The first look for Salma Hayek and Lady Gaga in ‘House of Gucci‘ is floating over the web. Hayek will portray the role of Pina Auriemma in the film. she was a friend of Reggiani and a clairvoyant who was sentenced to 25 years in prison following Maurizio Gucci’s murder trial in 1998 for allegedly organizing the killing for a fee.
Lady Gaga said about Salma Hayek to Variety that “She is extraordinary improvising, and not everybody has that. She really embodies the character. Her level of commitment—I’ve only seen maybe once or twice somebody commit to a character like she does.”
Hayek joins a cast that already includes Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jeremy Irons, Al Pacino, Jack Huston, and Jared Leto. The film is both directed by Scott and tells the story about how Gaga’s character, Patrizia Reggiani, and the ex-wife to Maurizio Gucci, infamously carried out a hit on him less than two years after he sold the Gucci fashion empire to an investment group after the death of his father. via Wrap.
The script was written by Roberto Bentivegna and is based on Sara Gay Forden’s non-fiction book “The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed” from 2000.
“House of Gucci” will hit the theaters on November 24, 2021, in the U.S.
