Yesterday Lady Gaga shared a photo from the filming of Ridley Scott’s new film House of Gucci, about the twists and turns of the Gucci family in the 1980s and 1990s. The singer and actress got the role of the notorious socialite Patricia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci.

The role of the grandson of the founder of the House of Gucci, the last manager of the dynasty, is played by Adam Driver.
In 1995, Maurizio was killed on the doorstep of his office by a hitman commissioned by Patricia. She could not forgive him for betrayal and was afraid that her two daughters would have to share her husband’s inheritance with the new chosen one of Maurizio – Paola Franchi – and other potential heirs. The mistress in the film will be played by Camille Cotten, known for the French TV series “Ten Percent”.
This event is central to the plot of the film, and the literary basis of the script was the 2001 book by Sarah Gay Forden, House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamor and Greed. Other members of the Gucci family, Rodolfo (Maurizio’s father), Aldo (Maurizio’s uncle) and his son Paolo will be played by Jeremy Irons, Al Pacino and Jared Leto.
In 2019, Lady Gaga was approved for the role (by the way, the star has Italian roots). This is the first film project she has joined since A Star is Born. Recall that this work brought her an Oscar for the soundtrack Shallow.
In April 2020, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer acquired the rights to the film, after which the names of other members of the cast were revealed.
The real story of Patricia and Maurizio, which formed the basis of the film, continued to develop until recently. In 1998, Reggiani was found guilty and sentenced to 29 years in prison – then the press called her a black widow. Patricia’s stay in prison was also not devoid of dramatic events, but in 2016 she was released ahead of schedule for good behavior and is now not constrained by funds. What kind of heroine Lady Gaga turned out to be, we will see at the end of this year: the world premiere of House of Gucci is tentatively scheduled for November.
