Singer-actress Lady Gaga will star in a movie about the Gucci family fashion dynasty, and the murder of the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci. The film will be directed by Hollywood ace Ridley Scott. Gaga, who was last seen on the big screen in the 2018 film A Star Is Born, will portray Patrizia Reggiani, ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci. She had been abandoned after 12 years of marriage by Maurizio in 1985 for a younger woman.
