Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Adam Driver, Jared Leto in talks for Ridley Scott's new Gucci movie
Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Adam Driver and Jared Leto are all in talks to take key roles in Ridley Scott's new movie.
The film is currently known simply as Gucci and is already confirmed to star Lady Gaga.
As well as Gaga, De Niro, Pacino, Driver and Leto, Jack Huston and Reeve Carney are also in talks to join the drama.
Gaga is booked to play Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, the grandson of fashion dynasty founder Guccio Gucci.
Reggiani was tried and convicted of orchestrating Maurizio Gucci's assassination on the steps of his office in 1995. She served 18 years in jail before her release in 2016.
The film has a script from Roberto Bentivegna, who has adapted Sara Gay Forden’s book The House Of Gucci: A Sensational Story Of Murder, Madness, Glamour And Greed.
Scott will begin production on the movie as soon as he completes The Last Duel, his new Medieval epic which stars Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.
