Lindsay Lohan is reportedly close to landing the role of a lifetime-playing Victoria Gotti opposite John Travolta in the upcoming biopic, 'Gotti: Three Generations.' And after the actress's appearance at a NYC press conference for the film, it seems she's even closer to sealing the deal.

The 24-year-old certainly looks the part but will the producers be able to look past her shaky history? "Lindsay is a terrific actress," Marc Fiore, the movie's producer, told PEOPLE. "Nothing has been finalized, but we are definitely in talks."

Lohan has one VIP supporting her: Victoria Gotti herself! "I think she's incredible," Gotti said. "I think she's a great actress. I think she can do ... any role, really."

"She had a little bit of a bumpy road recently," she added. "I think she's doing great; I think she's going to continue to do great and she's got a lot of people rooting for her."
