Tom Ford had great success going from fashion designed to film director with A Single Man, and now he’s planning his second movie, Nocturnal Animals, and is lining up a great cash to cast. Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal are already attached to star, and now they’re being joined by Michael Shannon and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, according to Variety.
Adapted from Austin Wright’s 1993 novel Tony And Susan, Nocturnal Animals sees, ‘The first of the two-part story follows a woman (Adams) who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, who she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion. The second part revolves around a man (Gyllenhaal) whose family vacation turns violent.
‘Shannon will play a detective investigating the violent incident Gyllenhaal’s family is involved with and Taylor-Johnson plays a mysterious figure who may pose a threat to Gyllenhaal’s family.’
The movie should shoot later this year.
