Lady Gaga, Ridley Scott team up for film on Gucci family murder

Less than a year after her successful awards season run for A Star Is Born, Lady Gaga is diving back into the deep end of the movie industry. Her next endeavour will be a film about the Gucci family directed by Ridley Scott. The project also will tackle the assassination of Maurizio Gucci, the grandson of fashion empire founder Guccio Gucci. The Shallow singer is set to star as Patrizia Reggiani, Maurizio Gucci’s ex-wife, who served 18 years in prison – reduced from her original sentence of 29 for plotting his murder, which occurred in 1995 on the staircase to his office. Nicknamed “the Black Widow,” Reggiani was released from prison in 2016. Roberto Bentivegna is attached to adapt the screenplay based on the book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour and Greed by Sara Gay Forden. The Gucci movie has yet to find a distributor.
