Fox Searchlight Finds a Home For “Birdman”

Fox Searchlight Finds a Home For "Birdman"

He once played “Batman” so I guess he figured he’d give “Birdman” a shot.  Michael Keaton’s collaboration with director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, “Birdman”, has been given a release date slot by distributor Fox Searchlight of October 17th.  The film, which focuses on an actor who portrays an iconic superhero (hmmmmm, where have I heard this before) trying to launch a Broadway play while his private life is in a constant state of flux, also stars Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton and Naomi Watts.  October 17th is also the launching pad date for Relativity’s “Best of Me”, Universal’s “Dracula Untold” and Fox’s animated “Book of Life”.
