Jared Leto is unrecognizable as Paolo Gucci in the poster and the trailer for House of Gucci. The Ridley Scott film is scheduled to come out November 24.
The film stars Lady Gaga as Patrizia Reggiani, Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci, Jeremy Irons as Rodolfo Gucci, Al Pacino as Aldo Gucci, and Salma Hayek as Pina Auriemma.
Based on the book of the same name, Reggiani was convicted of orchestrating the assassination of Maurizio, her ex-husband and former head of the Gucci fashion house. She did 16 years for her role in the killing.
The family does not support the film. Via AP, Patrizia Gucci said:
We are truly disappointed. I speak on behalf of the family. They are stealing the identity of a family to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system. Our family has an identity, privacy. We can talk about everything. but there is a borderline that cannot be crossed.
She saved special anger for Al Pacino’s depiction of her grandfather:
My grandfather was a very handsome man, like all the Guccis, and very tall, blue eyes and very elegant. He is being played by Al Pacino, who is not very tall already, and this photo shows him as fat, short, with sideburns, really ugly. Shameful, because he doesn’t resemble him at all.
