Lady Gaga versatility is superb and no artist in her generation can equate that. From being the controversial and fashionable pop superstar, now she made a break in the movie industry. Truly Lady Gaga is the jack-of-all-trades in the music industry.
Whispers are circulating that Lady Gaga is reportedly had a secret deal to be the star in a true-crime film about the Gucci family, the house behind the Italian luxury brand in fashion industry. Inspired from the novel “The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed”.
Director Ridley Scott is set to make the picture into a reality which will follow the murder of Guccio Gucci’s grandson Maurizio Gucci and the aftermath of the death. It is allegedly to be filmed before 2020 and the film should arrive in theaters on Thanksgiving 2021 or in home streaming services due to the pandemic. Ridley Scott will be the director of this highly-anticipated film.
It seems that Lady Gaga is going to have her comeback to the big screen. After her award-winning and her Oscar-nominated performance in Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born, Gaga is reportedly to star to another movie project, and this one’s linked to one of fashion’s most notable families.
The superstar is in negotiations to star in a film about the Gucci family, focused on the murder of fashion designer Guccio Gucci’s grandson Maurizio Gucci. Gaga would play Patrizia Reggiani, Maurizio’s ex-wife who was tried and convicted of plotting his assassination in 1995, according to Deadline. She was in jail for 18 years before being released in 2016.
News of Gaga’s casting was made publicized last November 2019 but last April 8, noises were heard and made it to the headlines that MGM bought rights to the drama, which is set to premiere on Thanksgiving 2021. Director Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise) will helm the film and produce with wife Giannina Scott. Roberto Bentivegna will pen the screenplay based on Sara Gay Forden’s book, The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed.
And true enough, this wouldn’t be the first time Gaga’s name has once again related and attached to a fashionable screen adaptation. Last 2016, she was rumored to be star in the filming of Donatella Versace in Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, but the role ultimately went to Penélope Cruz. We cannot deny the fact that Gaga can pull off the role.
It smells another acting achievement for Gaga and does this mean we could have another Oscar nomination for Gaga in 2022? We will see.
