'House of Gucci' Writer Reveals What Was Left on the Cutting Room Floor, Including a Big Part of Lady Gaga's Role

Roberto Bentivegna, the screenwriter of the new movie House of Gucci, is opening up about the parts of the film that were left on the cutting room floor.

The 39-year-old writer actually made his feature film debut with the new project and he landed the job after working with director Ridley Scott on another film that hasn’t been made yet.

In the new interview, Roberto talked about the parts of his original script that were left out of the movie.

“The very first draft had a ten-page opening sequence. It was the history of the brand and the Gucci family. One of my favorite openings ever is the first five minutes of Bram Stoker’s Dracula by Francis Ford Coppola. I was trying to do that,” Roberto told Vulture.

He continued, “The other thing that got cut was a voiceover throughout the movie that I wrote for [Lady Gaga's character] Patrizia. Ridley decided that we didn’t need it and we got rid of it. But all the drafts had that voiceover. I mean, I’ve been very lucky, at one point, the script was 150 pages long, which is kind of insane. It got down to 135 by the time we were shooting. We didn’t really cut any scenes.”

Gaga has revealed the truth about the most iconic line of the movie, which Roberto even confirmed in his interview.
