Angelina Jolie Starts Drama With Gucci

Angelina Jolie is in talks to star in the new drama Gucci, to be directed by Ridley Scott.

According to Variety, the film, set to start shooting next year, is about a famous fashion family stricken by scandal and murder as Angie‘s character’s plots to kill her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci.

No word on who may play Maurizio – Ridley Scott has approached Leonardo DiCaprio about the part, but Leo‘s not attached to the film at this time.

As soon as a deal is stuck, Angie will star in The Tourist – production will likely take place in early 2010 before Gucci filming begins.

    Gucci could be good, Scott has directed great films with powerful female characters – Alien, Thelma & Louise. She should sign for this one.

    The Tourist seems a little bit generic, but with Florian Von Donnersmark directing, it might be interesting if he can bring a european touch to a hollywood thriller.

    I guess that means she will star in the Kay Scarpetta movie in 2011. It could be the start of a good franchise.

    bored @ 10/21/2009 at 4:57 pm @groundcontrol: Is that IUC site still feeding those crazed women who are batshit insane over Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? LMAO
    .

    Yes. Sadly they are still clueless that Ian is really the two other “people” on his site who write gibberish and pretend they are riddles about Brad and Angie over there. Even if you couldn’t figure it out based on Ian’s M.O. you can see in the photos of the alter egos that it’s Ian in both pics. Those women keep talking to the other 2 Ian alter egos as if they exist – even asking about their health. LOL!
    .
    After laying off for a while Ian is back on the Angie and Brad coattails. One of the former regulars at IUC did a google search of the “clues” Ian wrote in one of his so called riddles and found all the phrases in the October issue of an LA magazine. So it would seem while traveling around Ian picked up a complimentary copy of that mag and just lifted phrases from a couple of articles, inserted elipses between some phrases and words and voila he posts a riddle alleged to be insider info on Brad and Angie. I couldn’t stop laughing. It is just too funny.
    .
    The funniest thing is whatever they speculate these meaningless fake riddles mean, that becomes a fact to them. LOL! How did I miss that people were ever this stupid?

    Dear Anak, idot jealous loser fan of the middle aged TV sh*t-com hack, Maniston – Angelina has been off since Changeling wrapped – at least a year and half. I know, I know…ssshhhhhh…s’okay, it’ll be alllll right – I know how time flies when you’re wishing that dried up alcoholic boozer would hurry up and use her last ovary before time runs out – but it’s true…it’s been a year and a half….tell Fuggiston she’s gonna look up from clearing the cobwebs out of her big panties, to see the twins graduating from high school, and like you Anak, will wonder where the time went. LMAO :)

  • celia

    YES!!! I can’t wait to see it!! Angelina is one of my favorite actresses! I love everything she does! Between her and Brad they sure are racking up the good film roles! :D

  • cee

    The trolls follow every Angelina move. So funny. Well I am sure if Brad’s movies are on hold that he is more than happy to have Angie make millions doing a movie while he sstay home with the kids. They have a great working relationship. So as always they will work this all out. After all six kids and three homes, charity donations takes lots of money. SO as heter can not leave them alone. You go Angie and Brad you keep being the man. How many other Hollywood leading men stay home and care for their kids while Mom works.

  • christine

    JOLIE & LEO WOULD LOOK HOT TOGETHER….. I’M SURE HE’D LIKE TO BITE HER LIPS

  • hmmmm

    @Anak:
    She said she would take the rest of the year off.

  • monica

    this should be interesting. keeping in mind that the woman she’s supposedly playing is Patrizia Reggiani Gucci who was found guilty of plotting to murder her husband in 1995. she was sentenced to 29 years in jail. as much as she tried, the woman did not get a “get out of jail” card. as far as i know, she is still in jail. i was in italy when the trial took place and belive me patrizia is one strange woman. and in my mind, as guilty as sin. i just hope angelina doesn’t play her as some sorry urchin in need of our sympathy.

  • anne marie

    Gee, isn’t this nice. Almost 60 posts and only like 4 or 5 hater comments. Why can’t the Jolie-Pitt fans stay away from Jennifer Aniston’s board but no, everytime there is a Jen post, the AJ haters come out in full force and take over. To prove my point, just look at the last Aniston post and out of 400 posts more than half, HALF are AJ haters. It would be nice if the AJ haters can stay away like the Jen fans are staying from from AJ’s board. Thank you.

    I have spoken.

  • CLINIQUA

    But if AJ fans stayed off Maniston threads, Maniston would have no posts. Just like she can’t open movies by herself either. Face it, her fans do not support her.

    How many lies can a person tell? Ask your fugly idol, who said emphatically “I did, I do and I will” when asked if she wanted to have children FIVE YEARS AGO … still no kids after being with innumerable men. She also lied to her then husband about having kids and has been lying about that ever since. Why not just be brave like Sandra B and Cameron D and admit that she is not cut out to be a mother?

