The first trailer for House of Gucci, has arrived. Directed by Ridley Scott, the film will star Lady Gaga as Patrizia Reggiani, Maurizio Gucci’s ex-wife.
Maurizio Gucci is played by Adam Driver, while Jared Leto, Al Pacino, Selma Hayek, and Jeremy Irons also feature in the film’s cast.
“It was a name that sounded so sweet, so seductive, synonymous with worth, style, power, but that name was a curse, too,” says Lady Gaga’s voice, opening the trailer.
Patrizia Reggiani, Maurizio’s wife at the time, was convicted of orchestrating his death after he’d had an affair.
Reggiani went to prison for 18 years. She became known as “Black Widow” and was released in 2016.
The film is based on a book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed. Written by Sara Gay Forden and released in 2001, the book dives into the murder as well as the history (and DRAMA) of the Gucci family.
House of Gucci was filmed earlier this year in Europe. It’s due to land in Australian cinemas on Thursday, 24th November.
