Jolie and Scott to team up for Gucci biopic
Angelina Jolie is set to star in Ridley Scott's biopic of Maurizio Gucci.
Scott has been long been attached to the film but it seems Twentieth Century Fox are rushing through the project in a bid to start filming early next year.
Jolie is expected to play Gucci's wife Patrizia Reggiano - who famously hired a hitman to kill her fashion designer husband. She is currently serving 29 years in jail.
It's not clear yet who is to play Gucci, but it can only be a matter of time before regular Scott collaborator Russell Crowe is linked to the role.
The director is a busy man of late. Not only has he just finished Robin Hood, but he also has Alien 5, the film adaptation of British mini-series Red Riding and Monopoly on his slate.
