First look at Warren Beatty’s Rules Don’t Apply, with Alden Ehrenreich
Entertainment Weekly has our first look at Warren Beatty’s Rules Don’t Apply, his first film as a director since 1998’s Bulworth. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!, the upcoming Han Solo spin-off movie) and Lily Collins (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Mirror Mirror), and features Beatty as the reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes.

“I never lost my curiosity about him,” says Beatty of his decades-long attempt to make a movie about Hughes. “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 filmmaker and Hollywood legend — who hasn’t so much as appeared in a film since 2001’s Town & Country — also emphasizes that “This ain’t a biopic about Howard Hughes,” and that “It has some good laughs in it.”
The film’s star-studded cast also includes Haley Bennett, Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, Steve Coogan, Martin Sheen, Ed Harris, Oliver Platt and Annette Bening.
20th Century Fox is expected to release Rules Don’t Apply theatrically in the U.S. on November 11.
