Nicole Kidman is ready to show the world her interpretation of the iconic Lucille Ball. The trailer for the film Being the Ricardos was just released, in which Kidman plays the fan-favorite comedian. The sneak peak opens up with the Big Little Lies actress doing a voice-over, speaking about how she gets to work on her sitcom, I Love Lucy. She goes on to mention then-husband Desi Arnaz, who is played by Oscar-winner Javier Bardem. … In the trailer, she is heard saying, “I get paid a fortune to do exactly what I love doing. I work side by side with my husband, who is genuinely impressed by me. And all I have to do to keep it is kill for 36 weeks in a row, and then do it again the next year.”
… Speaking with Variety, Kidman said: “The strange thing about Lucille Ball is that everyone thinks we’re remaking the I Love Lucy show, and it’s so not that. It’s about Lucy and Desi and their relationship and their marriage. It’s very deep, actually.”
… Being the Ricardos also stars Nina Rianda, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale, Clark Gregg and Oscar winner J.K. Simmons. It is set to hit theaters on December 10 and will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video starting December 21.
Lucy and Desi's daughter Lucie Arnaz is the Executive Producer of the film.
