Director Ridley Scott still has to finish production on his period drama The Last Duel, but there is already exciting casting news about his Gucci drama at MGM Studios starring singer Lady Gaga.
Gaga will play Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, who was tried and convicted of orchestrating her ex-husband’s assassination on the steps of his office in 1995. She served 18 years before being let out of jail in 2016.
Deadline reports that Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Jack Huston and Reeve Carney are in-talks for various roles. An excellent group of actors if they can convince them to all sign-on.
Robert De Niro and Al Pacino recently worked together on Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, Robert is set to reunite with Martin alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in the thriller Killers of The Flower Moon.
Driver recently took over the Ben Affleck role in The Last Duel after Ben had scheduling issues.
The script was written by Roberto Bentivegna.
When production will begin on Gucci is a little unclear given that Scott has to complete The Last Duel and other actors will be busy with other projects.
