Barry Levinson on Bugsy resulted in a highly acclaimed film that was widely recognised for its original screenplay."
Travolta will play mob boss John Gotti in the film, which will also feature Lindsay Lohan and Joe Pesci.
