I can tell you there’s no truth to the Internet rumor that Imagine’s Ron Howard has a deal, or is close to a deal, with Warren Beatty to play Richard Nixon in that in-the-works movie about interviewer David Frost and the disgraced U.S. president. I understand that Howard has talked to a few possibilities which include Beatty. But there won’t be a decision for a few weeks. Which probably means, given Warren’s usual hemming and hawing, he’ll be passed over. On the other hand, I would love to see Beatty tackle something completely out of his comfort zone, like this.
