Gucci movie in the works

Ridley Scott, who helmed "American Gangster" and "Gladiator," is set to produce and direct a biopic based on the Gucci family dynasty. Women's Wear Daily says the big-budget flick will focus on the meteoric rise and near fall of the Italian fashion empire in the 1970s and '80s. The plot will revolve around the late Maurizio Gucci and his nasty battle with his cousins to protect his 50 percent stake in the business. It's also expected to include the scandalous murder attempt on Maurizio by his wife, Patrizia Reggiani, who's now in the slammer for hiring a hit man to try blowing him away.
