Los Angeles: Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan will now play John Travolta's wife in the John Gotti bio-pic after she was dropped by the producer to cast her as the late mobster's daughter.

The 24-year-old will now play Kim Gotti, the wife of John Gotti Jr, after she personally called producer Marc Fiore to thrash out a deal.

"She was definitely out as of earlier today, but she really wanted the part. She not only is back in the movie, but she single-handedly put it all together. She called me personally and put her team on it and we came to an agreement," said Marc Fiore, producer of 'Gotti: Three Generations' about the late New York mafia boss, John Gotti and his family.

Ealier, Fiore spoke out to say Lohan was no long appearing in the project starring Travolta as John Gotti.

"We are not talking any further about Lindsay playing Victoria. She is no longer being considered. The talks have stopped. We are going to meet with other people," he had said
just hours ago.
