A spokeswoman for the Gucci brand, which is now owned by PPR, said Tuesday she knew nothing of the project and that the company was not involved.
Scott, whose credits include "Alien," "Blade Runner," "Gladiator" and the current hit "American Gangster," starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, will coproduce the film with Facio. No word yet on who might play Maurizio — let alone the likes of Domenico De Sole or Tom Ford. But given there's no script and a Writers Guild strike, audiences shouldn't hold their breath for the project to hit the big screen. It's more likely they'll get Gucci's wait-listed Aviatrix Boston bag before that happens.
