According to THR, Warren Beatty is back in the movie business. Beatty has made a deal with Paramount Pictures to produce, write, direct, and star in an unnamed comedy project based on his own screenplay. The 74 year old Beatty has not made a film since 1998’s Bulworth starring himself and Holly Berry.
Beatty previously directed both Heaven Can Wait and Reds for Paramount Studios.
Paramount CEO Brad Grey announced the project stating, “Warren’s script is quintessential Beatty, elegantly written and wonderfully entertaining.” Grey also went on to say, “It is our privilege to have one of the great artists in the history of the film industry come home to Paramount.”
The project should start production sometime later this year.
