Lindsay Lohan Fired, Re-Hired on Gotti Film
Around 1 pm on Wednesday, People announced that Lindsay Lohan would no longer be playing Victoria Gotti in the new flick Gotti: Three Generations. Producer Marc Fiore released a statement saying “She is no longer being considered. The talks have stopped. We are going to meet with other people.” He said they just “couldn’t reach terms.”
But before two hours had passed, TMZ broke the news that she’ll be in the film after all. No, Linds won’t be playing Victoria Gotti. Now, she’ll be playing the role of John Gotti Jr.’s daughter-in-law Kim Albanese, daughter of an alleged associate of the Gambino crime family.
TMZ says that Lindsay agreed to act in Mob Street, a different Fiore-produced film, to seal the deal. Linds looks a lot like Victoria Gotti when her red locks are bleached blonde, but she bears marked little resemblance to brunette Kim. Follow the jump to view a few Gotti family pictures.
