Lady Gaga is attached to star as Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, in a long-gestating film which Ridley Scott has once again committed to direct.
The story follows the late Maurizio Gucci, grandson of the Gucci founder Guccio Gucci, as he becomes heir to the family empire. His ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani, was tried and convicted of orchestrating her ex-husband’s assassination on the steps of his office in 1995. She served 18 years before being let out of jail in 2016.
The project is the first Lady Gaga has attached herself to since her Best Actress nomination in “A Star Is Born”. Roberto Bentivegna is penning the script based on the Sara Gay Forden book “The House of Gucci”.
Scott will first direct “The Last Duel” starring Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Jodie Comer and Ben Affleck, and will then quickly move onto this. Giannina Scott produces.
