Angelina Jolie and Leonardo DiCaprio are apparently all set to star in the upcoming Gucci film. Director Ridley Scott is the genius behind the flick which may see Leo playing Maurizio Gucci, the Italian businessman who turned around the fashion empire in the 1980s. While Angelina will play ‘The Black Widow’ herself, Mrs Gucci, who is still serving her 29 year jail sentence after she was convicted of hiring a hitman to kill her husband in 1995. This is one film we can’t wait to see.

The Spice Girls

The Spice Girls

Last week we told you The Spice Girls we’re planning their own musical, and now it’s official, not only are they developing the show they are launching their own TV talent show to find the stars. The show – rumoured to be called ‘Spice Idol’ – will see the singers sit on an ‘American Idol’-style judging panel and dispense criticism and advice to hundreds of hopefuls. A source told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “This is an idea which appeals to all of the original members. It’s a fantastic new way to broaden out the Spice franchise and cash in on their personalities, their story and their songs. The girls would have to work intensely on a TV show for a short period of time. But then they can launch a musical which could run for months or even years.”  Years? Please no. What do you think? Do you want to get in on the Spicy action?

Leona better watch out, we hear that Alexandra Burke has her sights set on the US and has enlisted the help of Whitney Houston.  After being praised by Clive Davis – the music mogul who helped pop stars Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson and Whitney rise to fame –  has promised to help her become a success Stateside, Alex has decided to hop across the pond. A source said: “Alexandra was celebrating her number one record with friends and family. She got a huge shock when Clive appeared and said he thinks she’s the future of pop music.” The source added to Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper: “Clive may even get her to sing at his pre-Grammys party – it would be massive exposure given that the who’s who of the music world are attending.”
