Felicity Jones cast in Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes biopic


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Felicity Jones gives a raw, heart-on-her-sleeve performance in Drake Doremus’ Sundance hit “Like Crazy,” one which has triggered a breakthrough year for the young actress. While she has stayed busy acting prior to “Crazy,” the young-lovers drama is kicking open new doors for the fragile actress.

Warren Beatty, for example, has cast Jones as the female lead of his planned Howard Hughes biopic, Deadline reports. The Hollywood icon will direct the as-yet-untitled biopic from a screenplay he wrote. Jones reportedly will play a young woman who falls for Hughes’ driver before eventually moving on to the eccentric millionaire.

Deadline says that Beatty’s deep into the casting process, and might be considering Justin Timberlake for the role of Hughes. They also add that parts could be carved out for Annette Bening, Alec Baldwin and Owen Wilson, to name just a few.

Beatty’s film would begin shooting next year. Jones, meanwhile, recently wrapped filming another film with “Crazy” director Doremus. And she’s hoping to get some traction in the ongoing awards race for her tender, vulnerable “Crazy” turn.

Here we have exclusive video of Jones accepting the New Hollywood Award from Doremus at the Hollywood Film Awards, held last month at the Beverly Hilton.
