Well folks, fashion and true crime collide once again. If you thought Lady Gaga was done with her acting career post-A Star is Born, then you’re sadly mistaken. She’s in the middle of filming the new House of Gucci film, where’s she starring opposite literally everyone’s movie hubby, Adam Driver. And OMG, guys—it already looks amazing.

What is the movie about exactly? Well, it’s all about Patrizia Reggiani (played by Lady Gaga) and what happens in the aftermath of her orchestrating the assassination of her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci (played by Adam Driver). Intrigued? Well good, because here are some of the deets on what we know so far.

We have our first look at the costumes.

Gaga dropped a first-look photo on her Instagram that’s serving après-ski chic and I have never seen anything more glamorous in my life. She looks like a snow bunny queen ruling over the Italian Alps in a cozy fur hat and elegant jewelry. And don’t even get me started on Adam Driver and his cable-knit turtleneck and matching white snowsuit. Even if the script and acting is terrible (which obvs it won’t be), I would still watch these two walking around Italy in their costumes for hours.

The cast is stacked.

Yes, we’ve already got Gaga and Adam on board, but let me tell you just how much better it gets from there. We have Jared Leto portraying Paulo Gucci (Maurizio’s cousin), Al Pacino as Aldo Gucci (Paulo’s father) and Jeremy Irons as Maurizio’s father, Rodolfo. Camille Cottin is also set to make an appearance, portraying Paola Franchi, the women Maurizio was living with at the time of his death.

This movie’s been in the works for 15 years.

Fifteen years, if you want to be exact. Ridley Scott (aka film extraordinaire) has been trying to direct a Gucci movie since 2006, with Angelina Jolie and Leonardo DiCaprio initially attached to play the leads. After going through a ton of changes (including Penelope Cruz and Margot Robbie both being tested for the lead role), the film finally began shooting… but not before Robert De Niro stepped out of the picture as well.

Also, if you want a quick glimpse of exactly what to expect, you can use The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour and Greed as your guide. After all, it is the book the movie is based on.

The real-life Patrizia just got out of prison a few years ago.

Yes, you read it right. Patrizia and Maurizio were happily married for 12 years… until he up and left her for a younger woman in 1985. Flash forward a few years to their 1991 divorce, and by 1995, she hired a hitman to shoot Maurizio right outside his office. The result? Patrizia was sentenced to 29 years in prison for conspiring the murder, but eventually got out in 2016 (just a casual 18 years behind bard) on good behavior.

New pictures just came out from filming in Italy.

OMG—this is what we’ve all been waiting for! Well, technically filming began back in February, but based on newly-released photos, the film has all we could ever want: chic 80’s outfits, a love story gone wrong, and a whole lot of sex appeal.
