Burton would take on the directorial role, he enthusiastically confirms.

In addition, Burton has also already seen a copy of the script, saying it’s “pretty good.”

According to Consequence of Sound, this all may be due in part to The Killers, who reunited Ryder and Burton for their 2012 video “Here With Me“.

“Michael (Keaton), and her … and that character, I just miss it,” Burton said of Ryder. “There’s some freedom about that character that I love.”

As script-writing takes some time, as does coordinating with actors’ schedules, it may be a while before the film comes to fruition, but hey—at least we know we have at least a chance of seeing Keaton in those monochrome stripes in the near future.
