Up and coming British star of Like Crazy, Felicity Jones, may just have bagged the lead in Warren Beatty's new untitled film about reclusive industrialist Howard Hughes, according to Deadline.

Justin Timberlake is being considered for the male lead, while Beatty himself would play the part of Hughes. In the flick, Jones's character will fall in love with Timberlake's driver, who works for the famous recluse. Beatty's other half Annette Bening, Jack Nicholson, Alec Baldwin and Owen Wilson are also said to be up for roles, but none have been offered gigs yet.

Beatty hasn’t appeared in a film since the flop, Town and Country, and hasn’t directed since the flop, Bulworth. Let's hope he isn't three for three.
