Lady Gaga is already cast but Scott is also talking to Robert De Niro, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Al Pacino, Jack Huston, and Reeve Carney.
Scott already has Lady Gaga on board to star as Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci (grandson of fashion dynasty founder Guccio Gucci), who was tried and convicted of orchestrating his assassination on the steps of his office in 1995. She served 18 years in jail before her release in 2016. Maurizio had two daughters with Reggiani, but he left her for another woman. She’d had a brain tumor removed, and her children blamed it for her actions; the media took a darker view of her during a sensationalized affair, depicting her as a hot-blooded woman scorned and dubbing her "Black Widow."
