Michael Keaton To Appear in Need For Speed Movie
Former Batman Star to Play “Reclusive and Eccentric Host of an Underground Supercar Race”
Michael Keaton, whose many roles include playing Batman, will join Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul in appearing in a new Need For Speed movie.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Keaton will play the “reclusive and eccentric host of an underground supercar race” who recruits the best drivers from around the world. This will include Paul’s character who joins the sordid world of street racing after getting framed – and then pursued – by his ex-partner played by Domonic Cooper.
Dreamworks’ Need For Speed is scheduled for release 7th February 2014 and with Aaron Paul, a man who used to be Batman, and cars smashing into each other here, there and everywhere, it sounds pretty darn good!
