Kelly Preston is now set to tackle a truly challenging role opposite real-life husband John Travolta in the upcoming Gotti: Three Generations. People reports:

Steve Honig, a spokesman for the production company, says of Preston, 48: “She’s a terrific actress, and she can really do the role justice.” Adds Marc Fiore, the movie’s producer: “The love and passion between John and Kelly … will bring a huge benefit to John Sr. and his wife, and to tell you the truth, they have a lot in common. They both lost a child at a young age and they understand what the Gottis went thru when the Gottis lost their child.

And the similarities don’t stop there. Think about it, the mafia is a secretive, powerful organization that requires the women married to high-ranking members to silently abide their husbands sexual depravity. And that aliens gave their mothers the secret ingredients for ‘Sunday Gravy’. Ok, maybe that last part is a stretch, but c’mere you godda try dis and tell me it ain’t da best friggin’ sauce you eva had!
