House of Gucci is an upcoming movie by Ridley Scott that shows how, once the head of the couture house, he managed to sell the company’s shares and got murdered by none other than his wife. It then follows the trial case of his wife, who is alive to date.
Based on a book by Sara Gay Forden’s The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed, the movie is going to be nothing short of drama, fashion, money, lust, and betrayal. It will show how Maurizio Gucci, the grandson of Guccio Gucci, fell in love with a woman, married her, divorced her, and then got killed by a hitman hired by her. The irony!
House of Gucci Release Date
The much-awaited movie will be hitting screens on 24th November 2021. This date coincides with Gucci’s 100 anniversary.
The movie’s plot is pretty clear for anyone who has read Sara Gay’s book or knows the story of Maurizio Gucci. After all, the movie is inspired by true events. But if you haven’t, here are all the details below.
The movie will revolve around the lives of Maurizio Gucci and his ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani. Viewers will get to see them both get married, spend time in clubs and spend money lavishly. The couple also had two daughters in this time period.
Besides this, the plot will also highlight how Maurizio lied to his wife, the famous socialite Patrizia, and betrayed her. He cheated on his wife with a much younger woman. And for that very woman, he also divorced his wife. Moreover, viewers will also see how Maurizio brought the famous dynasty to a loss due to his numerous failures. And destroyed the company to such an extent that the only solution for Maurizio was to sell his shares to a Bahrain-based company.
What Will Patrizia Do?
Obviously, a woman like Patrizia couldn’t let go of her husband’s betrayal so easily. And so, she did the worst. She hired a hitman who shot her husband in the open, on the stairs of his office in Milan, on March 27, 1995.
The hitman was found and arrested. In addition to this, Patrizia, the prime suspect for her ex-husband’s death, received punishment after 2 years in 1997. She was sentenced to 26 years in prison. It was at this point she got the title of Black Widow.
However, her sentence was cut short, and she was released in 2016. Patrizia is still alive and spends most of her time in Milan. The movie is overall a story of betrayal, murder, and revenge. And honestly, it would be great to see it come to life.