  • CLINIQUA

    No 31%

    Bahahahahaha!!!!!

  • anne marie

    @CLINIQUA:

    Not true. But it’s hard to find all of Jen fan’s posts because of all the Jen haters who are mostly AJ fans. Notice I refer to Jolie as AJ and not a nickname like you have to do by calling Jen, Maniston. And when was the last time AJ opened a movie by herself. And don’t say Changeling because it bombed domestically. No actress today can open a film by herself unless perhaps Meryl Streep.

    My God this better happen with Angie & Leo!!

    It could be so good, because the story is better than some made up ones!! And the woman Angie would play would be the ultimate dream of every actress, i mean the woman is evil, but sooo complex and she could have fun playing her!

  • coco

    Maddox Jolie Pitt DiCaprio has a nice ring to it.
    Brad the Billygoat will not be happy about this. I smell trouble.

  • Vivi

    I do hope Leonardo Dicaprio joins this movie. I don’t really know if he and Angelina match, but I’ve always wanted to see them act in the same movie.

  • CLINIQUA

    Uh, dear anne marie idiot – say hello to ‘WANTED’ which grossed 51 mil it’s opening weekend, and went on to gross more than Mr. & Mrs Smth – that movie opened on Angelina’s back and the entire industry and world knows it…and sorry Kung Fu Panda, was just as much AJ’s hit, as the NYT best selling book about a golden lab, starring a big male comedy star, that didn’t even feature Maniston on the poster, was a hit for Maniston – I’d say MORE SO – because KFP actually was not ashamed to USE Angelina in the promotion of the movie way before it released…they even wanted 7 month preg Angie out there hawking out with Jack Black all over the world…. While the poster for MM featured a cute puppy in a big red bow, and that’s it., no Maniston to be found..hahaha ….also, Changeling a period drama made over 100 million, that’s called a hit – it also got her nominated for every acting accolade in the business. If Swank or theron had been cast, it wouldn’t have made over 25 mil. So give it up – everyone knows AJ rules HW, that’s why she gets the big bucks, and unlike the tv sh*t-com hack – it ain’t from residuals on usa network – AJ makes her money from FILMS, because she’s a REAL MOVIE STAR.

  • hmmmm

    It looks like Angie is not happy with the current script of Gucci. They are hiring new writers. I say this will be a late 2010 production or maybe 2011 if Angie will take it.

  • So Wonderful

    She is such a gorgeous woman – perfect to play the part.

  • elizabeth

    I will check Mr. Gucci later. But, I think or like Clive Owen for Angie. but no matter….I will, always support her.

  • Jennifer Fan

    I am a Jennifer fan and even though she is looking increasingly haggard and desperate with her crappy movies and constantly discussing her personal life for profit, I will not see this movie with academy award winning Angelina Jolie. No, I will continue to see Jennifer’s horrid movies, buy magazines that print her desperate and grasping at love interviews because I can relate to a woman who is a loser rather than a powerful, successful gorgeous woman like Angelina. See you at the Baster Crapfest or the The Bounty Sucks.

  • anne marie

    @CLINIQUA:

    You said that Jen can not open a film with her name only. Wanted has the billing as James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman and Angelina Jolie. The last time AJ had solo billing was on Life or Something Like It. And we all know how that turned out. With KFP again she was billed third after Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman. She was not solo. Changeling only grossed 112 Million dollars worldwide with 55 Million dollar budget which means it only broke even. And in my city, the Marley and Me ads had Jennifer and Owen Wilson in the ad with the dog below them. Jen’s has had great box with Marley and Me and The Break Up and as ensemble with He’ Just Not That Into You.

  • stay home with your kids

    Sounds like a made for TV movie to me,,,,zzzzz

  • Teri

    Dayummmm is there anything this woman can’t do? I love her so much and she’s so gorgeous to boot. It just keeps getting better and better with this woman/family. I was shocked she/they didn’t get the Nobel Peace Prize. They would have certainly deserved it far more than just the talk of Obama.

  • CLINIQUA

    yes, because everyone knows James McAvoy is such a big box office star. Why he’s right up there with Marvin Hemmelecher, and Tony Bruschetta. (‘who the fck are they you ask??!!I um, that’s my point. lolol) I guess that’s why it was James who was all over the poster and the trailer for Wanted — oops, NO, wait a sec..my bad…I’m thinkng that was…(((((ANGELINA JOLIE)))) hahah. Oh, and ‘billing’ doesn’t make a dmn bit of difference, in the Pirate Movie Johnny Depp was billed after Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley…yeah, I don’t need to go on do I?? Hahahaha

  • AJBP

    Love Anige. Hope Leo jumps on board.

