Film legend Warren Beatty has wrapped principal photography on his Howard Hughes project--the director's first feature in almost 20 years--after a 74-day shoot.  The film's plot is being kept under wraps, but reportedly focuses on a late-life affair the aviation pioneer (Beatty) had with a much younger woman (Lily Collins). Beatty is 77, Collins 25. 

It's taken quite some time for Beatty's film to take off: just this February, Deadline reported that billionaires Ron Burkle and Steve Bing, Windsor Media’s Terry Semel, Arnon Milchan’s New Regency and James Packer’s and Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment had finally come together to finance the roughly $27 million production.

Beatty wrote the film and will star as the older Hughes, joined by Alden Ehrenreich as Hughes's assistant.  In addition, Martin Sheen, Annette Bening and Matthew Broderick will also star, along with Alec Baldwin as Robert Maheu, a confidante of Hughes who purportedly received all his instructions from the idiosyncratic billionaire via notes and phone calls.

According to Roger Friedman, per usual Beatty demanded many takes for each scene scene and has joked that he has a year of editing ahead of him. Maybe Cannes next year.
