By Euronews

<p>Hollywood actor and director Warren Beatty is back after fifteen years. </p> <p>He plays <a href="http://variety.com/2016/film/features/warren-beatty-rules-dont-apply-hollywood-return-1201911831/">American entrepreneur Howard Hughes</a> in ‘Rules don’t apply’, which he also wrote and directed. Set in 1950’s Hollywood, the film follows the forbidden romance between a young actress and a driver. </p> <p>The 79-year-old Oscar winner says he’s delighted to be back with this project which was two decades in the making: “It’s different every time you do it. I had a lot of fun. I had a great cast. I had a great crew, and I like the story. The story is funny. The story is sad. I like it.”</p> <p>Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins play the driver and the starlet. They were both thrilled about working with the Hollywood legend.</p> <p>“One of the reasons that I fought so hard to get into this movie for a long time was I felt it was one of the last opportunities I would have to be in the kind of movie that I grew up watching, like these classic Hollywood films. And he (Beatty) is a legend,” said Ehrenreich. </p> <p>“He (Beatty) gets to help you through character, learn how to direct at the same time as knowing the bigger picture of how he is going to edit. Actually, it’s like having a genius in the room,” enthused Collins, the daughter of British icon Phil Collins. </p> <p>Beatty has been keen to emphasise that it’s not a biopic about Howard Hugues, but a film <a href="http://deadline.com/2016/11/warren-beatty-rules-dont-apply-panel-the-contenders-deadline-1201849298/">about sex and romance in the old Hollywood</a>. </p> <p>Featuring an A-list cast including Annette Bening, Matthew Broderick and Alec Baldwin, <a href="http://consequenceofsound.net/2016/10/warren-beatty-went-full-method-by-directing-rules-dont-apply-as-howard-hughes/">Warren Beatty’s ‘Rules Don’t Apply’</a> is on worldwide release from November 23.</p>
