Actor Jeremy Irons is set to star opposite Lady Gaga in MGM’s upcoming murder mystery movie Gucci, directed by Ridley Scott.

Based on the book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden set in late 20th century Italy, the plot of Gucci follows Patrizia Reggiani, played by Gaga, who is the vengeful ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, played by Adam Driver. When her husband leaves her for a younger woman after 12 years of marriage, Reggiani orchestrates her ex-husband’s assassination and gets tried and convicted for it. She serves 18 years and earns the name “Black Widow.”

Irons, an Oscar-winning and Emmy-nominated actor, is going to play the role of Maurizio’s father, Rodolfo Gucci. Other stars attached to the film are Jared Leto, Al Pacino, Jack Huston and Reeve Carney.

MGM has set the release date for Gucci as Nov. 24, 2021, which marks two years after Gaga was first announced to be starring in the film.
