Keaton will be joined in Birdman by fellow superhero movie stars, Edward Norton (The Incredible Hulk) and Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man), while Naomi Watts and Hangover star Zach Galifianakis fill out the cast. The dark comedy is being directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu.
Here’s a synopsis from Deadline:
“A former actor (Keaton) who once played a superhero puts together a play on Broadway that is based on a short story by Raymond Carver. Unfortunately, the ex-superhero’s plans to soar again are threatened by his egotistical lead stage actor. Norton will play that actor.”
Looks like Norton is playing on his real-life “difficult’ image, while it’s good to see Keaton continuing to pick-up work.
Sounds great, can’t wait for this one.
