Ford Gears Up For Movie Debut


Tom Ford (pictured), who made his name as the creative force behind Gucci’s revival and now has his own fashion brand, is making his movie directing debut with an adaptation of Christopher Isherwood‘s novel, “A Single Man.” Shooting begins next week and here’s the cast: Colin Firth (as the Isherwood stand-in figure: a British literary type in California), Julianne Moore, and Matthew Goode. My theory for why Ford chose this story: it takes place in pre-hippie Los Angeles, a time and place that Ford loves and will allow him to re-create a sense of Santa Monica, bungalow laid-backness — without wicker furniture, however!
