Adam Driver and Lady Gaga become Mr. and Mrs. Gucci in the first trailer for the upcoming Ridley Scott biopic “House of Gucci”.
Hollywood icons, Adam Driver and Lady Gaga, have finally had their roles as fashion icon Maurizio Gucci and wife Patrizia Reggiani revealed to the world in the first trailer for the upcoming movie House of Gucci.
Based on the 2001 book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden, the true-crime thriller revolves around the 1995 murder of Reggiani’s husband, the head of international fashion powerhouse Gucci. Clashing egos within the fashion family, corporate corruption, and the assassination of Maurizio orchestrated by Reggiani herself, all combine to bring Gucci family saga to the big screens.
“I don’t see myself as being a particularly ethical person, but I am fair,” Gaga’s Reggiani says as the trailer portrays the increasing control the wife had over the business leading up to the murder of Maurizio. Reggiani was convicted of planning and ordering the murder of her husband and spent 18 years in prison. She was released in 2016.
“The story is so epic, the stakes so high and the characters so richly drawn,” co-producer Giannina Scott said about House of Gucci. Giannina and her Academy Award winning husband Ridley Scott are producing the movie together: “This project has long been a labour of love for both Ridley and me.” Other famed actors who are part of this first official trailer include Academy Award winning Jared Leto and Al Pacino.
MGM Film Chairman Michael De Luca had nothing but praise for the film, Ridley Scott’s involvement in particular: “Nothing typifies bold, audacious originality more than a film by Ridley Scott.”
