Academy Award winner Lady Gaga is set to star in Ridley Scott's upcoming film about the Gucci dynasty, and the murder of Maurizio Gucci, the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci.
Gaga, who was last seen in A Star Is Born (2018), will portray Patrizia Reggiani, ex-wife of Maurizio. Patrizia had been abandoned after 12 years of marriage by Maurizio in 1985 for a younger woman. She was later tried and convicted of orchestrating her ex-husband's assassination on the steps of his office in Italy in 1995.
She gained the nickname of Black Widow during the trial and served 18 years before being released from prison in 2016.
Based on Sara Gay Forden's book, The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed, the film adaptation has been penned by Roberto Bentivegna. This will be the second successive book adaptation about a famous crime to be helmed by Scott, who last directed the 2017 film, All the Money in the World.
