Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts and Zach Galifianakis have signed on for "Birdman," a dark comedy by director Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu (21 Grams). The plan is to begin shooting in April. The story follows a former actor, who once played an iconic superhero, as he mounts a Broadway play in an attempt to reclaim past glory. However, the play's egotistical leading man threatens to ruin everything. Keaton, who played Batman in two movies, is the comic book movie star trying to regain his credibility. Stone will play Keaton's daughter, fresh from rehab and now his assistant. Watts will be an actress in the play, while Galifianakis will play the production's conniving producer. »
