Ridley Scott to Direct Gucci Pic

Catwalks, guns and money.

Ridley Scott is one busy director.

Less than a month after word surfaced that he would be following up Body of Lies and Nottingham with a supernatural thriller called Stones, Variety reports that Scott has signed on to direct Fox 2000’s planned Gucci family biopic. Charles Randolph is lined up to write the script, which will focus on the Gucci brand’s rise during the ’70s and ’80s. From the article:

The catalyst will be Maurizio Gucci, the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci who emerged as the unlikely winner of a bloody power struggle to run the family business. Just when Maurizio was on the verge of his greatest success — a daring fashion show debuting the clothes of newcomer Tom Ford — his penchant for accumulating enemies caught up with him; Maurizio was gunned down in front of his Milan apartment in 1995.

Scott is currently in Morocco, filming Body of Lies with Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe; from there, he’ll continue on with Crowe, who is also attached to Nottingham. Who knows? Maybe Crowe will star in the Gucci movie, too.
