Michael Keaton Joins Larry David’s Movie

Though he’s played Batman and Beetlejuice, it feels like Michael Keaton’s in some form of semi-retirement. Throughout the 80′s and 90′s he would show up in movie and usually be great in them, even if the material wasn’t up to snuff, but for much of the last ten years he’s been scarce. Recently, he had a great supporting performance in ‘Toy Story 3′ and then a juicy role in ‘The Other Guys.’ Now he’s going to be in Larry David‘s upcoming movie.

Keaton himself spilled this when he talked to Grantland (and it’s a wonderful and insightful interview) about what he’s been up to, and he describes the project as such:

“this movie — really an improvised movie — where he sets it all up in the outline and says, “Here’s what happens … “”

Sounds similar to David’s ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ working methods, and if David wants Keaton, it’s got to be for something good. We miss funny Keaton; his career was dragged in two directions – serious and childish – which worked against his talents as a light comic performer. We’ve also heard that Jon Hamm might also be involved, while Greg Mottola was attached to direct at one point, and might still be. We’ll keep you updated on this one, that’s for sure.
