GUCCI ON THE BIG SCREEN: Ridley Scott is ready to make the movie about the storied Gucci family his next big project. After finishing “Robin Hood” with Russell Crowe, the Hollywood producer hopes to wrap filming of the as-yet-untitled Gucci movie by the end of next summer for a release in early 2011. The first step is to “get the script absolutely right,” Scott said as he sat next to his girlfriend, Giannina Facio, at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art’s gala on Saturday night. “Well, we have a script. It’s kind of getting there.” Despite rumors swirling around that Angelina Jolie and Leonardo DiCaprio will star in the film, Scott said it’s too early to determine the cast. What’s certain is the amount of vast research behind the project, which was initiated by Facio, a Costa Rican actress of Italian descent who shares producer duties on the Gucci biopic. “I went and met with all the Gucci members. We read memoirs,” Facio said. Scott added, “It’s the history of the family and how it evolved.”
