Gotti trailer: John Travolta becomes the "Teflon Don"
Mafia boss John Gotti was never one to shy away from the pubic and quickly become one of the most well-known gangsters of the modern age. John Travolta seems like a good fit for the role and aside from appearing in The People v. O. J. Simpson you have to go back over a decade to pick out a performance in a major film. The first trailer for Gotti arrived a short while ago and you can check it out above right now.
The film follows infamous crime boss John Gotti’s (John Travolta) rise to become the “Teflon Don” of the Gambino Crime Family in New York City. Spanning three decades and recounted by his son John Jr. (Spencer Lofranco), GOTTI examines Gotti’s tumultuous life as he and his wife (Kelly Preston) attempt to hold the family together amongst tragedy and multiple prison sentences.
Kevin Connolly is directing, with the cast also featuring Stacy Keach, Pruitt Taylor Vince, William DeMeo, Leo Rossi, and Victor Gojcaj.
Gotti gets a US release in mid-June but no news yet about the UK.
