Roberto Bentivegna (House of Gucci‪)‬ MovieMaker

    • TV & Film

House of Gucci went through several writers before the project found one who could do justice to the surreally messy story of the feuding Guccis.
Married producers Ridley Scott and Giannina Facio finally found the right writer for the job in Roberto Bentivegna, who said the key to cracking the story was not approaching it too seriously. 
In this episode, he talks about the role of comedy in the film, and the ruthless and elegant changes he had to make to the Gucci saga to tell his fun, breezy and at times tragic story. We also talk about a scene Jared Leto thought up on-set, writing an extra scene for Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons, and playing as a child near the site of the most violent movie in the film.
And we make fun of critics who think the movie is "unintentionally funny."
