It was clear Beatty was serious the second he uttered, "LaBeouf."

Well, the “untitled comedy” that Warren Beatty had agreed to star in and helm turns out to be a story about an affair that Howard Hughes carried on late in his life. Sidesplitting!

Beatty has been meeting with some A-list talent to co-star in the film that Deadline claims includes “Andrew Garfield, Alec Baldwin, Annette Bening, Shia La Beouf, Jack Nicholson, Evan Rachel Wood and Rooney Mara.” A pretty solid group that appears to be clearly divided between young and old. Perhaps the young ones will play the principal characters in flashbacks.

 

 

Warren Beatty has been wanting to play Hughes for years, so expect him to pull no punches in this passion project. Word is he has completely stopped talking to Bening until she agrees to do the project. What a pro.

Scorcese may have shed some light on the earlier years of Hughes’ life, but it sounds like Christopher Nolan may want to play the back nine, highlighting the reclusive billionaire’s freakier, germaphobe-ier, OCD-ier later life as told in the Michael Drosnin’s 1985 Citizen Hughes: The Power, the Money and the Madness. According to Vulture, this Hughes ran up an $11 million tab at the Beverly Hills Hotel while screening films naked there, gorged on ice cream and codeine, and only trusted Mormons in his dying days. I’ve got a new role model: latter-years Howard Hughes.

I don’t care if The Aviator came out seven short years ago, let’s get Nolan on this sooner rather than later. Just hand The Dark Knight Rises off to Michael Bay or Uwe Boll or something.

If Nolan doesn’t heed my Michael Bay suggestion, then he would probably get going on this in late 2012, to be released in 2014. By then people won’t even remember who Scorcese and DiCaprio are, so it shouldn’t be a big deal that Nolan is covering some familiar ground with this one.
