Nicole Kidman & Javier Bardem In Talks To Play Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz For Amazon Movie

Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem are going to bring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz to life again on Amazon.

Deadline reports that the two Oscar winning actors are teaming up with Aaron Sorkin to bring the fictional couple and their real life counterparts to life in Being the Ricardos.

The film will be set during one production week of I Love Lucy which was a Monday table read through Friday audience filming schedule.

It will focus on when Lucy and Desi face a crisis that could end their careers and another that could end their marriage.

Aaron will not only direct the film, but wrote the script for it as well.

I Love Lucy ran for six seasons from 1951 until 1957, before Lucy and Desi launched The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour. That ran until 1960.

Lucy and Desi divorced in 1960, and shared two children, Lucie and Desi Jr.

Just recently, some sad news was revealed about Lucy and Desi‘s granddaughter.
