Lindsay Lohan handpicked for Mafia role

Wednesday April 13, 2011

Lindsay Lohan may be close to getting her career back on track.

The actress, 24, is in talks to play the role of Victoria Gotti in the upcoming mob film, Gotti: Three Generations.

Victoria herself (pictured with Lindsay at the Gotti press call) handpicked her for the part.

The film, which tells the real-life story of the notorious Gambino crime family and mafia boss John "The Dapper Don" Gotti, has John Travolta secured for the lead role, and Goodfellas actor Joe Pesci playing the part of his close friend.

If all goes well for Lindsay, this could be the part which revives her career.

She is currently on trial for grand theft regarding a diamond necklace.
