CINCINNATI (AP): A biopic on the life of New York mob boss John Gotti is set to be filmed in Cincinnati.

Pre-production for “The Life and Death of John Gotti” is underway. Filming is scheduled to begin in late July.

Golden Globe-winning actor John Travolta will star as the title character. His real-life wife, Kelly Preston, will play Gotti’s wife.

Gotti was the former head of the Gambino crime family.

One of the film’s producers says they wanted Cincinnati’s “grittiness and substance” to become part of the story.

The Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Film Commission says filmmakers are taking advantage of the state’s revised Motion Picture Tax Credit.

Ohio recently doubled its yearly cap for the tax incentive program to $40 million. The program reimburses out-of-state movie producers for some expenses.
