The family was less satisfied when the book turned out to be juicy cinematic material. Shortly after Forden published the book, Martin Scorsese expressed an interest in making an adaptation, and the family immediately expressed objections, the New York Post reported at that time. More recently, the family spoke out against Scott’s production and the paparazzi images flooding the internet. “We are really disappointed,” said Patrizia Gucci, Maurizio’s great-nephew. the AP said last month. “I speak on behalf of the family. They steal a family’s identity to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system. “
More specifically, the family seems to be concerned about the film’s focus on Reggiani, as well as the casting choices. “My grandfather was a very handsome man, like all Guccis, and very tall, blue eyes and very elegant,” Patrizia Gucci told the AP. “He’s played by Al Pacino, who’s not that big yet, and this picture shows him as fat, small, with sideburns, really ugly. Shameful, because he doesn’t look like him at all. “
In March, an Italian photographer who has sold several photos of filmmaking told me by email that while film crews usually try to keep paparazzi away, this crew has not been “particularly strict” about the presence of photographers. In addition, he explained that Scott has shot 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 photos are not much more expensive than usual, “but hope is the last to die,” adding, “The importance of this set is undoubtedly the great cast, Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Al. Pacino…. “In other words, great American movie stars, one of our country’s biggest exports. Like Gucci, the movie knows exactly what it’s selling.
