Lady Gaga is bringing the fashion once again, and this time, Adam Driver is right by her side to serve looks. The two movie stars are teaming up for what already sounds like the buzziest movie of 2021, full of A-list talent, couture fashion, and juicy scandal. The hype is realer than ever for Lady Gaga and Adam Driver’s House of Gucci, especially after Gaga shared the first of several character posters for the new film.
The upcoming movie is a biopic based on the 2001 book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden. Lady Gaga and Adam Driver play the central couple Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci, who headed the famous Gucci fashion house throughout a turbulent period in the ’80s and early ’90s. This film is sure to be packed with drama, since Maurizio was widely blamed for the company’s financial losses during his reign, and in 1995, he was killed by a hitman. Even twistier: It was his wife, Patrizia, who was tried and convicted for arranging her husband’s murder.
The case of high-fashion homicide is perfect for a movie, so it’s no wonder it attracted a cast full of superstars. Here’s everything to know about the upcoming film:
