Along with these basic bits of information comes the supporting cast, which is appropriately presitigious, and gives credence to Beatty’s claim that this is going to be a bit of a comedy: it’ll star Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, Steve Coogan, and Annette Bening. As for why this thing suddenly seems to have been put into high-gear, who knows? It could very well have to do with the fact that Ehrenreich, who starred in the Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar! was recently named as the new Han Solo. Beatty’s last directorial effort was 1998’s Bulworth, so it’s doubtful he’s suddenly decided to be in a rush.
