Rooney Mara is in and Andrew Garfield is out of Warren Beatty's Howard Hughes film
Posted by: Zack Bruce
Rooney Mara has been moving up in the world as of late. At first I dismissed her as another flash in the pan but when David Fincher picked her up for two of his films, I had to reevaluate my stance.
Looks like Mara has picked up a role in Warren Beatty’s next film. Yes, Warren Beatty is doing another film. No, it’s not BULLWORTH 2 or DICK TRACY 2. This project is about Howard Hughes but it’s not a biopic and it may be a comedy. Yeah it sounds really weird. Beatty did have Andrew Garfield locked on as the young Hughes and now his reps are saying he was never attached. Garfield can’t commit because he’s already on for a Broadway run of “Death of a Salesman” with Philip Seymour Hoffman.
With Garfield out, there’s no word on what will happen with project. Beatty could go back to the drawing board or just re-cast.
