After winning the Best Music Award for A Star Is Born at the Oscars and Best Actress in the American Horror Story series, Lady Gaga's Hollywood journey continues. Curated by Ridley Scott, director of blockbusters such as Gladiator, Alien, Telma and Louise, Lady Gaga will play the role of Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, in the upcoming feature film dedicated to the Gucci family.
Nicknamed the black widow, Patrizia Reggiani was convicted of having ordered the murder of her ex-husband, the grandson and heir of Guccio Gucci, founder of the Italian fashion house, who was found dead at his home with three bullets in the back of his neck. This passionate crime occurred after the abrupt end of their marriage, hastened by the meeting of a younger woman. Patrizia Reggiani spent 18 years behind bars and came out in 2016 for good behavior.
Ridley Scott, who has been working on this project since 2009, first envisioned Angelina Jolie as the Black Widow, but he finally chose to offer it to the singer. We do not know, however, who will take over the role of Maurizio Gucci, which had been assigned to Leonardo DiCaprio in the first version of the project.
This is not the first time that Ridley Scott has decided to tackle a grand family saga against a background of an immense fortune. In 2017, he did a project about the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, grandson of the oil tycoon of the same name, through the eyes of his mother, embodied by Michelle Williams, in All the Money of the World.
Is it possible that the singer is coming for her next Oscar?
