Alien director Ridley Scott has assembled a crackerjack cast for Gucci: Robert De Niro!... Al Pacino!... Adam Driver!… Jared Leto!… and now comes word that Lady Gaga has been added to the cast in the MGM drama that is set to start production in Italy next March.
The movie is based on the book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden, and tells the story of the Gucci family fashion dynasty and the murder of the grandson of founder Gucci Gucci. Gaga will play Patricia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, who was tried and convicted of orchestrating her ex-husband’s assassination on the steps of his office in 1995. She served 18 years before being let out of jail in 2016.
