Tom Ford Shares News About His Second Film: VIDEO

Tom Ford offered a few "snippets of insight" about his next film project to WWD this week, in an interview about his fall fashion show which took place last night in Los Angeles. The new film would be the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed A Single Man.

FordThough Ford won’t discuss title or plot lest he divulge secrets too early and bore himself along the way, he provides snippets of insight. He wrote the screenplay himself, finishing it in September. It’s an adaptation of a novel for which he bought the rights, not a well-known book and all the better for that. At this point at least, he has little interest in taking on material pre-loaded with audience expectations. He has changed the title and made considerable revisions to the story. As planned, the film is in two parts, the first faithful to the original material, and the second, completely new.

...

Unlike most directors, whose schedules and deadlines are project-based, Ford must work around an intractable fashion calendar. His narrow shooting window runs from Sept. 15 through December. If for some reason the film doesn’t come together in time, his next opportunity is the same time, next year. “I only need six weeks,” he says, noting that editing will be more flexible; he can set up a room in London. He shot A Single Man in 21 days: “I paid for it myself.”

Ford also spoke about the challenges of adapting a book for film:

“A book is a book; a film is a film. They are totally different things. Sometimes things are subtle in a book because there’s an inner monologue with the character, and turning it into a film, you don’t have that inner monologue—unless you do, which I don’t love.…You have to have something personal; you have to take what speaks to you about a book and amplify that. It’s impressionism, in a way."

Hubbies Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka Team Up for London Fog Ad Campaign

Screen Shot 2014-11-14 at 12.51.20 PM

Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka are sharing more than their lives together--they've now starred in their first-ever joint ad campaign, sporting trench coats for renowned retailer London Fog.

The series of images, part of London Fog's holiday season campaign, debuted on the brand's Facebook page this week where the handsome Hollywood couple took over the banner, receiving thousands of likes and hundreds of comments, most of which are very positive. The main image prominently features the two actors' wedding bands from their high-profile marriage in September. Dari Marder, the chief marketing officer for the brand said London Fog was looking for a modern and iconic couple for the campaign and had few concerns about any potential backlash. 

"We have a smart consumer. We think they’ll get it," said Marder, in an interview with Women's Wear Daily. "We don’t think there will be an issue. I think it will play well. It’s a beautiful, powerful, intimate moment."

The print ads will appear in the December issues of fashion magazines in both the U.S. and U.K. The pair will also appear in spring ads for the London Fog in 2015, just in time for Neil's' hosting of the Oscars and David's starring in a new Broadway musical about marriage.

Jehovah's Witness Leader Preaches Against Tight Pants, Says Gays are Pushing Them: AUDIO

Morris

Anthony Morris III, a member of the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses, recently gave a sermon against tight pants.

SuitGod hates them, and by the way, they're designed by homosexuals.

Morris first warns the women:

"Some of our sisters - what it is are these spanx - these skin tight stuff they wear - when they exercise - they leave their home and they're jogging in this stuff. Look at the verse. Is that appropriate to wear skin tight spanx or whatever they call it? It's not modest and it's certainly not sound of mind. It's really not appropriate. There's really nothing else to say about it. Now you want to be in your home or your room and wear that stuff that's your business. But don't go out like that and say you worship the true God."

And then he warns the men:

"And the other one that needs addressing is for these young fellas, cause the older ones aren't doing much of it thankfully, is the metrosexual look we've addressed that in the past. What's happened now is that it's really caught on more - the tight suit jacket and the tight pants. Better known as tight pants. They are tight all the way down to the ankles. It's not appropriate. It's not sound of mind."

And then (leaving his congregation in stitches) he goes after the gays:

"The homosexuals that are designing these clothes - they'd like you in tight pants."
