Ford Exploring

Tom Ford has signed with CAA agent (and longtime friend) Brian Lourd to find films to direct. The NYPost's Suzanne Kapner pitches him a really edgy story:

Tom Ford after his last Gucci menswear collection, image: gq-magazine.co.uk Robert Evans called. He wants his schtick back...

"For his last Gucci menswear show, there were scantily clad dancers with big hair and heavy eye makeup gyrating around stripper poles and worldly gentlemen with tumblers of whiskey.

Keep an eye out for such images in a future film - perhaps a cross between Ocean's Eleven and Showgirls?"

Suzanne, Brian's not taking calls right now. Can I get your number, and I'll pass it along?

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
