Angelina Jolie Starts Drama With Gucci

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.

    anne marie – lol, you are screwed in the head, out of sheer jealousy – face facts, the polls are in…what kind of idiot are you?? – first of all, it HAS already been done by Angelina alone on a marquis (see Tombraider films) but even if that wasn’t the case – there’s no star today who only has their name alone on the marquis, even Will Smith shared the spotlight with Charlize Theron on the marquis — and we know she didn’t have a damn thing to do with his box office.

    think she’s doing these movies because Pitt is currently unemployed, with money ball and city of z cancelled or delayed. Interesting they’re not using Columbia for the Cornwall franchise as was originally intended. Think that woman (can’t remember her name) who squashed money ball (and took a 10 mil loss for the studio) turned them on Columbia. Also, the guy who was working on city of z was fired from Columbia, right around the same time. Think they have to bargain to get what they want. I’ll do this movie (which I probably wouldn’t have done) if you produce this franchise. Seems like a good role for her and not necessarily as stereotyped as another action film might be.

    @Teri: Actually Salt was still filming in April 2009 in New York. Wonder who she wants as the director?

  • jane

    It’s not even worth arguing about Wanted’s big draw. This is one debate that has objective FACTS backing it up.
    “The studio said the main reasons given for choosing to see Wanted were the action (67%) and Jolie (61%). Exit polling showed the audience breakdown was 52%/48% male to female, 51%/49% under age 30 to over age 30.”
    For the slow kids in the class, not only is that 61% proof of which star deserves credit for the opening. But the male/female and age breakdowns are also proof of Angelina’s draw. Namely in that most action films are NOT so 50/50 in those demos. But Angie pulls in the women.

  • lylian

    What’s new?
    Many men fantasize about Angelina Jolie’s LIPS, sucking them, biting them, and all the other things men can imagine a pair of full lips can do for them.
    Only thing is that Angelina Jolie Isn’t interested. She’s got Brad to do the sucking and biting etc. :-)

  • adriana

    woww… this Gucci movie has awards potential written all over it. Angie will be great in this role. i love her in action but a villian role is a good mix for a talented actress like Angie.
    She is a very dominant actress and steals the spotlight when she shares the screen with any other actors/actresses, Alisters included; even in M&MS, as much as I enjoyed watching Brad, Angie is the most memorable one in that movie.

    ‘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.
    They were a match made in heaven.

  • old lady

    Anything with AJ or BP, i would love to see What if they are in this film together? Just wishful thinking. Thanks JJ and God bless.

  • lyla

    Gucci sounds like a great film, and with Ridley Scott too
    Hope they get a male other than DiCaprio though…

  • zula

    Okay, first of all Angelina filmed Salt after Changeling in the Spring of 2009. Second by the time any of the recently mentioned potential movies are actually being made if they are made, it will be just about a year since she worked. Third, how many kids get to have both their parents home with them for months at a time. The same kids get to travel all over the world; learn multiple languages; have a network of other international students to learn with; spend quality time with one parent while the other works and still get to visit the working parent regularly if not daily while he/she works; have their own support staff; have huge properties to explore and bothers and sisters to play with if no one else, etc., etc. I don’t think there are any reasons to call children’s services. Please!

  • del

    I will see anything with Brad and Angelina regardless of their co-stars.

  • to christine


    ok , i’m sorry. i did not realize that there is actually something wrong with the way you think. please get help before it gets worse.

  • http://!!!! jennipoop Anusstain.

    I do hope and pray Leonardo “Won’t” be in the film… please dear God…. He is to chuby and to over bloated for our Angie!
    he can continue sucking the bloated Kate W toes for all I care, I can’t stand both of them, since KW being a beotch to our AJ from Her Jealousy… what ever happened to chuby KW lately??

  • badabing

    During WANTED PROMO I actually recall reading Bloggers say ,”if the movie is a hit they better give Angelina credit” because the promotion was around Angelina and her ass kicking.

  • what a joke

    If Wanted Success can’t be given to Angie then I guess Basterds had nothing to with the fact that Brad was overpromoted in the promos and he wasn’t in the movie that much? I guess he can’t get credit for that? Lame!

