Martin Scorsese is trading in his Armani for a Gucci. The famed film director will direct "Gucci: A HouseDivided," an epic that takes a look at the Italian fashion dynasty. The film will be based on the novel by Gerald McKnight of the same name. Scorsese is currently preparing to shoot "Gangs of New York" in Rome starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

MORK GOES SCI-FI: When Steven Spielberg talks, Robin Williams listens. The energetic funnyman has taken a small role in Warner Bros. Pictures’ "A.I," after the director asked him to. Williams will serve as the film’s narrator.

Contrary to earlier reports, representatives for Williams confirmed that the actor has made no commitment to play Liberace in an independent biopic that will be directed by Philip Kaufman.

MY FAVORITE 'DAIRIES': Julie Andrews is in the last leg of talks to co-lead in Walt Disney’s "The Princess Diaries," directed by Garry Marshall. "Diaries" is about a rebellious 16-year-old Angeleno (Anne Hathaway) who is told that she is actually the princess of a Monaco-like European country. Andrews will play the girl's grandmother.
