Fashion designer extraordinaire Tom Ford will be swapping the threads for a film reel this year when his second feature film hits theatres with some serious star power behind it.
Nocturnal Animals will see Ford return to the Director’s chair to command a stellar cast including Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher and Armie Hammer in a drama based on Austin Wright’s 1993 novel entitled ‘Tony and Susan’.
More specifically the film will form a two-part story within a story which follows the character of Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband whom she left 20 years ago. The husband meanwhile wants to wants know her opinion on his writing.

The second part of the story looks specifically at the manuscript called ‘Nocturnal Animals’ which outlines a man’s family vacation which turns deadly. The upcoming film will see Ford returning to filming duties seven years after his debut collaboration with Colin Firth in ‘A Single Man’, a performance which subsequently earned him a best actor Oscar nomination for his depiction of a depressed gay British professor living in Los Angeles during 1962.
It appears the notion of doing one thing and one thing well doesn’t apply in Tom Ford’s rulebook.
