The Hollywood Reporter has it that a director has finally been found for the biopic on American mobster John Gotti in the form of Joe Johnston.

Johnston's most recent works have included "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "The Wolfman".

"Gotti" will be based on the recollections of John Gotti's son, and will star John Travolta("Savages"), Al Pacino ("Stand Up Guys"), Joe Pesci("Love Ranch"), Lindsay Lohan ("Machete"), Kelly Preston("Casino Jack"), Ben Foster("Ain't Them Bodies Saints"), and Chazz Palminteri("The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure").

John Gotti was the boss of the Gambino crime family in New York City. He was referred to as "The Teflon Don" because it seemed to be impossible to get charges to "stick" to him.
