Lady Gaga is back on the big screen! The singer-songwriter has joined the cast of Ridley Scott’s new movie about the Gucci family. Gaga will reportedly play the role of Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, who was the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci. Maurizio Gucci was shot to death in 1995, and Patrizia Reggiani was convicted of ordering his murder in 1998. She ultimately served 18 years for her role in his shooting death before being released in 2016.
According to reports, the movie‘s script is written by Roberto Bentivegna and is based on Sara Gay Forden’s book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed. Ridley Scott will reportedly co-produce the film with wife Giannina Scott and Scott Free Productions.
This is the first major film Lady Gaga has booked since A Star Is Born, for which she earned a Best Actress Oscar nomination in 2019 for her role as Ally. She even won an Oscar for the film’s duet- Shallow, which won the best original song. Gaga has also shown off her acting talents on the small screen, appearing in season 6 of American Horror Story.
