PRICE HILL, OH (FOX19) -

John Travolta stopped by a Price Hill menswear store to be fitted for suits that might be worn in his upcoming Cincinnati-shot film

The owner of Peppe Ramundo Menswear & Black Tie posted the photo of Travolta and himself on Facebook Thursday evening.

"Had a great time fitting the one and only John Travolta today for a few suits that will be worn in his new John Gotti film," Ramundo said.

Travolta will play the title character in "The Life and Death of John Gotti." His real-life wife, Kelly Preston, will play Gotti's wife and "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly will be direct the film.

"It's been like a dream come true to me to tell this story," Connolly told the New York Daily News in April.

Gotti was the head of the Gambino crime family. He was sentenced to life in prison in 1992 after being convicted of murder and other counts. He died behind bars a decade later.

“I’ve done a bunch of stuff, but this will be my biggest thing,” Connolly said of the film "Gotti," in the Daily News' article. “It's all good and ready to go. I'm very excited. It's a lot of work.”

No word on where the film will be shot in Cincinnati.
