Ford’s Next Film?: A spokeswoman for Tom Ford declined to comment Wednesday on a Hollywood Reporter story that Ford has written and will direct “Nocturnal Animals,” a screen adaption of 1993 novel called “Tony and Susan,” by the late novelist Austin Wright. The report noted that George Clooney is set to produce the project together with Grant Heslov, his partner at Smokehouse Pictures. The publication described the book as a “postmodern noir thriller,” whose subject is a woman who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband of 20 years. The narrative then follows both the path of the manuscript and the story of the woman reading it. The project would be a second film outing for Ford, who made a splash in 2009 with his directorial debut “A Single Man,” which he wrote as an adaptation of Christopher Isherwood’s novel of the same name. Colin Firth went on to be nominated for an Oscar for his leading role in the film. Ford began the film project after leaving his role as creative director for Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent in 2004, before launching his own Tom Ford label in 2005.