  • Teri

    Do you really think Leo would be seconed fiddle to Angelina? It would take a pretty secure man to let Angelina lead- Brad for example.

  • Teri

    Wanted had ANGELINAS PICTURE ON IT, no one else. Get over trying to convince yourself otherwise. And might I add she had a great @ss.

  • MsNJS

    This is great news. Enough to bring me out of hiding.

    I think she would be perfect for the role. I am not sure about Dicaprio. I was never a huge fan of his. Even though I think he is a good actor. But he doesn;t have any WOW factor, like Angelina she needs some that can compete, not catch up. I look forward to this moreso than the tourist. The tourist seems very similar to her previous stuff. This is different and something, if written correctly, she can sink her teeth into!! It will showcase her talent

  • anne marie

    @CLINIQUA:

    The poster for Wanted had all 3 of their names with Jolie last. She was NOT A SOLO STAR IN THAT FILM. If anything the story was more about James McAvoy’s character. Name the last film Jolie had ONLY her name attached that opened big…….I’ll tell you, Lara Croft which was like 7 years ago.

  • mslewis

    @anne marie:
    Yeah, honey, you’re right!! Everybody went to see “Wanted” because of McAvoy and Freeman. I, myself, said to my BF, Sweetie, let’s pay $15 each, plus another $50 for dinner, to spend a night out watching James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman in a movie called “Wanted.” Yeah, that’s what I said!! In fact, all the people who helped “Wanted” become a $400 million, worldwide blockbuster were there to see McAvoy and Freeman!! I mean, every producer and money man in Hollywood knows that McAvoy and Freeman are the go to people when they want a blockbuster.

    Now, what are the names of all the other blockbusters McAvoy and Freeman have starred in? I’ll wait for your list because I know you have one!!! Quick now, I don’t have all day!!

  • anne marie

    @mslewis:

    Ok “Honey”, Cliniqua said that Aniston can not open a film with her name only. I answered back that no actress today can open a film with her name only. If Wanted only had Jolie’s name attached on the poster then I would give her props for the success of that but her name was not the only one! Sheesh, understand much?

  • Teri

    I’m not saying James McAvoy wasn’t good, I’m saying that many went to see it because of Angelina. The movie posters were of Angelina not McAvoy. Again not saying that McAvoy wasn’t nice to look at! I’d love to see Angelina be casted with the best of the best she has certainly earned that right.

  • MsNJS

    @anne marie
    Stop being so dense. You know exactly what she means. Angelina Jolie did have a small secondary role in the movie BUT she was used in all the advertising and promotions. Every trailer, promo shoot, interview, everything. Many people were surprised by the length of her role since she was the most hyped person in the film. Not to mention AJ had huge record breaking openings with:
    -Tomb Raider
    - Tomb Raider 2
    -Mr. and Mrs. Smith

  • so

    Wanted was supposed to make James McAvoy a big movie star it didn’t happen.

  • coco

    Why can’t Brad the Billygoat play the male lead?

  • Teri

    OMG, Angelina is hot property now days. Just think what this woman could do by throwin a few cute dogs into the mix. Awwww…. naw I think Angelina doesn’t need a dogs to carry a movie for her.

  • Not Impressed by JA

    so @ 10/21/2009 at 6:47 pm Wanted was supposed to make James McAvoy a big movie star it didn’t happen.

    ———————————-
    Maybe becaus eof the poll that asked what was the number one reason you went seeing that movie turn out :
    .
    Number 1 : because of Angelina Jolie….at more than 60 %
    .
    Number 2 because of the action
    .
    There were no reply for mc Avoy nor Freeman.
    .
    sorry haterz !

  • mommy, where are you?

    - love to see Angie play the role of mother of 6 children. Looking forward to it.

    anne marie @ 10/21/2009 at 5:54 pm Gee, isn’t this nice. Almost 60 posts and only like 4 or 5 hater comments. Why can’t the Jolie-Pitt fans stay away from Jennifer Aniston’s board but no, everytime there is a Jen post, the AJ haters come out in full force and take over. To prove my point, just look at the last Aniston post and out of 400 posts more than half, HALF are AJ haters. It would be nice if the AJ haters can stay away like the Jen fans are staying from from AJ’s board. Thank you.

  • vickifromtexas

    #93 angelina’s children have a father. do you think only a mother can spend time with her children?

  • Teri

    For the last year and a half Angelina has been a full time mother. I know you just don’t comprehend do you? Every mother who works is a bad mother according to you. I’d say in your opinion I’m also terrible mother becaue I work M-F. What a way to put women back 40 years in your thinking. Some just don’t think living on welfare and taking others hard earned money is right. Guess your just getting cranky since your welfare money is all spent up this month.

    mommy, where are you? @ 10/21/2009 at 6:57 pm – love to see Angie play the role of mother of 6 children. Looking forward to it.
