Two days ago we reported that some great cast is on board for Alejandro Gonzalez Inaritu‘s upcoming Birdman. Today, we’re here to update that list because we’ve just learned that Edward Norton has joined the project as well! Get ready, Norton jumps in to play the lead stage actor with big…ego!
So, as you already know, Birdman will revolve around Michael Keaton‘s character – an actor famous for having once played a popular superhero over a three-day period during which he makes an attempt to mount a Broadway play.
The rest of the cast will also include Emma Stone as his daughter, Zach Galifianakis as the production’s conniving producer and Naomi Watts as an actress in the play.
As for Edward Norton, he comes in to play the lead stage actor in Keaton’s play whose ego threatens the former superhero actor’s comeback.
Inaritu will direct the movie from a script he co-wrote with Armando Bo, Alexander Dinelaris and Nicolas Giacobone and the production should start in New York this April!
Stay tuned for more!
