Keaton Discusses Storytelling Approach For BIRDMAN

A new featurette has been released for the upcoming psychological film Birdman, featuring comic book movie staples Michael Keaton and Emma Stone.


In this video, Keaton discusses the “levels on levels” storytelling of the movie, commenting how complicated the threads are compared to his past projects.

Birdman is a dark comedy that follows a former actor, who once played an iconic superhero, as he mounts a Broadway play based on a Raymond Carver short story in a bid to reclaim past glory. However, the play’s egotistical leading man threatens to throw everything down the tubes.

It is being directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu (21 Grams). He also wrote the script with Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris and Armando Bo. Apart from Keaton and Stone, the cast includes Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover), Edward Norton (The Incredible Hulk), and Naomi Watts (King Kong).

Check the full featurette via the video above.