  • Oh never mind

    coco @ 10/21/2009 at 6:12 pm

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


    LMAO! I See cliniqua is back causing trouble for Angie fans. Clinique is not an Angelina fan. She is a Crazy Brangelina fan obsessed with Maniston. Most angie fans couldn’t care less about Aniston. It’s the Brangelina fans that do need drama. . Give it a rest, Cliniqua. Cliniqua was also booted off of a Twighlight mega on JJB because she got to crazy with it.

  • yo mama

    Why are they picking two American actors doing bad accents in a Italian movie? Mr. Scott needs to pick Monica Bellucci. Now she is one Italian beauty.

  • Teri

    Cliniqua will even gift wrap your @ss back to you! Don’t fvck with Cliniqua because you definatly aren’t a match little girl.

  • Teri

    Yo Mamma doing over time pr work for your girl I see. Monica Bellucci? You certainly aren’t doing a very good job, who is she?

  • cee

    To much silliness on this thread tonight. God Bless the Jolie Pitts.

  • lylian

    @yo mama:
    There’s no need to diss the American actors for possible bad italian accents. Why be so mean spirited, hmmmm?
    What you say has some truth, Monica Belluci would presumably be gorgeous for the role that is allegedly being offered for Angelina.
    BUT, Investors don’t want to invest in a film that Monica is in as much as they would invest in movie that Angelina is in. And you know how it is, follow the money, money makes the world go round, cash is king.
    Of course, if you are a losie victim, then it’s always Angelina’s fault. She makes the investors throw money at her projects. She makes the great directors such as Clint Eastwood and Phillip Noyce want to direct her in movies. She makes men want to bite her lips.
    So now, if the role of the murderess gucci were accepted by Angelina, it would give the losie victims out there, the excuse to scream that Angelina robbed Monica of her role as the murdering gucci, robbed Halle Berry of the role as Fox in Wanted, robbed Charlize of her role in Tourist, robbed Tom Cruise of his role in Salt and robbed Jennifer puffyface Aniston of her role in A Mighty Heart!!
    And as the role of the murdering gucci might actually have drama and pathos and OSCAR stamped all over it, the losie victims can claim that Angelina robbed them of the oscar too.

  • Neil

    Even bad Ridley Scott films are special. Add to that, Angie would be playing a true villain. This could be an iconic role for her considering all the alleged controversy surrounding her life. Wait and see. This could be interesting.

  • Richard P

    my Queen Angelina i love her forever

  • irma

    I hope, she will do both The Tourist & Gucci, very exciting year for Angie. I hope, Brad played Gucci with Angie, though I like De Caprio too but Brad will be better choice. God bless the Jolie-Pitt family.

  • lol

    @zula: who are you talking to?

  • irma

    @just saying: I agree with you. MMS is my favorite movie of all time because Brad & Angie met on the set of that movie & now 5 years later 6 kids.God bless them.

    @anne marie: You are so wrong, Manliston movie ” Marley & Me was promoted as the puppy movie, then The Break Up which Vince V. pretty sure carried the box office appeal not chin chin. How many Directors & producers sought out Angelina’s service? Bunches & not only the best directors, they are also an award winning directors.

  • ManLESSton, I likely

    Ms.JOLIE4ever! @ 10/21/2009 at 3:38 pm
    Remember how ill-fitting the actress looked with Matt Damon in “The Good Shepherd”? This is a similarly troubling match. Jolie is just such a dominant presence in movies that she’s not easily compatible with many leading men. Then again, that could work favorably depending on what the Gucci’s marriage was like.
    This the perfect vehicle for Angie. The whole story that made the scandal was the Gucci wife. She was a gold digger and a force to behold. Both were charismatic people but she was the bigger personality. I saw an hour special on this done by Dominic Dunne. I hope she does it, she would be great in that role.

  • yolly

    @ManLESSton, I likely: I really do hope, she will do this movie & hope Brad will play opposite Angie.It’s about time for another Brangelina movie.

  • Oh never mind

    @Teri: Oh please! Cliniqua is INSANE and she knows it.

    Don’t forget that Marley & Me was based on a bestselling book with a large following (Twilight effect). As we can tell from the numbers on Couples Retreat vs. Sh!t Happens, Vince obviously carried The Break Up also.
    As I was reading about this Gucci movie I had to laugh. You know Nippy is sh!tting her pants and screaming at the ocean because NO ONE is calling her to be in their movie.

