>> Chanel has enjoyed a rash of Coco-centered films this year, and now it's Gucci's turn: a Gucci family-centered Ridley Scott vehicle, which has been in the works for years now, sounds like it may finally be moving forward — with Angelina Jolie in a leading role.
Scott and Jolie are currently in discussion, with the role of Patrizia Reggiano, who was sentenced to 29 years in jail for plotting the murder of her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci, on the table. A 2010 start date is being eyed for the film, reports Variety, but the script (which follows Gucci family through its heydey of the '70s and '80s, the subsequent power struggles, and the emergence of Maurizio, grandson of founder Guccio Gucci, to power — he put Tom Ford in place — before he was gunned down in front of his Milan apartment in 1995) is still in development. A Maurizio has yet to be cast — though Leonardo DiCaprio has been approached for the role.
