Michael Keaton, our current harbinger of Best Picture winners, has selected his next film that I guess now we'll have to keep an eye on. The Spotlight and Birdman star has reportedly signed on to next star in American Assassin, Kill the Messenger director Michael Cuesta's film based on the novel of the same name. Keaton will play "Cold War veteran Stan Hurley," the CIA officer who trains and later teams with the film's hero, Mitch Rapp, a former counter-terrorism agent recruited by the CIA after his girlfriend is killed in the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing. To be honest, it does not really sound like this is going to be Best Picture material. Oh well. You can't win them all, Keaton.
