Ridley Scott to Direct Movie About the Gucci Dynasty

According to Variety's pun of the morning, "Fox 2000 will fashion the story of the Gucci dynasty into a feature directing vehicle for Ridley Scott." The movie will follow "the wild and glamorous story of the Gucci family in the 1970s and '80s, when its 153 shops moved $500 million in product annually."

The lives of fashion icons often seem wild and glamorous, but I had no idea how dramatic and intriguing this family's story is. Apparently the story will focus on Maurizio Gucci, "the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci who emerged as the unlikely winner of a bloody power struggle to run the family business. Just when Maurizio was on the verge of his greatest success — a daring fashion show debuting the clothes of newcomer Tom Ford — his penchant for accumulating enemies caught up with him; Maurizio was gunned down in front of his Milan apartment in 1995."

Now does seem like a good time for a project like this with the writers strike going on; this stuff writes itself. I just wonder how Scott's pet actor Russell Crowe will fit into it all.

What an interesting project choice for him. He does well with period films, so I hope he can live up to the Gucci legacy.
