According to Variety, channeling apres-ski chic, Driver is donning a cable knit turtleneck sweater and a separate white jacket fashioned around his waist, while Gaga is draped in gold chains and outfitted in all black with a white Cossack hat.
‘House of Gucci’, which is currently filming in Europe marks Gaga’s first film role following her Oscar-nominated performance in ‘A Star Is Born’. Driver has received Academy Award nominations for ‘BlacKkKlansman’ and ‘Marriage Story’.
As per People magazine, ‘House of Gucci’ is based on the popular book ‘The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed’ by Sara Gay Forden. The upcoming movie follows the story of Maurizio Gucci (Driver), the head of the Gucci fashion house, and his ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani (Gaga) and the aftermath of his death after Patrizia hired a hitman to kill him in 1995.
Maurizio and Patrizia married in 1973 and in May 1985, the businessman left his wife for a younger woman after 12 years of marriage. Their divorce was finalised in 1991. In 1995, Maurizio was shot and killed by a hitman Patrizia hired on the steps outside his office in Milan.
Patrizia was convicted of arranging her husband’s murder in 1998 and sentenced to 29 years in prison. Their daughters, Alessandra and Allegra, asked that her conviction be overturned, claiming her brain tumour had affected her ability to reason.
