What do you think about this casting? Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball and Javier Bardem playing Desi Arnaz. That could work!

The New York Post reports that Kidman and Bardem are in talks for a biopic called Being The Ricardos. Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, A Few Good Men) is writing the screenplay and directing. The film is set during a rehearsal and production of an “I Love Lucy” episode, at a time when Lucy and Desi’s marriage was in trouble.

Cate Blanchett was originally attached to the film when Amazon bought the rights in 2017. I think Nicole Kidman is a better choice. No release date has been set for Being the Ricardos.
