Lucie Arnaz — one of the great people around– has posted a video to Facebook explaining news of the Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz movie, “Being the Ricardos.”
I guess Lucie was being inundated with questions about the casting of Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem as her famous and beloved parents. Lucie says the paperwork hasn’t even been signed yet for the Aaron Sorkin film, but she’s endorsing it.
“It’s not a biopic from cradle to grave,” she says. “It’s a soupcon, a slice of life. Just trust us, it’s a nice movie. ”
They’re not re-creating old skits from “I Love Lucy.” Arnaz cautions that Sorkin has placed the story on a week of shooting the show on a soundstage and what that entails. And remember, Nicole and Javier are playing Lucille and Desi, not Lucy and Ricky.
I love Lucie! She’s the best. And she knows what she’s doing.
