Martin Sheen will star in his friend Warren Beatty's film about Howard Hughes.
The Amazing Spider-Man actor has signed up for the movie, although his role has not yet been revealed, reported Deadline.
Warren will play Hughes in the as-yet-untitled film, which also stars his wife Annette Bening and Matthew Broderick.
While little is known about the plot, it is thought to focus on Hughes' assistant (played by Alden Ehrenreich) and his love interest (Lily Collins).
Warren will also produce and direct the film, which has been in the works for over 25 years.
Last month it was reported that production on the film was already under way.
