Pop singer-songwriter, Lady Gaga has revealed the first look at her transformation into Patrizia Reggiani, Maurizio Gucci’s ex-wife, in the upcoming movie about his assassination.
On Tuesday, Gaga took to social media to post a picture with her co-star, Adam Driver, from the sets of the Ridley Scott directorial, which also happens to be one of the most awaited films of 2021.
She captioned the photo “Signore e Signora Gucci”, which translates to Mr. and Mrs. Gucci. In the picture, Adam Driver is sporting a cable knit turtleneck sweater and a separate white jacket fashioned around his waist, while Gaga is draped in gold chains and outfitted in all black with a white Cossack hat.
The movie, “House of Gucci”, which is currently filming in Europe, is based on the book ‘The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed’ by Sara Gay Forden. It dramatises the events around the assassination of Guccio Gucci’s grandson, Maurizio. His ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani was tried and convicted for being the one behind Maurizio Gucci’s murder in 1995 after he left her for a younger woman. She served in prison for 18 years, where she gained the nickname Black Widow, before being released in 2016.
“House of Gucci” will be Gaga’s first film role, after her movie “A Star Is Born”, released in 2018, which was nominated for an Oscar. Adam Driver has also received two Oscar nominations for his roles in the movies “BlacKkKlansman” and “Marriage Story”.
Robert Bentivegna’s “House of Gucci” will also cast Al Pacino, Jared Leto and Jeremy Irons.
Fans are already hoping that this movie will go up for an Oscar nomination. I guess we’ll just have to wait and watch!
House of Gucci is currently set to release in theatres on November 24, 2021!
