Sylvester Stallone has confirmed the rumors that he intends to play the late Mafia don John Gotti in a biopic, and also shed light on what the focus of the project will be on.

In a Q&A chat with fans over at Ain't It Cool News, Stallone said, "The Gotti project is still in its incubative form. The John Gotti story was already aptly portrayed by my friend Armand Assante [in the HBO telepic Gotti], so what intrigues me is the aftermath of power, when the lion of the streets is now relegated to an 8X10 foot cell for the remainder of his life."

He added, "Also the thoughts that pervade his mind coupled with the impact he had on the children near and dear to him provide an inordinate amount of material. Yet the project is still far away from coming into being. "
