Although Lady Gaga already had some acting experience under her belt before appearing alongside Bradley Cooper in A Star is Born, that movie was definitely the best example yet of her acting abilities. It’s been a little over a year since this version of A Star is Born was released, but the singing superstar has finally found her next movie, and it’ll see her working with director Ridley Scott.
The filmmaker behind the likes of Alien, Gladiator, American Gangster and more is directing a movie about the Gucci family fashion dynasty, namely the murder of Maurizio Gucci, the grandson of the company’s founder, Guccio Gucci. Lady Gaga has been tapped to play Patrizia Reggiani, Maurizio’s ex-wife. Patrizia was tried and convicted for arranging Maurizio’s murder in 1995.
Per Deadline, this movie, which is being written by Roberto Bentivegna, is based on the novel The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed, which was penned by Sara Gay Forden. Ridley Scott plans to tackle the yet-to-be-officially-titled movie after he’s finished with The Last Duel, and he’ll also produce alongside wife/actress/frequent collaborator Giannina Scott, and Scott Free Productions. The Scotts are shopping this movie to Disney/Fox first, as their production company, Scott Free, has a first-look deal there.
