As if it were a fashion runway in Italy, Lady Gaga and actor Adam Driver published on social networks the first images of Ridley Scott’s next film, House of Gucci.
“Signore e Signora Gucci,” Gaga wrote in a tweet along with the image of what would be one of the film’s filming sets. Dressed quite elegantly, Driver (Maurizio Gucci) and singer (Patrizia Reggiani) will bring to life one of the most controversial – and famous – marriages of the 90s, which had the misfortune to end in tragedy.
In this new adventure, Scott, renowned director for creating works such as Alien (1979), Blade Runner (1982), Gladiator (2000), Prometheus (2012), and Alien: Covenant (2017), will embark on a new trip to narrate the history of the last years of the Gucci marriage.
The plot of the film, based on the book by Sara Gay Forden, will focus on the last years of Maurizio Gucci who, in 1995, was murdered by a hitman.
At that time, the culprit was Patrizia Reggiani who, in an unimaginable public trial, was accused of having hired the hitman to end Gucci’s life. During the trial, she was called the “Black Widow” for her role in the crime. The motives? Previously, in 1991, the famous businessman had divorced Reggiani to go on an adventure with a younger woman.
It is not the first time that Gaga has participated in an award-winning film. Previously, in 2018, the singer was nominated for the 2018 Oscars after her participation in A Star Is Born. In turn, Driver was nominated for “Best Actor” in Marriage Story.
If there are no problems during the final stages of filming and production, House of Gucci would premiere on November 24 of this year.
