Being the Ricardos (2021)
The release date of Being the Ricardos is yet to be announced by Amazon Studios. The 2015’s project that was all set to release by 2017 has now begun filming in 2021. The latest updates, however reveal that the filming has already commenced. Some stills from the shoot were doing rounds on the internet lately where Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem were barely recognizable. Fans went crazy over the first look of the main leads. Wearing yellow pants, a pale yellow scarf, and a checkered topcoat, Kidman nails the look. Javier, on the other hand, in his green tuxedo coat and vintage hairstyle yet again has fans swooning over him. Luci and Arnaz married in 1940 and, after 20 years of togetherness, parted ways. Both Luci and Desi are not among us and left the world before many of us were even born.

Cate, in 2021 walked out of the project given the delay and the pandemic. Earlier this year, the creators confirmed that Nicole will be starring alongside Javier Bardem, portraying Lucie and Desi respectively.
Along with that, the list of the cast continues further; J. K. Simmons as William Frawley, Nina Arianda as Vivian Vance, Tony Hale as Jess Oppenheimer, Alia Shawkat as Madelyn Pugh, and Jake Lacy as Bob Carroll Jr. Other significant additions that were made to the cast by the production are Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, Jake Lacy, and Clark Gregg.

Kidman and Javier both have big shoes to fill as they have to catch up to that charm and persona of the comedy legends of the 1950s.
