May 4th, 2011 4:32pm EDT
John Travolta's upcoming Gotti family biopic has turned into a real family affair - Kelly Preston has signed on to play his onscreen wife.
Preston, who wed the Pulp Fiction star in 1991, will portray Victoria Gotti and the couple's real-life daughter Ella Bleu, 11, will star as their onscreen child, Angel, in the upcoming film Gotti: Three Generations.
The movie's producer, Marc Fiore, tells People.com, "The love and passion between John and Kelly... will bring a huge benefit to John Sr. and his wife."
He adds, "They have a lot in common. They both lost a child at a young age and they understand what the Gottis went through when the Gottis lost their child."
Travolta and Preston's son Jett passed away in 2009.
Lindsay Lohan has also signed on to play Kim Gotti, the couple's daughter-in-law, in the movie.
Rain Man moviemaker Barry Levinson was announced as the film's director on Tuesday.
