Colin Firth, Julianne Moore and Matthew Goode are set to star in "A Single Man," Ford's adaptation of a Christopher Isherwood novel.
Published in 1964, the novel centers on a gay man who, after the sudden death of his partner, is determined to persist in his usual routine, which is seen in the span of a single, ordinary day in southern California.
Firth is the gay man, an Englishman and professor who feels like an outsider in Los Angeles. Goode is the boyfriend who dies in a car accident and appears in flashbacks. Moore plays a friend of the professor.
After leaving Gucci, Ford also signed on with Creative Artists Agency with the aim to slide into the director's chair.
