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.

    if angie agrees to the Gucci movie i would totally support it!! not so sure abot LeoD though??? he seems.., well i can see why some are picking LD because the early pics i saw of them when they were first together, Gucci had a sort of boyish look which LD still has. makeup and special effects can portray him in later years.

  • Gia

    SALT,The Tourist,Gucci & Scarpetta all lined up & attached to Angie’s name next year, very exciting for all of us fans. The best part, she never even has to auditioned, they offered it to her. That’s the power of Angie. That goes to Brad too remember IB? Good things happen to good people.

  • hag

    i would LOVE it if brad portrayed Gucci. i soo want to see angie and brad in a movie together!!

    Too funny. My bad!!!!! Hahahaha

    COULD Jennifer Aniston be about to take her career in a different direction?

    The actress, 40, is said to be “disappointed” by the lackluster performance of her movie Love Happens so is apparently looking to take on roles that’ll challenge her as an actress.

    And the best part? She might even cut her hair!!

    “Jen is disappointed at the reaction to Love Happens and accepts she may be the problem,” says a source close to the star. “She wants to carry on producing romantic comedies but as an actress she is seeking out roles where she can really change people’s perceptions of her. She may even cut her hair!

    Maybe a break’s in order?

    what ever happend to Angelina and Brad’s HBO deal

  • hag

    AGAIN!!!

  • hag

    manny may not cut her hair, but the most recent pic of her in a car with “a male friend” who looked like an “adult” star, showed her nose yet again chiseled and her hair a darker blonde!!! would this vain, middle-aged woman dare to go back “to her roots” as a brunette!!!??????

  • CLINIQUA

    Mayer celebrated his 32nd b-day on Thursday in NYC. No Maniston to be found.
    .
    LMAO at Man cutting her hair. I’ve always thought she was the ‘type’ who went blonde simply to cover-up her ethnic background. In other words she dies or shaves all of her dark/black facial and body hair, she bleaches her own dark brunette hair, purportedly wears contacts, and tans like Malibu barbie. It’s all to erase the big nosed, big hipped Greek she once was. Now that she’s essentially had a face transplant, and with her new cosmetic procedures (Mcfillerface, restylane duck bill mouth, and 4th rhinoplasty), I think she looks sufficiently NON-ethnic now, so she might let herself go darker. Darker hair is fine for girls who don’t resemble Telly Savalas or Dustin Hoffman, but if you do, you must be blonde. Now that she’s changed her mug, shemight be brave enough to try being a brunette. LOL

  • an oldie

    I saw OK! cover at the supermarket today. LOL at the title: John is all mine (or something like that) with a picture of Filler Face gazing lovingly at Peeboy. She can relax because nobody wants her John anyway.

  • CLINIQUA

    ‘an oldie,’ I saw that cover – and as soon as I did, I knew it was a Maniston/Huvane special. They fed OK that phony story (plant & deny), and sanctioned that pic to go with it (it’s one of her better ones – which isn’t saying much, but that’s how you know it was a plant more than anything – they use a photo from close to two years ago)
    .
    Matter of fact, if you look back on all Maniston’s plant & deny stories, you can tell which ones she and Huvane are behind by the pics they feed to the rags along w/ the story. They’re so obvious. lol

    Pfffft. X can’t afford to take a break that would be long enough to let the stench from her last 2 bombs fade. She’ll be 41 in 4 months. Unfortunately for the rest of the world X appears to subscribe to the theory that a rolling stone gathers no moss. Where as the rest of us just want the “stone” to be a boulder and roll OVER her.
    .
    Oh yeah…X cut her hair? Not bloodly likely. If she did that, then what would she use to hide her chin and nose? You and I know a brown paper bag would do a better job, but for some reason X just won’t do us that favor…actually…a PLASTIC BAG would be the ultimate…

  • hag

    with all the cosmetic procedures Manny has had, she may now think she looks good enough to cut her hair. have you seen her latest pic in the car with “her adult-film-star-looking friend”?? she has had another rhinoplasty, we already know she uses fillers and botox, lip injections. but the problem for Manny is that she is becoming unrecognizable, just like jennifer grey.

  • http://justjared dina#1

    Good evening to all BAMPZSKV fans. I hope everyone had a good day.

