You may have seen Lady Gaga’s recent Instagram post circling social media which at first glimpse looks like a Gucci campaign. This is our first peak at the new thriller film House of Gucci which tells the store of the murder of Maurizio Gucci by his ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani.
Reggiani, nicknamed the “Black Widow”, is accused and convicted for paying a hitman £260,000 to kill her ex-husband, Gucci, in March 1995 after he left her for another woman. Reggiani went on to serve 16 years and although she always plead her innocence, when asked by a reported why she hired a hitman instead of shooting herself, she replies “My eyesight is not so good, I didn’t want to miss.”.
This isn’t the first time Gaga has taken to the screen for powerful protagonist roles. This film will follow her award-winning performance in A Star is Born, and this time she is joined by Adam Driver who plays Gucci. Faces such as Jared Leto, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons and Camille Cottin we can also expect to see during the movie.
The film is directed by Ridley Scott and is based on Sara Gay Forden’s novel by the same name. Filming began a month ago in Rome, but this is the public’s first insight to the thriller. We still have a while to wait, however, as the film is set to be released on November 24th.
