Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott is shaping up to have quite a year. The “Alien” director is releasing his historical drama “The Last Duel” (which stars Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Jodie Comer, and Adam Driver) on October 15. And later this year, he’s teaming up with Driver once again for another, much more recent period piece: “House of Gucci,” a biographical crime film which also stars “A Star is Born” actress Lady Gaga.
Based on Sara Gay Forden’s 2001 book “House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed,” Scott’s film tells the true story of Patrizia Reggiani (Gaga). Patrizia was an affluent Italian socialite during her 1980s marriage to Gucci fashion head Maurizio Gucci. However, her life changed forever when she was tried and convicted for pulling off his assassination after their divorce. “House of Gucci” promises to be a buzzy, star-studded drama, so let’s break down everything we know about it.
