Ginnifer Goodwin and Nicholas Hoult have signed on for Tom Ford's directorial debut A Single Man, which is an adaptation of Christopher Isherwood's 1964 novel.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pair join Colin Firth, Julianne Moore and Matthew Goode.

Goodwin is Mrs. Strunk, a suburban mom who doesn't share her husband's dislike of their neighbor, a gay professor (Firth). Hoult will play Kenny, a sexually ambiguous grad student who shows an unusual interest in the professor.

Principal photography begins this week in Los Angeles.
