Like Crazy star Felicity Jones takes a role in Warren Beatty's Howard Hughes film
Posted by: Zack Bruce
I’ll admit I am a little late to the Felicity Jones party. I have yet to see Ricky Gervais’ CEMETERY JUNCTION, which apparently Jones shines in. My lady wants to see LIKE CRAZY because she’s a sucker for romance and Anton Yelchin.
The actress is the choice selection for the female lead in Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes film. This will go into a different direction than that of Martin Scorsese’s AVIATOR. Jones will play a young woman who develops a relationship with Hughes’s young driver and confidante, before she falls in love with Hughes. Of course, Beatty will take on the role of Hughes.
The film has finally got off the ground with financing since Paramount dropped out and New Regency stepped in as a co-financier. Several other actors are being looked at for parts in the film including Justin Timberlake, Alden Ehrenreich, Annette Bening, Jack Nicholson, Alec Baldwin and Owen Wilson. If Beatty gets one of those names on board, then he may actually get this project going at a steady pace.
