tomforddirector.jpgFirst designer and now director? There are whispers today that Tom Ford could be launching into film directing with WWD reporting that he has his eye on a movie adaption of Christopher Isherwood's 1964 novel A Single Man.

The story, which follows a day in the life of a gay man in Los Angeles, shouldn't be too much of a stretch for the acclaimed designer.

Ford has made no secret of the fact that he would like to enter the film biz, but shouldn't that be in front of the camera and not behind it? I mean, have you seen him? He has leading man stamped all over his chiseled face, no?

No word yet from his spokesperson.
