John Travolta’s Mafia Movie Not Sleeping With the Fishes

John  Travolta should start working on perfecting a thick New York  Mafioso accent.

It sounds like cameras will finally roll on the much talked-about John Gotti movie

“I think we’ve got the money sorted out now,” Gotti: Three Generations‘ writer and  director Barry Levinson told me last night at BAFTA LA’s Britannia   Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. “It’s coming together.”

Travolta is set to star as Gotti, the late Mafia crime boss who was nicknamed  “the Teflon Don,” alongside Ben Foster as his son and real-life  wife Kelly  Preston as his daughter, Victoria.

“It’s  not just him, but John Gotti Jr.,” Levinson said. “The dynamic that is  interesting to me is Gotti Jr. growing up in the shadow of his  father and  thinking he was supposed to step up as the next Don and then  suddenly realizing  that this is not a world he wants to be a part of and how do you deal with that  .”

Levinson  told me they may even shoot in my hometown of Howard Beach,  N.Y.   Yes, I grew up in the same neighborhood as the Gottis.

Meanwhile,  in other movie scoop, Helena  Bonham Carter wouldn’t confirm reports that  she is set to reunite  with her The King’s Speech director Tom Hopper to   star opposite Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman and Anne  Hathaway in the movie  adaptation of hit Broadway musical Les  Misérables.

“Don’t know yet,” Carter said. “I don’t know.”

If it happens, Carter would play garish innkeeper Madame Thenardier.
