And although there is still no start date for filming, the singer will toss in another project. This time it will be in the skin of the widow of Maurizio Gucci.
The film will be based on the true crime organized Patrizia Reggiani, the wife of the magnate of fashion Maurizio Gucci, who was convicted of murdering her husband after he discovered that he had been unfaithful.

His losing streak didn’t end when his family pulled him out of the command. Two years later, he was murdered at the door of his office. Gaga will play the woman who gets revenge on her husband for having gone with someone younger for a supposed work trip. She organized the crime, and hired an assassin. The fact was followed by the press which gave Patrizia the nickname of black widow.
According to The Hollywood Reporterthe distributor, MGM bought the film. The film is based on the book by Sarah Gay Forden The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour and Greed.
MGM ordered the Gucci premiere on November 24, 2021, but the cast and the production plans are not yet defined. Ridley Scott will produce the film along with his wife Giannina.
“The story is so epic, the stakes are so high and the characters so richly drawn that we were determined to bring it to the big screen,” said co-producer.

The true Patrizia was released in 2016, after serving a sentence of 18 years. Five years before, offered him the parole, but he rejected it because he had to start working. “I’ve never done in my life and I will not do it now,” he said then. Patrizia was operated on for a brain tumor in 1992, and his daughters, who has always supported him, assured that surgical intervention had affected their personality.
Despite the fact that the firm wanted to move away from the drama, the day that Patrizia was sentenced, Tom Ford, who was the manager of the brand and grandson of the slain, exposed wives of silver in the stained glass window in the local of the brand in Florence, and became an emblem.
