Alec Baldwin Joins Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes Movie

Alec Baldwin has joined Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes biopic and will play Robert Maheu, a key confidant of the eccentric billionaire.

Beatty is producing, directing and starring as Hughes in the untitled movie, funded by Ron Burkle, Steve Bing, Windsor Media’s Terry Semel, Arnon Milchan’s New Regency and James Packer and Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment.

Ratner and Beatty are producing. Worldview Entertainment is co-financing and its toppers Christopher Woodrow and Molly Conners are also producers.

Martin Sheen, Matthew Broderick and Annette Bening also star. Alden Ehrenreich plays  Hughes’ assistant and Lily Collins will play his romantic interest.

Maheu, a former spy, said that he never saw Hughes and received all his instructions from notes and telephone. He was dismissed by Hughes in 1970 in a power struggle and later won a libel suit against Hughes that was overturned.

Baldwin is repped by CAA.

News was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
