Warren Beatty to play Howard Hughes!

Warren Beatty to play Howard Hughes!

Now this I’m excited about.

A couple of days back we reported that Warren Beatty is working on a film for Paramount that he’ll, not surprisingly, star in, produce, write and direct (and a week or so before that Beatty announced he had plans for another “Dick Tracy” movie). The prospect of one of our greatest actors and filmmakers working on something again – particuarly since Beatty hasn’t made a film in a decade – is an exciting one, but even more exciting is to learn that the project will see Beatty play Howard Hughes.

Deadline reported :

He will play Howard Hughes, but it’s not really a biopic; part of the plot involves an affair he had with a young woman in the later years of his life. I’ve heard that he’s going top shelf for the ensemble cast he is putting together. Here is who he’s meeting with: Andrew Garfield, Alec Baldwin, Annette Bening, Shia La Beouf, Jack Nicholson, Evan Rachel Wood and Rooney Mara

I love it how Beatty has to ‘meet’ with wife Annette Bening. Wonder if they scheduled in the interview between showering and shaving?

Deadline also pointed out that Baldwin starred in another Hughes flick, “The Aviator” a couple of years ago.

Beatty has wanted to play Hughes forever. The courtship of Baldwin is particularly intriguing, since in Martin Scorsese’s superb Howard Hughes movie The Aviator, Baldwin played Hughes’ main adversary, Pan Am World Airways founder Juan Trippe.

Sounds great.

I was thinking a couple of days ago, what’s Warren Beatty’s best movie? As much as I love “Reds” and “Love Affair” and especially “Bugsy” I guess it comes down to something like “Heaven Can Wait” or “Bonnie & Clyde”? What do you guys think?
