Ridley Scott is in production on his new biopic “House of Gucci,” in which pop singer Lady Gaga returns to acting as Patrizia Reggiani, wife of Maurizio Gucci, head of the iconic fashion house, who will be portrayed by Adam Driver.
Scott works on a film inspired by the book written by Sara Gay Forden, which documented the events that led to Maurizio’s murder in 1995. His wife would have been found guilty of hiring a hit man to end the life of her husband. .
