Lady Gaga will be back on the big screen after landing the leading role in Ridley Scott’s new film, Gucci. Gaga will star alongside Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Adam Driver and Jared Leto as Patrizia Reggiani, an Italian socialite and ex-wife of Mauricio Gucci, who was convicted of organizing his assassination.
Reggiani and Gucci had two daughters together, Allegra and Alessandra, before Gucci left Reggiani for a younger woman in 1985 after 12 years of marriage. They were officially divorced by 1991. In March 1995, Maurizio Gucci was murdered and almost two years later in 1997, Reggiani was arrested for arranging the killing and was subsequently charged and sentenced to 29 years.
The film adaption of Gucci, written by Roberto Bentivegna, is based on the the book, The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden.
Gucci will begin filming March, 2021 in Italy, and is currently set for a November, 2021 release.
