Felicity Jones in Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes Film

Warren Beatty has found his new leading lady. Buzzworthy Sundance ingenue Felicity Jones has landed the main female role in Beatty's new film about Howard Hughes, reports Deadline; you may know Jones from her role in the current drama Like Crazy, where she romances Anton Yelchin. Beatty's Hughes film, which he has written and will direct and star in as Hughes, casts Jones as a woman who first falls for Hughes's young driver before moving on to an affair with the much older (and famously reclusive) industrialist. Deadline also reports that Justin Timberlake is among the names being tossed around to play the driver, so watch this space.
