Penelope Cruz is in talks to star in the biopic of Italian fashion family dynasty “Gucci” at Scott Free reports The Wrap.
Originally slated to be helmed by Ridley Scott when it was first announced in 2006, his daughter Jordan is now taking over the project. The story follows the late Maurizio Gucci, grandson of the Gucci founder, as he becomes heir to the family empire.
He was gunned down in 1995 with his ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani, jailed for the killing in 1999. Angelina Jolie was previously approached to play Reggiani.
