Ridley Scott to tell the story of the Gucci dynasty  ADAM LISAGOR  ·  DEC 04 2007

Ridley Scott and the company behind "The Devil Wears Prada" will bring the epic story of the Gucci dynasty to the screen. From Variety:

Just when Maurizio [Gucci] 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.

Plenty of potential for intrigue in the history of the House of Gucci in the 1970s and 80s, fleshed out by what is sure to be extravagant production design mixed with Scott's highly-stylized aesthetic will make this an interesting project to look out for.

Previous big screen forays into the world of high fashion include this year's vanity documentary "Lagerfeld Confidential" and the maligned Robert Altman romp "Prêt-à-Porter (1994)." (via The Tastemakers Society)
