If you fell in love with Lady Gaga’s tear-jerker of a performance in A Star Is Born then brace yourself for her next on-screen beauty.
Teaming up with Sir Ridley Scott (the genius behind Alien and Blade Runner) on his new project set to retell the murder of Guccio Gucci’s grandson Maurizio Gucci, Gaga is locked to play Maurizio Gucci’s ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani.
The story (and real-life event) goes as so; when Maurizio Gucci and Patrizia Reggiani first married, they skyrocketed to being one of Italy’s biggest power couples. Yep, think the high fashion and Italian version of The Great Gatsby. They were unequivocal socialites. After leaving his wife in 1985 for a younger woman though, Gucci was subsequently gunned down outside his office several years later. His ex-wife, who has since been donned “The Black Widow”, was later convicted for hiring a hitman to murder him.
Ridley’s movie is set to get into all the juicy details of the fashion dynasty and will be based on the book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story Of Murder, Madness, Glamour and Greed written by Sara Gay Forden. If you haven’t read this one, it questions Patrizia Reggiani’s motives for arranging her ex-husband’s murder or, whether she was actually involved at all.
Filming is yet to commence on this so stay tuned for updates.
