A Man That Gets What He Wants

The sexy beast that is Tom Ford is finally about to make his move into movies.

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.

Following a 10 year run at Gucci, Ford stepped down in 2004 following a failure to agree contract terms and in 2005 set up his own design line with up-market stores now in New York and Milan and planned for over a dozen locations including London, Los Angeles, and Dubai.

After leaving Gucci, Ford also signed on with Creative Artists Agency with the aim to slide into the director's chair.
