Gucci film on Fox’s runway

Ridley Scott to direct pic on fashion family

Fox 2000 will fashion the story of the Gucci dynasty into a feature directing vehicle for Ridley Scott. Scott Free will produce with Giannina Facio.

Charles Randolph (“The Interpreter”) will write the drama once the WGA strike ends.

Fox 2000 got the project after Paramount Pictures put it in turnaround. The film will chronicle the wild and glamorous story of the Gucci family in the 1970s and ’80s, when its 153 shops moved $500 million in product annually.

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.

Fox 2000’s “The Devil Wears Prada” exec Carla Hacken brought the project in.

Scott is in Morocco, directing “Body of Lies” with Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe for Warner Bros. He’ll follow with the Crowe starrer “Nottingham” at Universal in March.
