Tom Ford to Team with Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams, George Clooney for 'Nocturnal Animals'

Many more details have emerged about Tom Ford's follow-up film project to the critically-acclaimed A Single Man.

Tom_fordThe Hollywood Reporter reveals:

Ford is attached to direct Nocturnal Animals, the adaptation of an Austin Wright book titled Tony and Susan. Ford wrote the script for the postmodern noir thriller and will direct while [George] Clooney will produce with his Smokehouse Pictures partner Grant Heslov.

Wright’s book was initially published in 1993 and tells of a woman named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man whom she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion.

The book then tracks two stories: the story in the novel, titled Nocturnal Animals, which tells of a man whose family vacation turns violent and deadly; and the story of Susan, who finds herself recalling her first marriage and confronting some dark truths about herself.

Jake Gyllenhaal is attached to star and Amy Adams is in talks to co-star. "Insiders also say that Joaquin Phoenix and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are also being sought for leading roles," according to THR.

Ford told WWD last month that his shooting window for the film is September 15 to December, and if he misses it, the project must wait till next year because of his grueling fashion schedule.


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."
