Entertainment Weekly has just revealed our first look at Warren Beatty's return to the big screen with Rules Don't Apply. The Howard Hughes film is a pet project of the legendary actor and will mark the first time the actor has directed a film in 18 years.
Beatty had this to say about the project:
“I’ve had the idea of making a movie about Howard Hughes in mind for a long time,” says Beatty. “We never met, but I sometimes feel like I knew everybody who knew Howard and I never lost my curiosity about him. It’s just that I don’t run around doing movies all the time.”
The film is actually not a biopic, but centers around "Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins), a small-town beauty queen and devout Baptist who arrives in Hollywood in the late ‘50s as an aspiring actress under contract to Hughes. At the airport, she meets her personal driver Frank Forbes (Hail, Caesar! breakout and the new Han Solo, Alden Ehrenreich). He’s new on the job and also comes from a religiously conservative background. Their instant attraction not only tests their moral beliefs, but also goes against Hughes’ cardinal rule: No employee is allowed to have an intimate relationship with a contract actress. Needless to say, the idiosyncratic Hughes is not a man used to being defied."
The film should be one to look forward to this fall, and just to note, the film is also slotted in prime awards consideration season. Check out the images below and than sound off in the comments section with your thoughts.
Rules Don't Apply is set to hit theaters on November 11th, 2016.
