Michael Keaton will star in the movie “Knox Goes Away.”

The 70-year-old actor will perform both in front of and behind the camera in a noir thriller written by Gregory Poirier.

At the center of the film is an assassin who, after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of dementia, is given a chance to redeem himself by saving the life of his separated adult son.

But he has to fight the police approaching him as well as the clock beating in his rapidly declining mind.

The film is produced by Trevor Matthew and Nick Gordon of Brookstreet, as well as Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta of Sugar23. Filming will begin in Los Angeles in late August.

Michael is going to reprise the role of Bruce Wayne / Batman in the upcoming films “Flash” and “Batgirl”, and says that his priority was to make a good film when he returned to the role.

He said, “It should be good. There’s no reason to do it if it’s not good. I’m not going to change anything.”

Keaton explained that he was tempted to return to the role of Batman even before Warner Bros. turned to him to star in “Flash”.

He recalled, “I thought, ‘Boy, what would that be?’ And then, by chance, there were grunts, and I got a call from Warner Bros. They wanted to talk to me about something, and there were hints of Batman. “

The “Beetlejuice” star said he was “having fun” on the blockbuster, and praised the work of director Andy Musketti.

Michael said, “I just jumped in and had fun. Why don’t you? You know, I mean, director Andy Musketti is fantastic, and it’s really creative. I don’t know. It’s fun.”
