Lady Gaga is undoubtedly one of the entertainment icons of the decade. The pop star is not only a singer as she has also made limited excursions into acting. This earned her an Oscar-nomination in the 2018 movie “A Star Is Born.”
Before this, she made several appearances in Robert Rodriguez movies, including “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” and “Machete Kills.”
She also had recurring roles in the “American Horror Story seasons Hotel and Roanoke.” However, since she successfully evolved from a waitress to a pop megastar, Gaga appeared in another movie.
In The Works
In 2020, Gaga released her fifth solo album, “Chromatica,” as she returned to music and sang the national anthem at President Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, 2021.
Luckily for fans that have missed having Gaga play out roles, her return to the movies is going to be sooner than later.
The “Bad Romance” singer is currently working on two high-profile movie projects, and one of them is currently filming and will hopefully make it to the theaters in 2022. Both films, however, revolve around professional assassins.
The Five Assassins
The movie project currently in production is titled “Bullet Train” a thriller movie led by actor Brad Pitt alongside other A-list cast members.
The film is based on the novel “Maria Beetle” by Kōtarō Isaka. The movie is about five assassins who crossed paths on the same Japanese train while pursuing separate targets.
The movie is being directed by David Leitch, the action specialist who previously worked on “Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde, and John Wick.” Other casts in the movie include Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Zazie Beetz, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji, Masi Oka, and so on.
Back in November, “Collider” reported Gaga’s involvement in the movie. For the production, details are being kept a secret. Still, an insider informed “Collider” that Gaga would only play a supporting role and not a significant role as one of the assassins.
In her other project, the singer is set to play a role in the biopic of director Ridley Scott titled “Gucci.”
According to “Deadline,” Gaga will play Patrizia Reggiani’s role, the ex-wife of the Gucci fashion company’s former head, Maurizio Gucci. Adam Driver will depict the part of Maurizio.
Gucci Family History
In 1995, Reggiani hired a hitman to have her ex-husband assassinated outside his office. After a successful hit, she was arrested, convicted, and sentenced to twenty-nine years behind bars.
However, her sentence was later shortened, and she was released for good behavior. According to Gucci’s IMDB page, the film is also speculated to star Jared Leto, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, and Jack Huston in its production.
The Gucci family feud and murder tales were written by Roberto Bentivegna, based on the book “The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed” by Sara Gay Forden.
