If you live an interesting enough life, Hollywood will someday come a'knockin.' If you're John Gotti Jr., son of the infamous mobster John Gotti, you're probably wondering why it took this long.

Variety has the story: director Nick Cassavetes, best known for making the popular romantic weepie 'The Notebook' and being the son of the legendary John Cassavetes, is in talks to bring the story of Gotti Jr. to the screen in a film that will focus on his relationship with his notorious father, who died in 2002 while serving a life sentence for thirteen counts of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, loansharking, racketeering, obstruction of justice, illegal gambling and, because it worked for Al Capone and Mickey Cohen, tax evasion. Leo Rossi, a character actor and occasional screenwriter best known for playing Italian supporting characters in every movie ever made, is writing the script.
