Warren Beatty rejected roles

Warren Beatty considered playing roles as iconic as Clark Kent, Michael Corleone, and Jack Horner. The actor, writer, producer, and director, for various and understandable reasons, turned these parts down. The list of high-profile movies he’s passed on could probably go on and on, but the actor, who returns with this month’s Rules Don’t Apply, recently discussed why he decided against starring in The GodfatherSuperman, and more.

Below, learn why the actor turned down some now famous roles.

Rules Don't Apply Trailer

Warren Beatty gives a towering performance in Rules Don’t Apply. The film features one of Beatty’s most nuanced and vulnerable performances as the ambitious, charismatic, and deeply troubled Howard Hughes. Fans eager to see the actor, writer, and director’s return likely won’t leave the movie disappointed by his performance. Before Beatty ends his 15-year hiatus from acting next Friday, a new trailer without dialogue has been released for his fifth directorial effort.

It’s been 15 years since Warren Beatty has acted in a movie and 18 years since he stepped behind the camera, so the return of the Hollywood legend as both actor and director in Rules Don’t Apply should be enough to pique the curiosity of anyone with a sense of film history. But if a 79-year-old living legend isn’t enough, this film also features delightful young actors like Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins, a supporting cast stacked with some of your favorite actors, and a new trailer that makes Beatty’s return to the silver screen look like a charming, frothy, and likable time at the movies.

Rules Don’t Apply brings Warren Beatty back to us. Beatty, who hasn’t directed since 1998’s hilarious Bulworth, has returned with a movie that defines “longtime passion project.” Ever since seeing Howard Hughes in-person in 1973, Beatty has wanted to make a film about the man. He finally did it with Rules Don’t Apply, although it’s less a biopic, more of a romance between Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich‘s characters.

Rules Don't Apply Trailer

It’s been 18 years since Warren Beatty was behind the camera with the political comedy Bulworth. Now he’s finally back in the director’s chair with a project that has been kicking around for a long time. Though the project has always been said to focus on Howard Hughes, the first trailer for the film shows that this is more of an ensemble romantic comedy.

Rules Don’t Apply follows the budding romance between a young aspiring actress (Lily Collins) and her married driver (Alden Ehrenreich) as they both have to deal with the eccentricities of the famous billionaire Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty), who employs them both.

It’s been almost two decades since Warren Beatty has directed a film. He last starred in the disastrous Town & Country, but his last directorial effort was 1998’s Bulworth, a hilarious and somewhat overlooked film. The director is famously known for taking his time with each project, but this is his longest hiatus yet. However, we’ll soon see Beatty return to the big screen this November when the actor, director, producer, and writer’s newest picture, now titled Rules Don’t Apply, finally opens in theaters.

Below check out the Rules Don’t Apply first look.

Over two years ago, Warren Beatty was shooting his untitled Howard Hughes film. The actor and director prefers to take his time with each project; he’s always been more focused on quality than quantity. After almost 18 years of waiting, though, we’re finally going to see it this year.

In fact, we might even see two movies from him over the next couple of years, if he decides to try to move forward with the Dick Tracy sequel. The filmmaker indicated that potential project is still on his to-do list. Learn more about the Dick Tracy sequel and the Howard Hughes project below.

Quentin Tarantino's Original Pulp Fiction Cast Wish List

Quentin Tarantino has always been praised for his casting choices, and its obvious that the filmmaker puts a lot of thought into which actors might be good for which characters. The writer/director even seems to write certain roles for particular actors.  Now a copy of Quentin Tarantino’s cast wish-list for Pulp Fiction has made its way online, showing the filmmaker’s original choices for the film’s cast, from first choices to back-up/alternate choices.

You may still get to see someone beat Warren Beatty to the punch making another film about Howard Hughes. (Don’t get your hopes up that it will be Christopher Nolan, however, even though Nolan has talked about wanting to make a Hughes movie.) While Beatty announced his return to writing and directing earlier this year, with Paramount partially backing a film about Hughes, we’ve now seen two major backers pull away. One was Paramount, and the other is key financier Morgan Creek. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

While most people are just now discovering the wonder that is Felicity Jones, I was lucky enough to be on the bandwagon a few months early. As a huge Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant fan, I went out of my way to see their tiny period comedy, and feature directorial debut, Cemetery Junction. The film is a delight and part of the reason is the female lead played by a beautiful, talented actress I’d never seen before named Felicity Jones. Fast forward a few months later, Sundance 2011, and she’s the talk of the town for her performance in Drake Doremus’ Like Crazy, which is now slowly rolling into a theater near you.

Jones has now booked her next big thing and “big” is a bit of an understatement. She’ll play the female lead and sorted love interest in Warren Beatty‘s return to acting and directing, an untitled Howard Hughes love story. Read more about the film, role and actress after the jump. Read More »
