It was rumored back in March that was being considered for the role after Ridley worked with her on The Last Duel and was wowed by her performance.

She told the outlet, “I just jumped at the chance to work with Ridley and his team again and the idea of working with Joaquin, who’s someone who I hugely admire. I think for me, what I’m learning is […] you learn and you grow so much by being and working with the people that you’re working alongside.”

“And I just think having that opportunity — I’m so excited to delve into that world,” she continued.

Jodie went on to say she hasn’t started preparing for the film, which will start shooting “closer to the new year.”

The trailer for Ridley Scott‘s latest movie, House of Gucci, recently dropped and you can watch it here.
