Filmmaker Ridley Scott and Fox 2000 are in talks with Angelina Jolie about taking on the role of Patrizia Reggiano, who was sentenced to 29 years in prison for plotting to kill Gucci fashion dynasty head Maurizio Gucci, in the drama aptly entitled 'Gucci.'

According to Variety, 'Gucci' tracks the family-owned dynasty's halcyon era of the 1970s and 1980s, a glamorous period when the fashion business was moving $500 million in clothes, handbags and assorted product a year. It's currently on the fast track at Fox 2000.

With the script still in development, Scott is looking to find his male lead – and he has approached none other than Leonardo DiCaprio, who starred in Scott's thriller 'Body of Lies' last year.
