Ridley Scott will act as the director based on the script by Roberto Bentivegna. Apart from the director, Scott also acts as a producer with his wife, Giannina Scott, and Kevin J. Walsh. Ridley Scott is also famous for his film ‘Blade Runner’ and also ‘Alien’.
The film, which s taking place in Europe, dramatizes the events surrounding the murder of Guccio Gucci’s grandson, Maurizio. Patrizia Reggiani was tried and convicted of orchestrating the murder of Maurizio Gucci in 1995 after he left her for a younger woman.
The film is based on a true story.
This news made several international media reports again about the story of Patrizia, who was the mastermind behind the murder of Maurizio in March 1995. The 72-year-old woman was sentenced to 26 years in prison for admitting that she hired a hitman to kill her ex-husband. Patrizia herself was released in 2014 after serving 16 years of detention. According to the Daily Mail report, Patrizia paid approximately 300 thousand euros (according to today’s exchange rate) to hire a hired sniper service. The New York Times reported that Patrizia admitted to her actions in 1998. Since then, the entire nation of Italy has nicknamed Patrizia as ‘The Black Widow’.
Patrizia and Maurizio themselves married in 1973. Both have two daughters, Allegra and Alessandra. Killed her ex-husband out of jealousy. Maurizio Gucci’s murder was not without reason. In May 1985, after 12 years of marriage, Maurizio was leaving Patrizia to be with another woman. Maurizio told Patrizia that he was going on a business trip. But he never returned home and in 1991, the two officially divorced.
The motive behind the murder
The Italian socialite was furious and frustrated with the way Maurizio used his wealth. Not only that, but Patrizia also wanted a larger amount of divorce money. The Guardian said that previously authorities offered 2.5 million pounds sterling and an annual fee of 650 thousand pounds sterling. But she did not accept it and asked for at least US $ 1 million per year. Patrizia also said that she was apprehensive that her children would feel unsafe not to inherit if Maurizio decided to marry again.
Patrizia was very angry with Maurizio, but she felt like she couldn’t do the crime herself. She then found someone who was willing to become a hired gun for Patrizia. The hitman is Benedetto Ceraulo, a pizza shop owner who is in debt. Benedetto managed to shoot Maurizio on the steps of his office just as he arrived.
For two years, the police could not solve the Maurizio murder case because there was no evidence. This case then found a bright spot, and finally, in 1997, Patrizia went to jail along with four other people, including Benedetto. The contract shooter was later sentenced to life imprisonment.
