Despite many difficulties played out on the web pages of TMZ -- the latest: another round of he said/they said between Joe Pesci and production company Fiore Films -- 'Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father' is still happening, so much so that star John Travolta traveled all the way to Howard Beach in New York on Thursday to meet with John Gotti's widow.
Per the New York Post, Travolta -- who will play John Gotti in the Barry Levinson-directed film -- met with Victoria Gotti a little after 4:30 p.m. on Thursday and stay for almost two-and-a-half hours. No word on whether Gotti gave Travolta her "blessing," but considering son John Gotti Jr. has been involved in the development process from jump street, you'd be right to assume she did.
