No one to play ‘Gotti Jr.’ as Depp, Downey, Renner, Franco say no to role!
London: The producers of ‘Gotti’ are having a tough time to fill the role of John Gotti Jr. after Johnny Depp, Robert Downey, Jeremy Renner and James Franco turned down the offer.
According to the movie’s executive producer Marty Ingles, none of the actors having been considered were able to commit to the project.
"Franco turned it down and Depp, Jeremy Renner and Downey, Jr. were too busy with other movies. We are going to have to put out an urgent casting call. Junior is a big part of this movie. It is very much his story," the Daily Express quoted him as telling the New York Post.
Other major roles have already been finalized with John Travolta playing the mob boss John Gotti along with Al Pacino and Lindsay Lohan.
