Deadline Hollywood has just reported that Lady Gaga has been cast in her first movie role after her breakout performance as Ally in “A Star Is Born,” as Patrizia Reggiani in Ridley Scott’s new movie about the assassination of Gucci's grandson Maurizio. Ridley Scott is an acclaimed director and executive producer, with his most notable works being the iconic movies such as Alien, Blade Runner, and, one of Lady Gaga’s favorites, Thelma & Louise.
The ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci was tried and convicted of orchestrating her ex-husband’s assassination on the steps of his office in 1995. She served 18 years before being let out of jail in 2016.
The film is not yet attached to any particular studio but Ridley Scott’s first pitch stop will be Fox/Disney.
Lady Gaga recently won an Oscar for Best Original Song writing the song “Shallow” for her movie with Bradley Cooper, “A Star Is Born” and was also nominated for Best Actress for the same role.
