Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes Movie Gets November Release

Fox has set an awards-season release date of Nov. 11 for Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes movie and titled it “Rules Don’t Apply.”

The film — the first that Beatty has directed since 1998’s “Bullworth” — is a romantic comedy-drama set in 1958 Hollywood with Beatty portraying Hughes. Beatty also wrote and produced.

The film stars Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich, an actress and driver who work for Hughes — who forbids romance between his employees. The cast includes Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, Steve Coogan and Annette Bening.

Baldwin is playing Robert Maheu, a key confidante of the eccentric billionaire. Maheu, a former spy, said that he never saw Hughes and received all his instructions from notes and telephone.

The film has been 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. Jeffrey Soros is a producer on the film and financing via Considered Entertainment.

Other titles opening on Nov. 11 include Universal’s comedy “Almost Christmas,” Sony’s Ang Lee drama “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” and EuropaCorp’s drama “Shut In.”

The news was first reported by Entertainment Weekly.
