Update: Lindsay Lohan will be in the John Gotti biopic after all, just not as Victoria Gotti. Variety reports she's now signed to play the wife of John Gotti, Jr.

Marc Fiore, the producer of 'Gotti: Three Generations,' announced earlier today that he had ended negotiations with the troubled actress for the Victoria role.

Fiore reportedly was weary of the various demands of Lohan's camp, telling TMZ, "I will only ride a merry-go-round with my kids." Although he added, "Maybe if Lindsay calls me up, maybe we can talk about it." Hmm, does this mean there were too many middlemen involved?

Evidently, they were able to work things out. For now.
This week also saw the departure of director Nick Cassavetes from the biopic.

Talent already on board: John Travolta, who'll play mobster John Gotti and Joe Pesci, who'll play Gotti associate Angelo Ruggiero. Yet to be cast, John Gotti Jr, who opted to leave the family business.

Production is still expected to begin this fall with a late 2012 release date.
