One of the producers behind Lindsay Lohan's upcoming mobster movie has confirmed the 'talented and beautiful' actress is still onboard the Gotti biopic despite her looming prison sentence.

The "" star recently signed a two-picture agreement with Fiore Films, with her first role starring alongside , and in "Gotti: Three Generations", based on the real-life crime family.

Her involvement had been thrown into doubt after she was sentenced to 120 days behind bars for violating her probation stemming from a 2007 DUI charge. She will begin her jail stint next month, but producer Marc Fiore is adamant Lohan's prison time won't have an impact on her planned work schedule.

He tells reporters at the Cannes Film Festival in France, "Lindsay Lohan is a talented and beautiful actress, she is in the film and will be playing the role of Kim Gotti. She will also be co-starring in our next film, ''."

Lohan broke her probation when she was accused of stealing a necklace from a California jewelery store earlier this year. She pleaded no contest to the charge.
