Ridley Scott's highly anticipated biopic, House of Gucci, is officially on the way. MGM Studios released the official character posters of the upcoming movie, starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver. The film is set to hit theaters on Nov. 24, 2021.
Gaga shared the poster with her 48.4 million followers on Instagram. "Stasera," she captioned the post–which translates to "this evening," possibly hinting at a trailer release. House of Gucci will be Gaga's first film since her award-winning performance in A Star Is Born.

The film will portray the life of Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver), the grandson of the founder of the Gucci fashion house, Guccio Gucci, and his relationship with his wife, Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga). Reggiani was convicted of murdering Gucci in 1998.
Scott's biopic is based on the book House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara G. Forden. The film boasts a star-studded cast alongside Gaga and Driver. Suicide Squad actor Jared Leto will play Paolo Gucci, with Justice League actor Jeremy Irons as Rodolfo Gucci, famed actor Al Pacino as Aldo Gucci, and Frida actress Salma Hayek as Pina Auriemma.
MGM posted official posters of the film on Instagram this morning, captioning the photos, using the same caption as Gaga. Leto's look in particular sent fans into a frenzy, with the actor's transformation making him almost unrecognizable.
