She’s still wowing crowds in Vegas with her sold-out residency, and recently launched her own beauty range, but Lady Gaga is still finding time to be an actress, too. Filmmaker Ridley Scott announced he will direct Gaga as the lead in a new film about the assassination of Maurizio Gucci.
The singer/actress has signed on to play the starring role of Patrizia Reggiani, who was tried and convicted of orchestrating the murder of her husband Maurizio, the grandson of fashion legend Guccio Gucci, on the steps of his office in 1995.
Reggiani served 18 years behind bars for the killing before being released from prison in 2016.
Ridley's wife Giannina Scott will produce the film for Scott Free Productions from a script penned by Roberto Bentivegna, reports Deadline.
This is the first film role for Lady Gaga since she starred in hit 2018 remake A Star is Born with Bradley Cooper, which landed her an Oscar for her work writing the soundtrack tune, Shallow.
And truth be told, we’re sure she’ll nail this new role. Who knows, she might even get another ‘Best Actress’ nomination. Even better – WIN it!
