Famed Hong Kong director Wong Kar Wai's – you have him to thank for 2013's The Grandmaster – next film will be about the murder of Maurizio Gucci, an Italian businessman and the grandson of Guccio Gucci, the founder of the fashion house Gucci. Margot Robbie is being rumoured to star in the still unnamed project.

Maurizio's ex wife Patrizia Reggiani – whom he married in 1972 and divorced in 1991 – was convicted for hiring a hitman to kill her husband in March 1995 (he was reportedly shot in the back of the head) and was sentenced to 16 years in prison. She was released on parole only two years ago. The former couple had two children together, Allegra and Alessandra Gucci.

According to The Guardian, Maurizio had left Reggiani for another woman called Paola Franchi and lived with her and her son for five years. Franchi said that Reggiani had stalked the couple and threatened to kill Gucci.
