Michael Keaton, Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis to Star in Alejandro González Iñárritu Comedy

Alejandro González Iñárritu’s oeuvre—which includes Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel, and Biutiful—is brilliant, but it isn’t particulary hilarious (unless, of course, you think dog fighting is a total riot). That is why it’s a bit surprising to learn that González Iñárritu’s next feature, Birdman, is set to be a comedy. Featuring Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, and Zach Galifianakis, Birdman follows the Broadway production of a play based on a Raymond Carver story. Keaton will star as a marquee actor trying to reclaim his artistic credibility. How very Bullets Over Broadway, only without the mob, Woody Allen’s neuroses, or Jennifer Tilly.
