Lady Gaga hit the big screen with A Star is Born just last year – for which she nabbed an Oscar – and now she’s gearing up for her next role in a film about the Gucci family. The plot focusses on the murder of heir Maurizio Gucci – founder Guccio Gucci’s grandson – and Lady Gaga will be starring as his ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani who was convicted of the assassination.
The script is based upon Sara Gay Forden’s book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour and Greed and the film will be co-produced by Ridley Scott, who also directed All The Money in the World about the Getty family kidnapping. We assume there won’t be any musical numbers in this one (though if anyone can work one in, it’s Gaga). The film won't be out for a couple of years at least, considering production hasn't even begun, but we loved her moving performance in A Star is Born and we can’t wait to see her play a more sinister role.
