House of Gucci: The Hollywood Story Behind Lady Gaga’s Gucci Movie
The family were less happy when it became apparent that the book was juicy cinematic material. Shortly after Forden’s publication of the book, Martin Scorsese expressed interest in an adaptation, and the family immediately voiced objections. New York Post reported at the time. Most recently, the family has spoken out against Scott’s production and the paparazzi images flooding the internet. “We are really disappointed,” Patrizia Gucci, a second cousin of Maurizio, told the AP last month. “I speak on behalf of the family. They steal the identity of a family to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system. “
Specifically, the family seems concerned about the film’s focus on Reggiani, but also the casting choices. “My grandfather was a very handsome man, like all Guccis, and very tall, with blue eyes and very elegant,” Patrizia Gucci told the AP. “He’s played by Al Pacino, who’s not that tall already, and this photo shows him as big, short, with sideburns, really ugly. Ashamed, because he does not look like him at all.
In March, an Italian photographer who sold several images of the shoot told me by email that while film crews generally try to keep paparazzi away, this crew was not “particularly” harsh “” about the presence of photographers. In addition, he explained that Scott had filmed on location in several areas of Rome, such as Piazza di Spagna and Via Condotti, which are almost impossible to completely close to the public. The photographer said the pictures didn’t cost much more than usual, “but hope is the last to die”, and added: “The point of this set is without a doubt the great cast, Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Al Pacino…. “In other words, the great American movie stars, one of our country’s biggest exports. Like Gucci, the film knows exactly what it’s selling.
