Angelina to Play Leading Lady Role in Gucci Movie

Angelina JolieOctober 21, 2009

Angelina Jolie no doubt owns a lot of Gucci items, but now she may be playing a role all about the family behind the iconic brand. According to Variety, Angie is in talks with director Ridley Scott to play the femme fatale of the film.
She’s being courted to play Patrizia Reggiano, who was sentenced to 29 years in jail for plotting the murder of her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci. The real-life Reggiano says she was involved with the death against her own will.

The film would capture the glamorous days of the Gucci family dynasty in the 1970s and '80s, when the family was selling $500 million in product annually. Squabbles hobbled the clan until Maurizio, the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci, came out on top of a power struggle to run the family business. Just when he was about to reestablish the brand name, Maurizio was gunned down by a hit man in front of his Milan apartment in 1995.

Leonardo DiCaprio has also been approached to be a part of the cast as well. Angie, Leo, and Gucci? We’re all for it!
