Gucci is an upcoming MGM film with Scott Ridley at its helm. This isn’t just any upcoming film; Lady Gaga herself will be starring in it. This role is right up Lady Gaga’s alley, and not only that, but it seems her co-stars might have an epic line up. First, let’s talk about movie details.
Ridley Scott and Giannina Scott
Ridley Scott, the director, is currently finishing up a period piece The Last Duel. He’s known for movies like Promethus (2012), Hannibal (2001), and Kingdom of Heaven (2005). Those being some of his most recent works, you most likely know him from the classic 1982 Blade Runner. There are many more films he’s been involved with, but overall, he is a well-seasoned professional in the movie-making business. A huge draw to anyone who’s a film buff. Ridley will be working with producing the film with Giannina Scott.
Giannina Scott is also known as Giannina Fico. We know her best for her role in Gladiator (2000) as Maximus’ wife. She has made appearances in Hannibal, Kingdom of Heaven, and Robin Hood (2010). Her work in being a producer shines in Matchstick Men (2003) and Concussion (2015). With experience garnered on both sides of the screen, she makes for a wonderful asset alongside her husband. They two have a history of working together, so this passion project should ignite.
Gucci and Gaga
The movie itself is based on the book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, and Greed written by Sara Gray Forden and published by William Morrow in 2001. It was then adapted to a script written by Roberto Bentivegna. Based on the real-life Gucci family, which the clothing brand is named after, the main character is Patrizia Reggiani (played by Gaga); she’s the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci. She was charged and convicted with her husband’s assassination in 1995 and served 18 years in prison. The tumultuous Gucci family has a tale to tell, and what way better than on the big screen?
This is Lady Gaga’s first role since A Star is Born (2018). Gaga has a fair track record when it comes to acting, and of course, performing. Whether it is music videos, The Sopranos, American Horror Story, or A Star is Born, she is giving it her all. We can’t wait to see what she does as Patrizia Reggiani!
So far we’ve told you things you probably already know if you love Gaga or Ridley. What we’re screaming about today is the potentially stacked cast. There is a pretty hefty list floating around with these guys being in talks with MGM for the movie. Those on the roster are Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jared Letto, Robert De Niro, Jack Huston, and Reeve Carney.
This is adding up to be a wild movie. Between the plot and people working on it (whether confirmed or potential), we are dying to see those cameras start rolling. Make sure to keep this one on your radar.
