APRIL 8 2020:

The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively reported that MGM is acquiring the rights to Ridley Scott’s Gucci, a true crime drama about the murder of Maurizio Gucci who once served as the head of the iconic fashion house. The media company is said to be in talks with Lady Gaga to star in the production. MGM was given full control to develop the story over Netflix and one other streaming service, partly because it offered the possibility of a theatrical release, which was a key factor in consideration for Ridley Scott, sources say. 

Gaga would return to the silver screen as Patrizia Reggiani, Gucci's ex-wife who was arrested and convicted of arranging the killing of her husband in 1998 after she found out about an affair. The script was developed by Roberto Bentivegna around a book by Sara Gay Forden named The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed, and published in 2001. The book takes the audience behind the scenes of the murder, the motives behind it, the trials and the passions, the power and the complexities of one of the greatest families in fashion. Maurizio Gucci was the grandson of Guccio Gucci, the founder of the eponymous fashion house, and lead the company in a declining period in the 1980s.

The release of the movie currently is set as Nov. 24, 2021. "Nothing typifies bold, audacious originality more than a film by Ridley Scott," says De Luca in a statement. "All of us at MGM are incredibly excited to be in business with Ridley, Giannina, Kevin and the whole team at Scott Free."

I wonder if she could record the theme song for the film? That would be cool! 

And while my mind is definitively still on Chromatica and I don't have any hype for this yet, I'm VERY happy that she's finally getting a challenging role! She was incredible as Ally, don't get me wrong, but they shared a lot of common ground, so I think with this role we'll finally see her whole range as an actress. But no doubt she'll pull it off just fine!
