Michael Keaton has signed up for a showy role in racing movie Need For Speed.
The former Batman star will play the "reclusive and eccentric host of an underground supercar race", according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.
Michael, 61, joins Dominic Cooper, Aaron Paul and British actress Imogen Poots in the movie, which is an adaptation of the video game franchise.
The film follows an underground racecar driver, played by Breaking Bad actor Aaron, who is framed and sent to prison when his best friend is murdered during a race.
Mamma Mia! star Dominic will play an ex-NASCAR driver and Imogen looks set to portray a car dealer who does business with the pair.
Michael will next be seen as villainous Raymond Sellars in the new RoboCop movie.
