Andrea Berloff has been hired to write the feature film based on the Gucci family for Paramount Pictures and Scott Free Productions.
Ridley Scott will also be directing the film. Variety reports the exact storyline is unclear, although it is known to span many years and several locales tracking the lives of the Gucci clan, known for creating one of the elite fashion houses and putting its stamp on the fashion biz over the course of decades.
The film will also go behind the scenes of the family dynasty that was marred by soap opera-style drama: Paolo Gucci almost sent his father, Aldo Gucci, to prison for tax fraud; Maurizio Gucci was murdered in 1995; and his widow, Patrizia Gucci, was convicted three years later of ordering his assassination.
There’s no production schedule for the Gucci family film.
