Warren Beatty Does Comedy For Paramount

More than a decade since his last time behind the camera with 1998’s “Bullworth”, Warren Beatty is now set to write, direct, produce and star in an untitled comedy for Paramount Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Beatty’s own original screenplay, plot details about the film are unknown. Paramount CEO Brad Grey says “Warren’s script is quintessential Beatty, elegantly written and wonderfully entertaining. It is our privilege to have one of the great artists in the history of the film industry come home to Paramount.”

Shooting will kick off later this year. Beatty directed 1978’s “Heaven Can Wait” and 1981’s “Reds” for the studio.
