Leitch and Kelly McCormick will produce through their company 87North, along with Antoine Fuqua and Kat Samick.
Gaga hit the Hollywood Hills ablaze with her star turn in Bradley Cooper’s ‘A Star is Born’ which not only earned her Academy Award for Best Original Song but also the Best Actress nomination as well. She is also attached to Ridley Scott’s ‘Gucci’ alongside Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Jared Leto and Adam Driver.
