Ridley Scott and Angelina Jolie Team for Gucci Drama
Posted by: Kristy
Ridley Scott has agreed to direct an untitled drama about the plot to kill famed fashion designer Maurizio Gucci. Scott is looking at Angelina Jolie to star as Patrizia Reggiano, the woman who was convicted for plotting the murder. It is thought that the film would chronicle the heyday of the Gucci family and the in-fighting that eventually took them down.
The film seems to be getting the fast track at Fox 2000 with a planned 2010 start date, but a lot about the movie seems to still be up in the air. For example, he doesn’t have anyone to play Maurizio, even though Scott favorite Leonardo DiCaprio has been approached about the role.
