Travolta visits Gotti widow to research new movie
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - John Travolta visited the widow of mob boss John Gotti to do research for his upcoming movie role as the mafia kingpin.
The New York Post ( http://nyp.st/nh1Ypv) reports that Travolta arrived Thursday at the Gotti home in New York City to meet with widow Victoria Gotti, her son John “Junior” Gotti and other key players.
The Post said the “Pulp Fiction” star was greeted with handshakes and hugs. He brought a gift bag for Victoria Gotti and stayed inside for more than two hours.
All he would say when he emerged was that he was doing research for the movie.
John Gotti died in prison in 2002.
The movie “Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father” is set to start shooting in January. Barry Levinson is directing.
