House of Gucci is officially finished filming.
Lady Gaga took to Instagram on Saturday afternoon to confirm that the highly-anticipated drama about the 1995 murder-for-hire of Maurizio Gucci (the grandson of the fashion house’s founder, Guccio Gucci), has wrapped filming.
“That’s a wrap, Rid. #HouseOfGucci,” Gaga captioned a picture of her outstretched arms fist-bumping the film’s director, Ridley Scott, in a socially-distanced, pandemic-responsible celebration of a job well done.

House of Gucci is based on the 2001 book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden and stars Adam Driver and Gaga as Maurizio Gucci and his ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani, who was convicted of orchestrating his murder.
While fans are overwhelmingly excited to see the movie, which has been filming on location in Italy, some members of the Gucci family have made it clear they’re not thrilled about the project.
Recently, great-grandchildren of Guccio Gucci voiced concerns to the Associated Press, saying that they’re worried the project won’t respect their family’s legacy.
“We are truly disappointed. I speak on behalf of the family,” Maurizio’s second cousin, Patrizia Gucci, explained. “They are stealing the identity of a family to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system….Our family has an identity, privacy. We can talk about everything. but there is a borderline that cannot be crossed.”
House of Gucci is currently scheduled to be released November 24, 2021.
