Lady Gaga Set to Star in Ridley Scott's Gucci Murder Movie

Lady Gaga Set to Star in Ridley Scott's Gucci Murder Movie
Oscar-winning actress/singer Lady Gaga (""A Star is Born") is set to star in Ridley Scott's upcoming movie about the Gucci family fashion dynasty and the murder of the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci. Scott will direct from a script penned by Roberto Bentivegna based on the the book "The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed" by Sara Gay Forden.

Gaga will play Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, who was abandoned after 12 years of marriage in 1985 for a younger woman. She was convicted for hiring a hitman to kill her estranged husband outside his Milan office in 1995. Maurizio Gucci was at one time head of the fashion label. The Italian socialite, who had two children with the fashion boss, served 18 years before her release in 2016. In an attempt to get the verdict overturned, her two daughters argued a brain tumour had affected her behaviour. Reggiani was nicknamed the Black Widow by the Italian press.

The film has been in the works for more than a decade, and Angelina Jolie was in talks to star as Reggiani.

In the meantime, Ridley Scott is directing the historical drama "The Last Duel" starring Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Adam Driver.
