Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts to Co-Star in Birdman

We have an early entrant for your favorite movie of 2014: Birdman. Based on a Raymond Chandler short story, the comedy is the latest project from 21 Grams and Biutiful director Alejandro González Iñárritu. Most important, however, The Hollywood Reporter writes that he's cast Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, and Naomi Watts to star. In the movie, Keaton will play a former actor, famous for playing an iconic superhero, who puts on a Broadway play to regain his former glory. Stone plays his fresh-out-of-rehab daughter/assistant. Watts is his co-star and Galifianakis is the play's producer. Though to be fair, we'd probably watch those four just sit and discuss one of Iñárritu's movies.
