Ridley Scott’s biopic of Patrizia Reggiani’s tragic marriage to Maurizio Guicci tells the story of Gucci family and they are outraged at the House of Gucci film starring Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, and others.
The film is currently in production and directed by Sir Ridley Scott. It tells the story about Patrizia Reggiani’s doomed marriage to Maurizio Guicci. After hiring a hitman, Reggiani was convicted in 1998 of his assassination.
Gucci family members were shocked to see paparazzi photos of the set. It also features Al Pacino as Aldo Gucci who was a key player in the growth of the fashion label internationally and Jared Leto playing Paolo Gucci who helped create the famous double G logo.
Patrizia Gucci was Maurizio’s second cousin. She said that the photos of Leto wearing a lilac suit and a bald head were “horrible, terrible.” “I feel still offended.”
She said that Pacino’s portrayal as Aldo Gucci wasn’t very attractive. “My grandfather was very tall, with blue eyes, and very elegant. Al Pacino is playing him, but he isn’t very tall. This photo shows him as being fat, short and with sideburns. It’s shameful that he doesn’t look like him.”
She stated that the family was “truly sad.” “The family is my representative. They want to steal the identity of a family in order to make a profit and increase the income of Hollywood…. Our family has privacy, an identity. While we can discuss everything, there is a limit to what we can share.”
The movie, which is due to be released in October, is based upon the book by Sara Gay forden, The House of Gucci – A Sensational Story of Murder Madness, Glamour, and Greed.
It tells the story Reggiani who hired a hitman in order to kill Maurizio Guicci outside his Milan office in 1995, after he had left her for another woman. Reggiani was nicknamed the “Black Widow” during her trial by the Italian media. She had served 17 years of her sentence, which was 29 years. Guccio Guccio, the great-grandson of Guccio Guccio, was 46 at the time of his death.
Reggiani answered a reporter’s question about why she hadn’t shot her ex-husband by herself. She said that her eyesight was not good. “I didn’t want it to miss.”
Dariusz Wolski (cinematographer) described the film earlier this week as a “soap operetta”. He told Indie Wire that the film is a “soap opera” that was “a bit kitschy, funny and tragic.” “With a crazy cast.”
Scott’s wife Giannina Facio met the Gucci family to discuss a different project. This was to be focused on the company’s global expansion under the leadership of Paolo Gucci, the grandfather Aldo and father Patrizia Gucci.
Patrizia Gucci says she tried to contact Facio about House of Gucci but was not contacted. The Guardian reached out to Scott’s production company in an attempt to get comment.
On-set photos from the film were released. Driver and Gaga are seen in scenes where they stand by the Alpine ski slopes and get married.
Marco Bizzarri, Gucci’s president and chief executive, stated to Women’s Wear Daily, that the fashion label allowed the film “total creativity freedom”. He stated that Gucci was collaborating with MGM, Scott’s production company Scott Free Productions and providing access to its historical archive for wardrobes and props.
Salma Hayek was married to Francois–Henri Pinault. She is the chief executive chairman and chief executive of Kering.
Deadline reported that Facio has been in touch with Facio for over 20 years about the Gucci project. “Now it’s happening, and she is part of it. Rid and me are delighted.”
