Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz's daughter Lucie Arnaz commented on the discussion encompassing the actors that will portray her parents in an impending film.

"Stop arguing about who should play it - 'she doesn't look like her, her nose isn't the same she isn't as amusing, '" Arnaz said, poking fun at the complaints around Kidman's casting. Executive producers are Jenna Block, David Bloomfield of Escape Artists, Stuart Besser, Lucie Arnaz, Desi Arnaz, Jr. and Lauren Lohman. The announcement was met with a lot of controversy as many fans were hoping to see Debra Messing get the role.

"But I felt I should just at least try to calm the waters here", she said. "It should be Carole Cook, I don't know". Here's the deal, what you should understand. She clarified for viewers that the Sorkin title will not be an I Love Lucy reboot or anything of the sort.

The new I Love Lucy movie will star Kidman, with Arnaz stating that the story will follow Lucille's complicated relationship with her husband Desi, and is not meant to be "a remake of I Love Lucy". Further, Ball's daughter noted about the film, "Nobody has to impersonate Lucy Ricardo nor do the Vitameatavegamin routine, or. any of the silly things".

Discouraging fans from bickering any longer about who should play her mother, Lucie promises that everyone will be satisfied once they see the final product. And remember, Nicole and Javier are playing Lucille and Desi, not Lucy and Ricky. "I don't think you'll be disappointed with that however", Arnaz added. The nose isn't the same, she isn't as amusing, just trust us.

Fox News reported that Lucie was confident about the flick will not bring disappointments as she reiterated that the movie isn't her parents" "whole story", nor is it "a biopic from cradle to grave'.
