Penelope Cruz is slated to portray Patrizia Reggiani in the movie
Actress Penelope Cruz is said to be in talks to play the murderous ex-wife of Gucci heir Maurizio Gucci. The film will be directed by Ridley Scott's daughter Jordan.
The Oscar winner is slated to portray Patrizia Reggiani in the movie.
Reggiani was jailed in 1998 for hiring a hitman to kill her husband four years after the couple officially divorced. Her daughters urged lawmakers in Milan, Italy to overturn their mother's conviction on the grounds a brain tumour had altered her personality, reports contactmusic.com.
The conviction was upheld, but Reggiani's sentence was reduced to 26 years.
Last year, she was offered a chance at parole, but refused stating, "I've never worked in my life and I'm certainly not going to start now."
