Birdman (2014) D: Iñárritu; S: Keaton, Stone, Norton, Galifinakis, Watts

"A washed up actor who once played an iconic superhero must overcome his ego and family trouble as he prepares to mount a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim past glory."

Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Zack Galifinakis, Naomi Watts & Michael Keaton...great cast, with the director of Amores Perros & 21 Grams.

Sounds great.

A black comedy that could be the second coming of Michael Keaton.
Very interesting for such a serious director like Iñarritu.

ALEJANDRO GONZÁLEZ IÑÁRRITU’S “BIRDMAN” HAS BEGUN PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY

Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Ryan and Andrea Riseborough to star

LOS ANGELES, CA April 16, 2013 – Fox Searchlight Pictures and New Regency announced today that principal photography on Alejandro González Iñárritu’s black comedy, BIRDMAN, began on April 15th in New York City. They will co-finance the picture with Worldview Entertainment. Iñárritu co-wrote the script with Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, and Armando Bo. The film stars Michael Keaton, Lindsay Duncan, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone, and Naomi Watts. The film will be a New Regency production with Iñárritu and John Lesher serving as producers. Worldview Entertainment’s Christopher Woodrow, Molly Conners and Hoyt David Morgan will executive produce alongside Jim Skotchdopole. The film will be produced by New Regency and Fox Searchlight Pictures will handle marketing and distribution.

“It is thrilling to have such a talented cast to bring this script to life,” says Iñárritu.

“It’s great to be working on Alejandro’s deeply original project with Fox Searchlight and New Regency as they always strive to allow filmmakers to realize their creative vision,” says Lesher.

“We’ve been mesmerized by Alejandro’s work for years. We’re honored to work with this visionary auteur on his imaginative and original dark comedy,” said Claudia Lewis, Fox Searchlight Pictures President of Production.

BIRDMAN or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Keaton) – famous for portraying an iconic superhero – as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself.

The deal was brokered by New Regency’s EVP of Business Affairs Eric Roth and Fox Searchlight Pictures Senior Vice President of Business Affairs Megan O’Brien, and by CAA on behalf of the filmmakers and Worldview Entertainment. The project will be overseen by New Regency’s President Brad Weston and VP of Production Andrew Calof and Fox Searchlight Pictures’ Lewis.

Fox Searchlight Pictures is a specialty film company that both produces and acquires motion pictures. It has its own marketing and distribution operations, and its films are distributed internationally by Twentieth Century Fox. Fox Searchlight Pictures is a unit of Fox Filmed Entertainment, a unit of Fox Entertainment Group.

Worldview Entertainment is a leading independent motion picture production and investment company. The company’s slate includes: James Gray’s “Lowlife” starring Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner; Guillaume Canet’s “Blood Ties” starring Clive Owen; Daniel Espinosa’s “Child 44” starring Tom Hardy with Summit Entertainment; and David Gordon Green’s “Joe” starring Nicolas Cage.

New Regency is engaged in the production and distribution of motion pictures through strategic alliances with media and entertainment companies and was founded by Arnon Milchan, one of the most prolific and successful independent film producers of the past 30 years.

Certainly interested, and a great cast, but I was kind of dissapointed when I clicked on the link that it isn't a Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law movie.

Not the director I imagined for a comedy. Either way. I'm sold.

(Note to self: When you see "Stone" in a cast list, it's Emma Stone, not Sharon Stone.)

Pretty much the same. Except I wanted a movie about Birdman before he was re-imagined as an attorney.

Is it just me, or has Emma Stone gotten really thin?

People in FaceBook are losing their shit because they thought this was based on the cartoon and were ranting over how Hollywood changed his look.

That and I encountered some woman that actually claims that Robocop and The Lost Boys suck.

I'm ready for a Hawkman movie... any day now. After the fight scenes in Legion and now looking at this costume, I want to see Katar Hol, Shayera and a bunch of Thanagarians.

This sounds like it could be fun and I like the cast. It's especially nice to see Keaton in a starring role.

Iñárritu's films usually have great cinematography. Rodrigo Prieto has done all his films except for this one which was done by Cuaron/Malick regular Emmanuel Lubezki.

Iñárritu's next film with Leonardo DiCaprio & Tom Hardy based on the novel The Revenants by Michael Punke sounds interesting : http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1663202/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_1

Yep.

The Mexican Trinity has their own Mexican Trinity... of cinematographers.

Guillermo Del Toro has Guillermo Navarro

Alfonso Cuaron has Emmanuel Lubeski

Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu has Rodrigo Prieto.

That's a lot of good looking movies.
