Michael Keaton To Play A Superhero Again (Kinda) In BIRDMAN

Right off the bat (no pun intended) I better explain this one - the movie isn't actually about a superhero, it's a dark comedy from Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu about an actor (Keaton) who once played a superhero and is trying to recapture some former glory..



This might just be the closest we ever get to the mighty Michael Keaton playing a superhero again. The former Batman is set to star in Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu's (21 Grams, Babel) ensemble comedy drama Birdman for Fox Searchlight and New Regency. The story deals with an actor who played a superhero back in his heyday deciding to put on a play on Broadway based on a short story by Raymond Carver. Things don't go to plan however when his egotistical lead actor threatens to hamstring the production. Deadline have just announced that Edward Norton will play that character, and they'll be joined by Emma Stone, Naomi Watts and Zach Galifianakis. Quite a cast eh? Obviously this can't be regarded as a CBM, but we figured there are enough Keaton fans on here that it'd be of some interest. Birdman will be produced by Inarritu, John Lesher and Robert Graf. The director also wrote the script with Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris and Armando Bo.
