A name to die for. A legacy worth killing for.

Murder, mystery, mayhem – and Lady Gaga.

You’ve heard it right, guys! Lady Gaga has an upcoming movie. Titled House of Gucci, this biographical crime drama film was directed by Ridley Scott. It is based on the 2001 book by Sara Gay Forden called The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed

The film follows the shocking true story of the family empire behind the Italian fashion house, how a relationship that started with love eventually turned to murder. 

In the House of Gucci, Lady Gaga plays the role of Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of late Italian designer and at one point, head of the Gucci fashion house, Maurizio Gucci (played by actor Adam Driver). Maurizio Gucci was shot and killed by a hitman a year after the couple’s divorce. Almost two years later, Patrizia was arrested and accused of hiring the hitman who killed Gucci.

In 1998, Reggiani was convicted of murdering her husband. She served 18 years in prison and was released in October 2016 on account of good behavior. Reggiani earned the nickname “Black Widow” courtesy of the Italian press. 

Watch the movie’s new trailer below:

In the clip above, Patrizia could be seen talking to her husband. She tells him, “Gucci’s not exciting, and everybody knows it.” Her husband Maurizio replies, “At least it’s my name, sweetie.”

Patrizia retorted while pointing at her ring: “Our name, sweetie.”

In a separate scene, Patrizia tells Aldo Gucci (played by veteran actor Al Pacino), “Gucci needs new blood.” Aldo seemingly replies, though in a different scene, “Gucci is what I say it is.” He added, “This is not a woman’s game. Remember that.”

House of Gucci also stars Jared Leto (as Paolo Gucci), Jeremy Irons (as Rodolfo Gucci), Salma Hayek (as Giuseppina “Pina” Auriemma), Mădălina Ghenea (as Sophia Loren), and Reeve Carney (as Tom Ford). Its theatrical release is scheduled on November 24, 2021.

House of Gucci is Lady Gaga’s second film. Her debut film in 2018 titled A Star is Born, earned her a best actress nomination and won her the best original song at the 2019 Academy Awards.

Happy viewing!