  • new

    When you have a movie with a dog as the central character, you have a built in audience. People go see the movie because of the dog, certainly NOT to see Jen.

    Note, look at Marley and Me’s DVD cover, it’s the dog’s picture. Jennifer Aniston’s picture is NOWHERE to be seen.

  • OMG

    @yolly: unfortunately I think you are serious. Angelina has said this like a million times. THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER BRANGELINA MOVIE. Angelina said NO to that idea. MAMS was not a serious movie. Maybe Angie will do an animated movie with him but NEVER a serious Dramatic role. Brad Pitt is not a dramatic actor. PERIOD! It was bad enough she had to make an Action movie with him and I’m sure she’s regretting ever agreeing to do that movie NOW.

    BTW, I’m wondering why the Breakup Predictions always give a deadline. “they will breakup after awards season, or after he /she prmotes a movie” NEWFLASH! Angie’s career is going to skyrocket when A REAL brangelina breakup is happens. I honestly think he played it safe in the beginning of Brangie because he was afraid of what might happen to his precious career but If dumping Americas sweetheart only made their careers better I don’t see a problem when the end of Brangie happens. I do see an end to Manistons career if she no longer has the Angie to blame for everything. Angie and Brad’s careers thrived in the midst of controversy.

  • ManLESSton, I likely

    @Angelina’s Nipples: And Nippy shows her bare p*ssy on her movie set to her costar. So your point is?…

  • majo


    #1 qué les pasa? las mujeres con hijos también trabajan!
    no sólo por el dinero, sino por la satisfacción personal que representa desarrollar tus habilidades y tu potencial

    #2 Acaso los hijos son SOLO DE LAS MADRES?? si no recuerdo mal Angelina hace casi 2 AÑOS que no trabajaba hasta que filmó Salt(sólo 3 meses)
    BP nunca paró de filmar y es más la de tarantino la hizó cuando ella recién había parido MELLIZOS!! entoncés no leí críticas porque él trabajará mucho

    #3 es obvio que estas pelis que SUPUESTAMENTE VA A FILMAR no serán todas juntas

    y si… opinar es gratis


  • yay

    I really want Brad and Angie work together again. They have the best chemistry.

  • gracie

    It hasn’t even been confirmed that Angie is doing these two movies but all the Jenretareds with Christine and Anne Marie as the leaders of the pack are ready on her thread displaying their ugliness. You losers can analyse Angie’s movies or bang your heads from now to infinity, it won’t change a thing. Angie is in HOT demand because she is a great actress and very talented, her records speakes for itself, her numerous awards ranging from Oscar, Golden Globe, Saturn Awards, Critics Choice Awards, People’s Choice and many many others (over 50 norminations and 23 won), shows the incredible actress she is and movie makers who continue to pursue her knows this too. She is not No 1 and the highest paid actress because she makes lousy movies. I can assure you that any movie she is in with other actors, 90% of movie lovers will go and watch it because of Angie. People love her including you lonies but you will not admit it. You pounce on her every thread and you stay put until JJ posts a new thread and you all move on to the new thread. You’re all on her thread 24/7, 365 days without a time out or break to the loo. That’s the kind of hold she has on you losers and you’re not even fans.


    Angelina is a movie star. She doesn’t have to beg for movie roles. The movie roles come to her. That is why she is the most powerful celebrity on the planet. Go Angie!!!

    Changeling only grossed 112 Million dollars worldwide….


    ONLY $112 mil? Kimmel Entertainment would KILL for some of that $112 million, since they are still shaking their heads in astonishment over the COMPLETE loss of their investment in Management. You are a fan of a woman who couldn’t even sell a measly ONE, that’s ONE million $ in US tickets, so I really don’t think the word ONLY should ever escape your lips in a discussion of anyone else’s box office grosses. THERE IS NO BIGGER BOX OFFICE FAILURE THAN MANISTON!

    B!tch could strip naked in the street and she still wouldn’t be able to even GIVE tickets away.

    Well I go and see any film Brad and Angelina do as they are great actors. Can’t wait for the movies to be out. Thank you JJ.
