The story of the Gucci family in Ridley Scott's new film

An impressive cast, including Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jeremy Irons, Jared Leto and Al Pacino, to tell the family history of one of the most famous Florentine fashion houses in the world

It will be none other than director Ridley Scott to direct the film that will tell 30 years of the intense history of the Gucci dynasty, a Florentine family that just a century ago gave birth to one of the most famous brands in the world, today more than ever on the crest of success.

The release is not confirmed but is scheduled for November 24.

The story has a Shakespearean flavor, based on the novel The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden.


At the apex, the story of the murder of Maurizio Gucci (grandson of the founder Guccio Gucci and at the time already former director of the company), which took place in Milan with four gunshots on March 27, 1995, with behind the invisible hand of his ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani, supported by his companion and confidante, the fortune teller Giuseppina Auriemma, called Pina.

Lady Gaga, Adam Driver and Jeremy Irons

A stellar cast has been called upon to narrate the enthusiasms and sorrows, the meanness and noble impulses, the successes and declines of these three Gucci generations. Already confirmed are: Lady Gaga, who will be the 'black widow' behind the murder, for which she has served almost 20 years in prison despite never confessing; Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci and Jeremy Irons, who will play Rodolfo Gucci, Maurizio's father. While already nominated several times, but still to be confirmed, a legend such as Al Pacino, Jared Leto (already testimonial of the Maison), Jack Huston and Reeve Carney.
