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.

Warren Beatty, having not stepped behind the camera since Bulworth 13 years ago, is committed to stepping back behind the camera for Paramount for an untitled comedy. And…that’s what we know. Unfortunately, no plot or even theme details have been made available, so right now you should just hang your hopes on the fact that Warren Beatty is going to be both starring in and directing the project, so allow some mild enthusiasm for that fact alone.

Of course, there is no casting info and the only timeline info divulges that the film will begin photography this fall. It’s hard to speculate as to what actors would fit the roles, since we have zero ideas what those roles are. However, Paramount was nice enough to drop this little gem of a quote to offer up no more clarity, “Warren’s script is quintessential Beatty, elegantly written and wonderfully entertaining.”

The script will also be an infamous womanizer.

Court Allows Warren Beatty To Keep Dicking Around With Dick Tracy http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/court-allows-warren-beatty-to-keep-dicking-around-with-dick-tracy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/court-allows-warren-beatty-to-keep-dicking-around-with-dick-tracy/#comments Sat, 26 Mar 2011 03:33:37 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=203855 Beatty won a court case, so he gets to keep the rights to Dick Tracy. Will he ignore them for another couple of decades?

Hey, every cartoon property is getting a movie. Why not Dick Tracy? It has name recognition, but not enough hardcore fanboys to adequately pester a filmmaker who will potentially ruin the franchise. Sounds like a carefree ride to the reboot money bank for whoever has the rights. Well, that’s the problem.

Actor Warren Beatty got the rights to the Pruneface-fighting comic strip detective from Tribune Media Services back in 1985, with the stipulation that if he didn’t utilize the rights (make a TV show or movie) for “a certain period of time,” the rights would revert back to Tribune. Then he made that movie with Madonna in 1990, Dick Something, and then ignored the property for 18 years – until Tribune reminded him a few years ago that he had to use the rights or lose ‘em.

So Beatty started making a Dick Tracy TV special in 2008, but it never was finished and never aired. Tribune was like, “that totally doesn’t count, asshole.” But U.S. District Court Judge Dean D. Pregerson told Tribune they were the assholes, because Beatty gets to keep the rights.

So what’ll he do with the rights to Dick Tracy now? Eh, probably ignore them for another decade or two. Who cares? (Hollywood Reporter)

Matthew Vaughn is apparently fed up with working with little kids in Kick-Ass and teenagers in X-Men: First Class so now he wants to do a super-hero movie about old people. He wants his next project to be The Golden Age, about elderly super-heroes in a retirement home. Cool, it’s like Bubba Ho-Tep but with super-heroes instead of Elvis, JFK, and an ancient mummy. Upgrade? But Vaughn isn’t skimping on ambition when it comes to his vision for the film:

“His wish list is Clint Eastwood, Jack Nicholson, and Warren Beatty to play the retired superheroes who help out their grandchildren when their middle-aged parent screw up the world.”

Right. I’d be incredibly surprised if he got 1 of those 3 names (and it would have to be Nicholson), but there’s now way in the universe he’ll get all 3. Aim a little lower, Matt – How do Mickey Rooney, Dick Van Dyke, and “The Macho Man” Randy Savage sound? (via Deadline)
