The actress will immerse herself in the Gucci universe and play Patrizia Reggiani, who spent 18 years in prison after killing her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci, heir of the brand.
After months of speculation, MGM bought the rights to the story, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The script, written by Roberto Bentivegna, will be based on the book “Casa Gucci: A story of glamor, greed, madness and death”, written by Sara Gay Forden and released in 2001.
The film, which is scheduled to open on November 24, 2021, will be directed by Ridley Scott and produced by Giannina Scott.
It is worth mentioning that, according to the publication, MGM has fought for the rights of the story with Netflix and another streaming service, which was not mentioned, which only raises expectations for this to be a powerful production. Anxious?
