Sylvester Stallone


The actor is reportedly approaching the son of John Gotti to turn his memories about his strained relationship with his father into a big screen project.

Hollywood tough guy Sylvester Stallone wants to portray notorious Mafia don John Gotti in a movie about the late convict's life. The "Rambo" star is in negotiations with Gotti's son 'Junior' John Gotti to turn his memories about his strained relationship with his father into a big screen project, according to TMZ.

Gotti Sr., the ruthless head of the powerful Gambino crime family, was convicted in 1992 for his involvement in the murders of 13 people. He died behind bars in 2002.

Junior, who was released from prison in 2005 after serving time for racketeering, is now said to be close to signing a deal with Stallone for a gritty new movie.

Sylvester Stallone, in the meantime, is gearing up for the release of his movie "The Expendables" on August 13. In the movie which has star-studded cast ensemble, the actor takes a lead role in addition to serving as director and scribe.
