So Monday’s guess/presumption was right: Warren Beatty‘s just-announced Paramount film, which Deadline‘s Michael Fleming said would be a comedy, will be about Howard Hughes. The 74 year-old Beatty will play the withered mogul with “part of the plot involving an affair he had with a young woman in the later years of his life,” says Fleming. The woman might be played by Evan Rachel Wood or Rooney Mara. Other possible costars include Andrew Garfield, Alec Baldwin, Annette Bening, Shia La Beouf and Jack Nicholson.
