Lady Gaga Is Playing Patrizia Reggiani In New Gucci Murder Movie

Lady Gaga proved she had acting chops when she starred in A Star Is Born, and now she's set to show off her talents once again in Ridley Scott's upcoming film about the murder of fashion designer Guccio Gucci's grandson.

As Variety reports, the 33-year-old will play Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci. As the outlet describes, "She had been abandoned after 12 years of marriage by Maurizio Gucci in 1985 for a younger woman. Reggiani was tried and convicted of orchestrating her ex-husband’s assassination on the steps of his office in Italy in 1995. She gained the nickname the Black Widow during the trial and served 18 years before being released from prison in 2016." The script is based on Sara Gay Forden’s book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed.

A Star is Born earned Gaga a Best Actress Academy Award nomination and the film's hit song "Shallow" won the Oscar for Best Original Song. Though we don't have any more details about the upcoming Gucci murder movie, we can only imagine her performance will create some buzz.

Aside from her burgeoning acting career, Gaga is hard at work on her sixth studio album and electrifying Vegas with her Enigma residency.
