Warren Beatty Plots Film Return with Howard Hughes-Themed Project

Warren Beatty Plots Film Return with Howard Hughes-Themed Project

Warren Beatty is prepping a new film that will bring him back into theaters for the first time since 2001.

Showbiz 411 reports the actor/auteur, known for taking his time between movie projects, will star and write a film based loosely on Howard Hughes.

How loosely remains to be seen, as it’s possible the story will follow a Hughes-like character’s romance with a younger woman without being an exact copy of the real person’s life.

What we do know is that a production office is in full swing at New Regency, the company making the film with Beatty. New Regency is newly hot these days with the arrival of Brad Pitt’s production company, and a major credit for “12 Years a Slave.” They’ve also got the next Cameron Crowe film, and Ben Affleck’s “Gone Girl.”

Beatty is known for both romantic fare like Heaven Can Wait as well as politically charged films from his progressive bent (Bulworth, Reds). 

His last acting role, in the 2001 film Town and Country, proved to be one of the decade’s biggest box office duds.
