Former Batman to co-star in the Need for Speed movie

Michael Keaton to play the "reclusive and eccentric host of an underground supercar race."

Former Batman actor Michael Keaton will join Breaking Bad co-star Aaron Paul in the upcoming Need for Speed flick.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Keaton will play the "reclusive and eccentric host of an underground supercar race" who recruits the best drivers from around the world. This will include Paul's character who joins the sordid world of street racing after getting framed - and then pursued - by his dickish ex-partner played by Domonic Cooper.

But more importantly, it will have cars crashing into each other at high speed. What's not to like?

Dreamworks' Need for Speed movie is due out 7th February 2014.
