Cruz does Gucci!

Daughter of Ridley Scott, Jordan Scott is in talks to direct the Gucci biopic, a film detailing the death, betrayal and the insane power struggles behind the world’s most famous clothing brand with Penelope Cruz in the lead role.

The story of the Gucci family begins in the glamorous days from the 1970’s and 1980’s when the family was selling $500 million in products annually. The film tells the story of the late Maurizio Gucci, grandson of the Gucci founder, as he becomes heir to the family empire.

Gucci was later gunned down in 1998 by a hired hit man. His ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani, was sentenced to 29 years jails for plotting the murder. But did Patrizia Reggiani murder her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci, in 1995 because his spending was wildly out of control? Did she do it because her glamorous ex was preparing to marry his mistress, Paola Franchi? Or is there a possibility she didn’t do it at all?

If anyone can pull off the sexy femme fatale of the Gucci heiress, then Cruz is your gal. Angelina Jolie was previously linked to the role, but Cruz has more than confirmed the lead role, take that Angelina!
