The actress is rumored to play Victoria Gotti, whom her mother is friends with, in the film that has 'the most interesting untold story in this country'.

It is now looking more likely that is joining in "Gotti: Three Generations". A press conference was held at Sheraton Hotel New York Hotel and Towers on Tuesday, April 12 where not only Lindsay and people behind the movie came in attendance but also the real Gotti family.

Lindsay's role was not divulged but more than enough hints were thrown that she is playing John Gotti's daughter Victoria. Beside posing with the mob wife at the photo session and looking quite similar, Lohan also said, "I've never portrayed someone that I know in a film, so this would be the first, which is very exciting."

Lindsay reportedly has been Victoria's top choice to play her. "She's good friends with my mom, [Dina Lohan], and I met Mr. Gotti when I was younger too, when I was three, which is really funny," she told reporters. Giving out more hints, she opined on Victoria, "I like that Victoria, she's a very strong woman and I really appreciate and respect that."

Nevertheless, producer Marc Fiore emphasized, "I'm in talks to have Lindsay in the movie. Nothing has been finalized, but we are in talks."

Director Nick Cassavetes said the story will span several decades, from the time John Gotti became the head of the Gambinos to his death while serving time in prison in 2002. Shooting will begin in October for 2012 release, but the role of Gotti Jr. is not yet filled.

John Travolta himself is thrilled to play the Mafia. "I like the glamor that he has, I like the humor, he entertained the press very well. He charmed them and he charmed his fans. There was mystery about what he was up to," he said.
