Lady Gaga isn't the only musician who is part of the main cast, the Rain on Me singer will also be joined by Jared Leto - who is fronting a Gucci campaign IRL - as Maurizio's brother Paolo.

Jeremy Irons will play another Gucci brother, Rodolfo. The cast is rounded out by Jack Huston, Reeve Carney and Camille Cottin.

Who is directing it?

Ridley Scott, the man behind Blade Runner, Alien and Gladiator will take the reigns. In recent years, Ridley has seemingly shifted from sci-fi to crime dramas, with 2007's American Gangster and 2017's All the Money in the World.

Maybe he can direct the long-awaited sequel to the Telephone video with Lady Gaga and Beyonce afterwards?

Is it based on a true story?

Yes. The film is loosely based on the real life story of Maurizio's assassination and explores the role Patrizia played in it. The screenplay is based on a book called House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed.

Similarly, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story was also based on a book titled Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History.

On 27 March 1995, her ex-husband was shot and killed by a hitman hired by Patrizia on the steps outside his office as he arrived to work.

On 31 January 1997, Patrizia Reggiani was arrested, and in 1998 she was convicted of arranging the killing of her husband, Maurizio Gucci, and sentenced to 29 years in prison. This was later reduced to 26 years.

She was released in October 2016 after serving 18 years after her sentence was cut short for good behaviour.

When can we see it?

House of Gucci is set to be released 24th November 2021 in the US and two days later in the UK. It is currently filming around Rome and Lake Como in Italy.
