Nicole Kidman replaces Cate Blanchett as Lucille Ball in Aaron Sorkin’s biopic for Amazon Studios, ‘Being the Ricardos’. The actress joins Javier Bardem to become the first television family. The actors will be Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz , the protagonists of the comedy ‘I love Lucy’, based on a week of production of the famous series: Reading the script on Monday and shooting on Friday, when Lucy and Daisy face a crisis that could end their careers and another that could end their marriage. It appears that agreements with interpreters are closed.
Aaron Sorkin writes and directs the film. At first the screenwriter was going to write the film alone, but decided to stay in the direction after his experience in front of ‘The trial of the 7 of Chicago’, an important candidate for the Oscar and product of the Netflix crop.
Originally, Cate Blanchett was spinning in the script to play the lead role of Lucille Ball, reportedly, but has now been replaced by Kidman. Australian actress Blanchett was also in talks to assume the role in early 2017, when Amazon first bought it.
The sit-com ‘I Love Lucy’ aired on CBS for six seasons from 1951 to 1957. Lucy and Desi face a marital crisis in the middle of work. It is already known what Sorkin likes to place pressure cookers in a certain time. Before ‘the Chicago 7 trial’, he had directed ‘Molly’s Game’. Production is expected to begin as soon as the situation allows filming projects to safely resume.
Kidman has already had a busy season with lead roles in the hit HBO suspense miniseries’ The Undoing ‘and the Netflix musical’ The Prom. Coming up this year, he also has the Hulu series’ Nine Perfect Strangers’ and recently wrapped production on Roger Eggers’ ‘The Northman’.
