Even though they are controversial, we cannot deny that Ridley Scott's murder drama is going to be the film event of the 2021 holiday season.
Featuring an exceptional cast, the film was prepared for ten years and is based on the book "The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed" written in 2001 by Sara Gay Forden. (source: Wikipedia)
While originally Ridley Scott wanted Angelina Jolie for the role of Patrizia Reggiani, in the end, the "A Star Was Born" protagonist, Lady Gaga, got the part, as the second movie of her career.
The Oscar-winning star has revealed to "Vogue" British edition that she had prepared intensely for the part of the most black widow in fashion's history.
Gaga worked for three years to build the character, spending almost one year to perfection her Italian accent, even though she has Italian roots.
Also, she lived as Patrizia Reggiani for a year and a half, totally identifying with the famous Italian widow (according to her interview on Vogue British Edition).
Lady Gaga was also a fashion icon for such a long time, and now - the star of British Vogue's December edition. We cannot think of someone who could have played better the starring role in one of the most famous drama stories of the last century.
Besides Lady Gaga's contribution, "House of Gucci" has a top distribution: Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, and Jared Leto.
The film promises to uncover thirty years in the history of the legendary Italian family of Gucci and tells the true story of Patrizia Reggiano, who spent many years in jail for the assassination of her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci.
The film was prepared to be launched in 2021,100 years from the foundation of the Gucci brand. (source: Wikipedia).
According to Harper's Bazaar, the real Gucci family shared some concerns about the Gucci tradition being respected in the film.
The production is going to be released in the USA on November 24th.
