Al Pacino, the Academy Award winning actor, has joined the cast of crime movie 'Gotti: Three Generations', according to the Washington Post. Al Pacino will play the Gambino crime family underboss 'Neil Dellacroce', an associate and mentor to John Travolta's 'John Gotti Sr'.
The movie will reunite Pacino with director Barry Levinson, who was behind the camera for last year's television movie 'You Don't Know Jack'. Levinson also produced the 1997 crime drama 'Donnie Brasco' and co-wrote 'And Justice For All'. The cast of 'Gotti' also includes Joe Pesci, Kelly Preston, Lindsay Lohan and Ella Blue Travolta. Fiore Films Ceo Mark Fiore said, "Al Pacino is one of the finest actors of all time and will bring an unsurpassed level of reality and excitement to the film". The acquisition of Pacino leaves 'Gotti Jr' as the only major role left to be cast, but Fiore refused to provide any potential names, saying, "My guess is it's going to be someone that we may not really know. I only say that because I don't know now who's out there as a name where you say, 'Oh, yeah, he could be Gotti Jr'".
Al Pacino has also been confirmed to star in the Giuseppe Tornatore movie 'Leningrad' about the epic battle of World War II that saw the Russians fighting to defend the birthplace of the revolution. The film has been penned by the award winning filmmaker SERGIO LEONE.
