Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem are deep in character for their upcoming biopic “Being The Ricardos”.
In the Aaron Sorkin-written and -directed project, Kidman will star as Lucille Ball and Bardem as Desi Arnaz.
“Being The Ricardos” takes place over one week of filming the beloved sitcom “I Love Lucy” where both their careers and their marriage faced a crisis.
A recent pic showed Kidman in bright yellow pants, a checked blazer and a headscarf to complete the ’50s style. Bardem was dapper in a green tuxedo jacket with black lapel.
The two were spotted embracing between two vintage cars while filming on Friday.
Ball and Arnaz were married in 1940 before splitting in 1960.
Kidman was then pictured in a blue trouser suit over a pale pink blouse with a collar. She covered up in a black jacket between scenes, rocking the same red ‘do.
Earlier this month, Kidman teased filming with a closed set pic with the caption, “Currently in production.”
There was some controversy over casting Kidman, but Ball and Arnaz’s daughter Lucie Arnaz showed support for the choice.
“Aaron has done a wonderful job of bringing these characters to life, and it’s just a little … slice of life in their journey,” she shared. “It’s not the whole story. It’s not a biopic from cradle to grave. It is a two-hour feature film about these two people and some of the remarkable things they lived through.”
Adding, “Just trust us, it’s going to be a nice film, and p.s. the voting is over. I love all of you.”
