Michael Keaton in talks to star in David Frankel's What Is Life Worth

Iconic actor Michael Keaton is making headlines again, as its been announced that the BATMAN actor is in talks to star in director David Frankel's WHAT IS LIFE WORTH, a biopic based on the memoir of Kenneth Feinberg.

The Black List script is penned by Max Borenstein, and is said to deliver an Erin Brockovich/Spotlight-type story of Ken Feinberg, a powerful insider D.C. lawyer put in charge of the 9/11 Fund, who in almost 3 years of pro bono work on the case, fights off the cynicism, bureaucracy and politics associated with administering government funds and in doing so, discovers what life is worth.

Keaton, who recently wrapped production on Tim Burton's DUMBO for Disney, has been enjoying an uptick in his career as of late, by appearing in such recent films as the Oscar-winning BIRDMAN, SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING, AMERICAN ASSASSIN, and John Lee Hancok's THE FOUNDER.

Upon signing on the dotted line, the BEETLEJUICE actor will no doubt make for a compelling lead for the telling of Feinberg's tale. Be sure to keep your eye out for any updates regarding this timely political drama as they happen.

In the meantime, be sure to check out Keaton when he stars as V. A. Vandemere in Burton's live-action version of Disney's DUMBO, which is set to arrive on March 29, 2019.
