Keaton plays a washed-up actor who used to be known for his iconic role as feathered superhero, Birdman. However, having decided to hang up the cape, offers of work dried up quite some time ago…
However, Keaton plans to have one last throw of the showbiz dice by turning his experiences into a Broadway production, which proves to be slightly more challenging than he had first imagined.
Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu and co-starring Naomi Watts, Edward Norton and Andrea Riseborough, Birdman will open in the UK on 2 January 2015.
