Michael Keaton joins Aaron Paul and Dominic Cooper in the Need For Speed movie

Feb. 5, 2013by:

Why do I want to see the NEED FOR SPEED movie? To begin, Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper and Imogen Poots. My latest reason? Michael f*cking Keaton.

The film directed by Scott Waugh is based on the popular video game.

In the adaptation, Paul will play the part of, "local street-racer who partners with a rich and arrogant business associate (Cooper), only to find himself framed by his colleague and sent to prison. After his stint in the joint, he joins a New York-to-Los Angeles race to get revenge. But when the ex-partner learns of the scheme, he puts a massive bounty on the racers head, forcing him to run a cross-country gauntlet of illegal racers in all manner of supercharged vehicles."

Keaton nabbed the role of, "the reclusive and eccentric host of an underground supercar race where he invites the best drivers from around the world."

We will get to see Keaton next in the update of ROBOCOP with Joel Kinnaman in the leading role.

Seems like everyone loves a bit of Keaton on here and I can't blame them, they guy deserves more screen time. Whether its comedy or playing a sociopath he does it all so well. Desperate Measures was a good entertaining movie with a little success.
Also whatever happened to Andy Garcia?

cool pic of Keaton. Where did ya get it?

I'm a litlte scared for this film because movies made from video games tend to not do very well, but I love Michael Keaton and he deserves to be in more great films! I'd love to see him in some more comedies kinda like what he did in the 80's, or something like Multiplicity!

Love the man

Like the Soloist said, that "The Keat" isn't a bigger star is a crying shame. Even if this role sounds like a minor one it will still be nice to see the man on the big screen where he belongs.

We all need a little more Michael Keaton in our lives. Seriously, it's a CRIME and SHAME that the man does not have a bigger career. Im excited to see what he does in Robocop and now I am excited to see him in this.

I would even love to see him come back to drape the cowl once more for Justice League. If that were to happen, I could die a happy person.
