Is Tom Ford suiting up to join the velvet mafia? It looks that way on the cover of September’s German Vanity Fair.
Earlier this week, E!‘s Marc Malkin reported that Ford’s foray into the world of directing was coming closer to fruition:
“Sources reveal exclusively to me that it looks like Colin Firth will star as a gay college professor who deals with the sudden death of his lover. The character is helped in his efforts by a lifelong female friend and one of his students. Firth’s rep tells me ‘he’s in discussions’ but it’s not a done deal. Julianne Moore will play the friend while Jamie Bell has signed for the student role, my sources say. The story takes place in 1962 in Los Angeles. No studio is attached to the project, but Ford plans to begin filming in L.A. in November.”