    I thought she was going on an adventure? What did she do go to Walmart and come back? She is to insecure to be away for fear no one will miss her. Oh gawd she will get an Oscar when she cuts her hair. You know how the Academy loves when an actor changes his/her looks. That is except for Brad in CCoBB. Peace

  • mimi

    It sounds like Monica Belluci was meant to play that role.
    .
    Plus Angelina is not good with working with guys. She has to take all the attention, like she did to Matt Damon in the Good Shepherd.

  • mslewis

    @nanna: What HBO deal? Haven’t heard this one.

    @mimi: Maybe so but Monica, beautiful as she is, can’t carry a movie on her own. She may be a star in Europe but nobody in America knows who she is. And, yes, Angelina did outshine Matt Damon in “Good Shepherd.” Angelina outshines just about everybody. The woman is a true beauty and nobody can take their eyes off her. Not her fault.

    @an oldie: So, Jennifer is “disappointed” that her movies haven’t done well lately!! Well, it took her long enough to realize people (even her fans) are sick of the same old, same old!! And she might cut her hair?? SHUT UP!! If that woman every cuts that hair, I’ll stand in Times Square, naked!!

  • mslewis

    @briseis: I believe the DVD release will be December 19.

  • mslewis

    @Goya: Without looking it up, I don’t think that is correct. I believe “Tree” was filmed BEFORE “Benjamin Button.” It has been in the “can” for quite a long time with the director refusing to release it until he is satisfied with it.

  • Goya

    My bad mslewis. I blame the flu shot.

    TCCOBB was filmed in the first 1/2 of 2007, then Brad did “Burn After Reading” 8-10/2007, then after the writer’s strike he did “Tree of Life in early 2008 then “Inglourious Basterds from 10/1/2008-2/15/2009. So BP hasn’t shot a film for 8 months, not 1 and 1/2 years. He was off from Christmas through the award season.

    Of course, throughout that time period BP was to do “State of Play” and “Moneyball” but those films went by the wayside.

  • groundcontrol

    Shiloh was less than a year during Benjamin Button – remember how young she looked shooting her scene. It was also when Angie went to Vietnam to get Pax. And Angie was pregnant with the twins when they were in Texas for Tree and then Shiloh was almost 2. That’s how I remember things rather than by dates.

  • groundcontrol

    Brad and Angie were considering doing an HBO series based on humanitarian workers around the world or maybe a specific area.

    Brad and Ed Norton were also planning a cable – maybe HBO – mini-series on Lewis and Clark.

    Both sounded interesting to me.

    That is an average take at each theater of $39.60.

    ————————
    Bellucci sucks as an actress. She is fairly good in french comedy and that’s it. As an actress she is overrated and is a better model.
    .
    In drama she sucks and her only relevance is attached to the fact that she likes to drop all of her clothes off in movies and like the starck nakedness that many french movies offer. She rarely fits in the US type of movies. If she was, she would have blown away a long time ago, just like Catherine Zeta did or even peneloppe Cruz did to a lesser extent.
    .
    Plus she has zero charisma, no international presence to carry a movie even if she is extremely sensual and beautiful and she lacks warmth, is conceited and as far as i am concerned is a c*nt since she publicly and partienately back Roman Polansky back and pleads for his release to France.
    .
    There is more to Italy than this actress. If they want an italian, there are other fine italian actresses than this snob !

    .
    Me think even Peneloppe Cruz, who like, many Spanish actresses can easily portray another latine one like an italian would be a better choice than Monica Snob Bellucci

  • Some Bunny

    I hope that Angelina Jolie does take on this role. She is such a great actress. No offense to K.W. but she was cheated the Oscar for best actress 2009, and I’d love to see her win it some time in the future. Really, I think I just want to see her in more movies because I really love how she gets into her character, and captures the attention of the audience. Thats talent, no other actress/actor has that appeal.

    Not So Blind Item:

    Despite the fervent attempts by a former sit-com actress and her often overly zealous publicist (not excusing the rest of the complicit, easily bought entertainment media) to parlay her divorce infamy into a movie career, the public is clearly choosing not to play along; evidenced by her two latest implosions of the celluloid variety.

    To help her shoulder this massive sucker punch to her reputedly large ego, sources close to the lonely star have hinted that she is considering a commemorative tat ……..skeptics see this as nothing short of her latest attempt to stalk her arch nemesis…….’

