A good hero doesn’t die. He finds an analogue replacement film to star in! That’s what’s happening with the upcoming Birdman, as that film about heroes and broadway is hitting the big screen soon. And it’s found several actors for the project, including a former Batman and an incredible Hulk.
Announced back in December, the Alejandro Inaritu directed film will star Michael Keaton as the Birdman, an acotr famous for playing the role of the super heroic and avian themed Birdman. Thing is, Keaton wants to escape that fame, and become more renowned for Broadway musicals, which he attempts to do in the film. Shenanigans ensue.
Joining Keaton, is Emma Stone as his daughter, Naomi Watts as an actress, Zach Galifianakis as a Broadway producer and Edward Norton in an unspecified role. Filming kicks off later this month, with Robert Graf and John Lesher on production duties.
