LOS ANGELES, April 18 (UPI) -- Scheduling conflicts are preventing Nick Cassavetes from directing "Gotti: Three Generations" as planned, the U.S. film's producers said.

The movie is to star John Travolta as late Gambino crime boss John Gotti. Lindsay Lohan is in talks to play Gotti's daughter, Victoria.

Variety said Cassavetes cannot direct the picture this fall as planned because of his commitment to helm the drama "Yellow."

The producers of Gotti are now looking for a replacement, the entertainment industry trade newspaper said.

Cassavetes has directed "Alpha Dog" and "The Notebook." He is the son of the late filmmaker John Cassavetes and actress Gena Rowlands.
