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.

    from Lainey Says:

    Don’t be a stuck squirrel!


    This is the party I would have really wanted to be at.

    Us Weekly is reporting that on October 16th, the GMD and Katie Holmes were in London attending a Scientology event with thousands of other Xenu lovers to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the International Association of Scientologists. The Midge even delivered some oratory fireworks, a speech that had them hootin’ and hollerin’ in the aisles as he shouted:

    “Because we never took our eyes off the ultimate prize, we stand where we are today. We are in this together!”

    Then a choir started to sing and the GMD, with Katie and Little Sci beside him, started “swaying”, swept up in the rapture. Apparently his wife tried endearingly to match his fervour but she couldn’t find the beat. I thought she used to be a dancer? Why is she rhythm challenged?

    Maybe she was thrown off by the protesters outside. The GMD has a special word for them. He was overhead telling a fellow Thetan worshiper that, “They’re squirrels. Stuck in an electronic incident. It makes me so angry!”

    Bronson Pinchot is about to be called a stuck squirrel in an electronic incident too. Have you heard about this interview making the rounds?

    Bronson of course is best known for playing Balki in Perfect Strangers. He also worked with Tom Cruise in Risky Business. His words:

    We didn’t know (Risky Business) was going to be a big hit. We thought Tom [Cruise] was the biggest bore on the face of the Earth. He had spent some formative time with Sean Penn—we were all very young at the time, Tom was 20, I was 23. Tom had picked up this knack of calling everyone by their character names, because that would probably make your performance better, and I don’t agree with that. I think that acting is acting, and the rest of the time, you should be you, but he called us all by our character names. He was tense and made constant, constant unrelated homophobic comments, like, “You want some ice cream, in case there are no gay people there?” I mean, his lingo was larded with the most… There was no basis for it. It was like, “It’s a nice day, I’m glad there are no gay people standing here.”

    Very, very strange.

    Years and years later when people started to torment him with that, I used to think “God, that’s really fitting, because he tormented a lot of people as a 20-year-old.” He made such a big deal about it.

    I really don’t know (if he was insecure or just immature). It is what it is; there’s nothing I can add to it. If someone’s 20 years old and every third line out of their mouth is anti-something specific, then draw your own conclusion. I thought it was very weird.

    Oh, no (I didn’t think he’d be exciting onscreen). I thought the movie would disappear. It just goes to show you, I obviously don’t have the antennae for that. I didn’t see it at all, but neither did any of the actors. All of the actors who talked about him were like, “What is this guy all about?” And you know, honestly, I never got it, and I don’t get it to this day. But it was his breakout film. He always talked about himself like he was a mega-superstar; that was weird, too.

    This is my new favourite line.

    About ice cream. Ice cream for gays.

    Like there was ever any doubt, right?

    Click here for the full Pinchot interview. If I were him, I’d go into hiding. Chills, chills, chills.

    Attached – Tom Cruise and Scientology head David Miscavige. They like riding motorbikes and not going for ice cream.

    This is an interesting film. I will believe it when I see her filming it. Remember she has been attached to Atlas Shrugged for years and then dropped out. Brad was attached to State of Play and dropped out at last minutes and the whole Moneyball Saga. She hasn’t officially signed on The Tourist either.

    Ridley Scott directed Body of Lies and that movie was underrated. Dicaprio did a great job in it. I think he can be very intense in his acting giving the appropriated role.

    I think this would be an AMAZING film for her. I feel like she needs something plot-y with some edge to it. Much as I love her and feel like SHE always brings it, I feel like her movies often let her down. I just don’t feel like she’s done one yet that will be remembered 20 years from now. Gia, Girl Interrupted, Changeling, are all only memorable for her performances. She needs a movie that lifts her up, not that she has to carry almost totally on her own.
    The one exception is A Mighty Heart, which I do think was a really strong film, top to bottom. But it doesn’t exactly have any rewatchability factor to it, and it’s hard to get people to give it a chance because it’s SO serious.

    w0w Says:

    she is highly in demand huh?

    i thought some nitwits here said she’s too old to be a femme fatale? and young Fox is the new Jolie? LMAO. i guess every director wants the original and not just some wannabe. Theron, Berry, Thurman and Beckinsale are also good but why settle for less when they could have the best?!

    she is obviously the most versatile actress in HW today whether you like it or not. may it be drama, action or anything in between. an award winning director + an award winning actress = award winning movie.

    It is so glad that great things keep coming to Brad and Angelina. They both are highly in demand and are well respected in the industry. God Bless the jolie pitt.

    ‘Jolie is just such a dominant presence in movies that she’s not easily compatible with many leading men’.

    That’s interesting because she was balanced out with Pitt in Mr and Mrs Smith.

    Angie always dominants in all movies except Mr. and Mrs. Smith which led the form of Brangelina.

    Now THIS role sounds fantastic! I said before that her action roles are getting boring but that doesn’t mean I don’t ♥ Angie. This role is DRAMA!!! YAY!! I hope she does it!

    Sonia0404 Says:

    I read about this story, really can’t wait too see Angie’s interpretation.
    But, shouldn’t Angie gain a few pounds for the role?

    bored Says:

    @cheenia: that didn’t require much. that was a fun action movie.

  19. 44
    bored Says:

    @jane: I agree. I also think she needs a leading man or woman that can hold his own and will give 100%. The problem I had with the good shepherd was I felt Damon wasn’t that great of an Actor in it. I like him in some movies but he wasn’t good in The good Shepard … or maybe that’s the way he was supposed to play it but I just felt like his acting was slacking and boring in that movie.

    bored Says:

    Angie was awesome in Changeling. The guy that played the cop is also an excellent actor. too bad they didn’t have any real love interest between the two in that movie. :) I liked him.

    What a shocker. Another predicted event from the lunatics at Female First and their clone site IUC.
    How many predicted break ups so far since 2005? At the rate of at least one prediction per week – that comes to about 260 incorrect predicted break ups dates so far. Is that you, Vajranagini?
    Seriously has a qualified psychiatrist examined those hate sites yet? Five years. FIVE YEARS! How long do such delusional obsessions usually last anyway?

    @groundcontrol: Is that IUC site still feeding those crazed women who are batshit insane over Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? LMAO

    groundcontrol Says:

    The Tourist is not an action film. It’s a spy thriller not all of which are actioners. The Spy Who Came In From the Cold, North by Northwest, Notorious were spy thrillers but they were not action films.
    I am very excited that Angie may have a chance to work with Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck who directed the Oscar winning German film THE LIVES OF OTHERS. Go check him out. I think the two of them would get along really well. Ridley is so hit and miss these days and to be honest I was never a huge fan of his.

    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?
