Following in the footsteps of The Assassination of Gianni Versace, another tragic tale from the fashion historical archive is soon to be told.

Shooting for the 2021 film, House of Gucci, is already underway with an incredibly impressive cast, director and first-look images already adding intrigue and excitement for the upcoming project.

The film chronicles the famous Gucci dynasty, headed up by Guccio Gucci, and the 1995 murder of his grandson, the Italian businessman Maurizio Gucci who was an heir to the business, had headed up the company but been forced to sell it and had a very tumultuous relationship with his ex-wife Patrizia Reggiana.

And by tumultuous, we mean that Reggiana served 16 years in prison after being convicted of ordering her ex-husband's murder via a hit man. She was released in 2016.

Fame, fortune, sex, betrayal, greed and fashion are all intwined in the true crime story making it all the more enticing for viewers. Here's everything we know about the upcoming film...

Who is the House of Gucci cast?

Playing Maurizio Gucci, who ultimately loses his life in the story, is Marriage Story and Girls actor Adam Driver. For the other half of the mind-blowing partnership, Reggiana will be played by Lady Gaga.

Also cast in the film, which is being directed by none other than Ridley Scott, is legendary actor Al Pacino who will portray Maurizio's uncle, and the eldest son of Guccio, Aldo. Menawhile, real-life Gucci favourite actor Jared Leto will portray Aldo's son and Maurizio's cousin, Paolo. Jeremy Irons will play Driver's on-screen father Rodolfo Gucci, from whom Maurizio inherited his stake in the company.

The picture perfect post on the singer's Instagram - captioned the post in Italian which reads 'Signore e Signora Gucci' and translates to Mr and Mrs Gucci - has already been liked 3.5 million times, encouraging some serious anticipation for the film.

When will House of Gucci be released?

According to reports, the film will be release in November, 2021.
