It's a family affair!

Kelly Preston is joining hubby John Travolta and daughter Ella Bleu in Gotti: Three Generations, confirms. 

Travolta, 57, will play John Gotti, Sr. and Preston, 48 will portray his wife, Victoria DiGorgio; Ella Bleu, 11, will play their onscreen daughter.

Lindsay Lohan, 24, will play the couple's other on-screen daughter. Travolta told Us Weekly in April working with the actress would be "great" and joked: "I know first hand, Lindsay happens to be a very big fan of mine from years ago when she was a little girl and liked [Grease's] Danny Zuko and [Welcome Back Kotter's] Vinny Barborino, so I always thought she was gorgeous and talented and filled with a lot of depth!"

To research the role, Travolta has been spending time with Gotti Jr. and the two have found much in common.

"His father lost a son, and I lost a son and we discussed that in depth and how painful that is and how painful it was for his father," said the actor, whose 16-year-old son Jett died in 2009. "It was an amazing kind of evening. It was quintessential for this, and even if I hadn't done the movie, I'd love him anyways."