    My sentiments exactly!!!! I did watch the Reader and Changeling and let me tell you K.W. performance did not even come close to Angies.
    KW was pretty much naked a lot in that film and just because she played a horrible character in a holocaust that automatically got her the Oscar!!!!! She got the Oscar because she was nominated so many times and never won!!! The Academy felt they owed her IMO.
    Anyway, I do hope Angie takes this role and show the world how talent she is.

    Brad will come to Japan with Tarantino to attend the Inglorious Basters’ Japan premier on the 4th of November.

  • purple poet

    Angelina’s “taking time off” was nonsense. And she was box office poison before Brad. A little supporting Oscar (that should have gone to Toni Collette or Chloe Sevigny ANYWAY) don’t mean sht. Lots of people win Oscars and then disappear. Guess it helps to bang your way up the ladder in hollywood.

    Even when she hooked up with Billy Bob he was a bigger star than her. She would be nothing without her crafting her whole image to the press. She was already starting it in the late 90s. Her hooking up with Brad Pitt she knew would up her status to the place she wanted it. She seems like such a cold person, incapable of love. I bet Brad Pitt is a puppett who is in love with her but she saw him as an opportunity. She wants to be the new Elizabeth Taylor and an icon. But Liz Taylor actually starred in a classic film. Angelina hasn’t starred in one film that will be a classic. She’s nothing if you think about the future. Just tabloid magnet, nothing more.

    But you people on this board worship her like she’s a God when she carries herself like trash, talks like trash, whores her life out like trash, contradicts herself like trash, and makes movies that are trash. She will not be remembered at all in the future. Just like Jennifer Lopez was trying to be the next Elizabeth Taylor when hooking up with Ben Affleck, Angelina is doing the same thing. And now look what happened to J Lo? She’s a has been. Same thing will happen to Angelina. Just watch.

I’ll bet she will come back here soon. probably changing her name.

    The woman will be driven over the edge by the time she turns 45. Mark my words. Britney’s downfall will be a journey to kindergarden in comparison.

    I can see the Cougar in the zone caught trying to buy s*x in some shady place in Hollywood where cheap gigolos are.

    I can definitely see another round of nasty golden shower and i can definitely picture her with several cats and dogs, smoking cigarettes after cigarettes with her new DD cup, her balloonish face and her overinflated lips a la Meg Ryan.

    Oh really purple? Why do you waste your time on here about someone you claim to dislike? Why preach on a Jolie fan thread? Are you a sh!t stirrer or what. I’ve never seen anyone so devoted on trying to get others to dislike a person as you. Jennifer is on her way to a has been because people simply don’t pay attention to her-like YOU. You can only play the hurt victim for so long until people get tired of it and just want you to move the on. So many other worthy females with children were dumped by their husbands and they have moved on, simply can’t pity Jen since she filed for the divorce and didn’t fight for her marriage. I’m not even sure why you still hold this hate for Angelina though, she was very single and didn’t chase anyone around the world to be with her. On the other hand why would you want Brad to stay in a marriage he wasn’t happy?

    purple poet @ 10/23/2009 at 11:43 am

    how long have you waiting waiting for the break up or some thing will happen to Angie? well, some thing did happen to Angelina in the past 5 years. She has a great man who adores her but according to you his not. She has 6 beautiful children but according they are not. She was nominated for best acting award for AMH & Changeling but according to you they were failures. Currently, she is being offered roles left & right but according to you Charlize is a better actress. I like Charlize. She is a good actress but unfortunatelly studio doesn’t think she is good enough for their movie. As for no one will remember Angie you don’t need to worry the fans will remember. according to some haters they refer Angie as the ET of her generation because she stole chin chin’s husband and whatever. so, regardless whether Angie will be remember for her acting, humanatarian, or homewrecker (that’s your opinion) I am sure Angie will be remembered. hey, you remember elizabeth taylor and when was the last time ET did a movie.

  • cee

    Why do we pay attention to the hens. The Jolie Pitss will never be over they have 6 kids and they love each other and their kids. They may do things separately from time to time but so what. Compared to other Hollywood couiples Brad and Angie are jopined at the hip. They are professional busy people who do their work when necessary together or apart. SO JP fans don’t let the hens fool you. The Jolie Pitt karma is so strong it is tearing the hens up.
