Angelina Jolie and Leonardo DiCaprio to co-star in Gucci movie?

The pair are in talks to play fashion mogul Gucci and his ex-wife

Could Angelina Jolie and Leonardo DiCaprio be cinema’s next hottest couple?

According to reports, the pair are currently in talks to co-star as husband and wife in a new movie about the Gucci fashion dynasty.

Masterminded by Gladiator director Ridley Scott, the film would see Leo play Maurizio Gucci, the Italian businessman who turned around the fashion empire in the 1980s, before he was murdered in a plot executed by his ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani.

Angelina, who will next star in CIA thriller Salt, is being lined up to play the former Mrs Gucci, who is currently serving a 29-year jail sentence in Milan. Dubbed ‘The Black Widow’ by Italian press, she is convicted of hiring a hitman to kill her husband in 1995, in an effort to gain control of his multimillion-dollar estate.

Scott, who recently wrapped production on his remake of Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe, is hoping to sign both actors on for a start date in early 2010.

We reckon this calls for a movie with Brad Pitt and Leo’s regular screen wife, Kate Winslet!
