Gucci – TBD (Pre-Production)
Another major project featuring Jared Leto is Ridley Scott’s upcoming true crime drama Gucci, which will follow Lady Gaga’s Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, who was convicted in the 1990s of orchestrating a murder-for-hire plot that resulted in the death of the heir to the Gucci brand. The real-life Reggiani served 29 years in prison for he role in the death of her former husband and was let out in 2016. In addition to Lady Gaga, the movie will also see Adam Driver, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Jack Huston, Reeve Carney, and Leto in unspecified roles in what sounds like a star-studded and riveting crime thriller.
In October 2020, Deadline reported that Ridley Scott, who had just recently wrapped production on The Last Duel, would start filming Gucci in March 2021 on location in Italy, but a release date has yet to be announced at this time. Following his work on the murder-for-hire plot, Scott will then shift his focus to Kitbag, a drama based on the life of Napoleon Bonaparte with Joaquin Phoenix on board to portray the French general and eventual emperor. Expect to hear more on these projects in the coming months.
