Lady Gaga is starring in a new crime drama, House of Gucci, and the first trailer has officially dropped.

Telling the story of the Gucci family, yes, that Gucci family, Lady Gaga is set to play Patrizia Reggiani, the woman convicted of killing her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci.

Adam Driver is playing Maurizio, along with a massive star-studded cast including Jared Leto as Paolo Gucci, Jeremy Irons as Rodolfo Gucci, Al Pacino as Aldo Gucci and Salma Hayek as Giuseppina "Pina" Auriemm.

Opening the trailer with Patrizia walking down an Italian path, she looks longingly at a Gucci store, confessing that the Gucci name drew her in due to its "wealth, style [and] power".

"But that name was a curse too," Adam Driver's Maurizio adds.

The grandson of Guccio Gucci, the fashion house's founder, was shot to death outside his Milan home in 1995 when Patrizia hired a hit man to kill him.

The pair split in 1985 and officially divorced in 1992, with a $650,000 divorce settlement. She was convicted in 1998 but released in 2014.

The film hits cinemas on November 26th, and focuses on the lead up to the trial and how Patrizia ended up there.

Directed by Ridley Scott, the film is adapted from Sara Gay Forden’s 2000 book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, And Greed.
