Former Gambino crime family head John Gotti Jr. is ready to turn his life story into a movie, a documentary, and a memoir, Deadline reports.

Junior, the son of one of the Mafia’s most renowned figures, John Gotti Sr., is free by law to share his tale for entertainment purposes after federal prosecutors announced early this year that they would not seek a fifth trial against him for alleged offenses, including murder and racketeering. He previously spent a total of nine years in prison for various other offenses.

“He’s willing to go all the way, revealing as much as possible without hurting anyone who’s still involved in the street life,” says Tony D’Aiuto, Gotti’s former defense attorney and a founder of Triplicity Entertainment, the New York-based production company with which the former crime boss has aligned himself for the documentary film.

Gotti Jr. will also appear in a segment on 60 Minutes on April 11.
