Tom Ford’s first directorial effort A Single Man garnered a slew of nominations and quite a few award wins (including a BAFTA Award that Colin Firth received for his role in the film), so it was only a matter of time before the designer dipped his toe into the film pool again. Ford revealed to WWD that he is working on a new movie, which is expected to shoot September through December.
Ford just finished writing the screenplay in September, based off a little-known novel, which Ford declined to reveal. Though it’s based off the book, the designer says he has made many changes to the plotline in order for the film to more closely match his vision. But fans of the mysterious book won’t fret too much as Ford says the movie has two parts, one that sticks to the book and another that meanders off into his own interpretation. Since the book doesn’t appear to have the kind of cult following like Gone Girl, perhaps the adjustments he made won’t be viewed as controversial.
Either way, if it is nearly as good or visually arresting as A Single Man, we have no doubt that it will be a hit.
