Michael Keaton to Star in and Direct the Noir Thriller KNOX GOES AWAY

Michael Keaton (Batman, Spider-Man: Homecoming) is set to star in and direct the noir thriller film project Knox Goes Away. This actually sounds like an interesting film and another great role for Keaton to play.

The story follows “a contract killer who, after being diagnosed with a fast-moving form of dementia, is presented with the opportunity to redeem himself by saving the life of his estranged adult son. But to do so he must race against the police closing in on him as well as the ticking clock of his own rapidly deteriorating mind.”

Keaton has been involved with a lot of great projects in recent years with Dopesick, The Protege, Worth, The Founder, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and he’s set to reprise his role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in The Flash and Batgirl.

Gregory Poirier wrote the script for the movie, which is being produced by Brookstreet’s Trevor Matthews and Nick Gordon and Sugar23’s Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta. Carter Stanton will executive produce for Brookstreet and Jillian Kay for Sugar23.
