Daily Dish: Angelina Jolie Set to Star in Gucci Movie
The hot mama is in talks to play Patrizia Reggiano in a new movie about the fashion label’s family, the Guccis.
After the success of The September Issue and Coco Before Chanel, Hollywood is taking notice that fashion flicks sell. So, when casting started for the new fashion industry movie set to debut in 2010, Gucci, about the family life of the Gucci dynasty, directors of course wanted Angelina Jolie on board.
Jolie has been offered the role of Patrizia Reggiano, Maurizio Gucci’s ex-wife who plotted his murder and was sentenced to 29 years in the big house. Leonardo Dicaprio has been offered the role of Maurizio, but there’s no word yet on whether either of the A-list actors have definitely committed to the project.
Angelina and Leonardo? We haven’t seen them do a project together yet … could be interesting. And anything to do with fashion, you know we’re on board for. (OK! Magazine)
