Lady Gaga to Star in New Ridley Scott Movie

Lady Gaga to Star in New Ridley Scott Movie

There could be 100 people in the room but only Gaga is going to star on the new Ridley Scott movie!. It has just been announced that Oscar-winning actress will star in Ridley Scott's upcoming film about the Gucci family and the murder of the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci, Deadline reports.

Gaga is attached to star as Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, who was tried and convicted of orchestrating her ex-husband’s assassination on the steps of his office in 1995. She served 18 years before being let out of jail in 2016.

The Gucci murder tale is scripted by Roberto Bentivegna, based on the Sara Gay Forden book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed. Scott plans to move quickly to direct the film after he first helms The Last Duel. He will produce the Gucci saga with Giannina Scott, and Scott Free Productions.

It is the first project Lady Gaga has attached herself to since her ''Best Actress'' nomination in a breakout turn opposite Bradley Cooper in ''A Star Is Born''. She won an Oscar for writing the song Shallow, one of a number of hits on the soundtrack. The combination of actress and director is already starting to draw interest but the first stop will be Fox/Disney, where Scott Free has its first look, and where Scott will next direct The Last Duel, with Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Jodie Comer and Ben Affleck in a coproduction between Scott Free and Pearl Street.

Lady Gaga is repped by CAA and Grubman Shire; Scott is WME. More info coming soon!
