Oscar winner Jared Leto would love the opportunity to reunite with his Oscar winner colleague and Gucci House co-starring Al Pacino for a prequel to Ridley Scott’s recent real-life crime drama. Speaking with SiriusXM about his experience working with the iconic actor, Leto even suggested a title for his proposed prequel, which would reunite Leto and Pacino as father and son, Paulo and Aldo Gucci, once again.
“I would love to do a House of Gucci prequel. Just the Two of Us, you could call it. “
Directed by Ridley Scott and based on the 2001 book The House of Gucci: a sensational story of murder, madness, glamor and greed by Sara Gay Forden, Gucci House draws inspiration from the shocking true story of the family empire behind Italian fashion house Gucci. Spanning three decades of love, betrayal, decay, revenge, and ultimately murder, we see what a name means, what it’s worth, and how far a family will go to control.
With a star cast alongside Jared Leto and Al Pacino, including Lady Gaga as Patrizia Reggiani; Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci; Jeremy Irons as Rodolfo Gucci; and Salma Hayek as Giuseppina “Pina” Auriemma, Leto went on to describe his meeting with one of the greats of cinema, revealing that thanks to Leto’s unrecognizable appearance, Pacino had no idea who he was. was.
“The first day of filming he didn’t know it was me, and I walked up to him and said, you know, ‘hello’. And he kind of pushed me away. He thought I was just an Italian weirdo trying to talk to him or get his autograph or something. I’ve been up to him a couple of times and someone finally whispered, ‘It’s Paolo, it’s Jared over there. And he was like, ‘My son, my son,’ and he fell to the ground. He was just stunned. For this to happen with one of the greatest actors in the world was a great gift and gave me faith that if Al can believe in this guy then we all can. It was a boost of confidence at the start, and I loved working with him.
Leto’s transformative performance in Gucci House has earned him many praise and several accolades. The actor is expected to continue his penchant for disguise and change his appearance in his next film, Morbius, something the actor recently described as “kind of the perfect role for me.”
Courtesy of Sony, the film will feature Leto as one of Marvel’s most compelling and confrontational characters, transforming the actor into enigmatic anti-hero Michael Morbius. Suffering from a rare blood disease, Morbius has dedicated his life to healing himself and others, leading an experiment with dangerous consequences. While initially appearing as a sweeping success, Morbius’ unorthodox cure slowly turns out to be potentially worse than the ailment, turning the good doctor into a monster.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa, Morbius is scheduled for April 1, 2022.
