James Mangold to direct a new Buster Keaton biopic

James Mangold (Logan, Indiana Jones 5, Walk The Line, Ford v Ferrari) is working with 20th Century Studios on a new biopic about Buster Keaton. Mangold will direct and produce according to Deadline.

The film is based on the book Buster Keaton: Cut to the Chase by Marion Meade.

Joseph Frank “Buster” Keaton was best known for his silent films, in which his trademark was physical comedy with a consistently stoic, deadpan expression that earned him the nickname “The Great Stone Face.” His films include Sherlock Jr. (1924), The General (1926), and The Cameraman (1928). The General is widely viewed as his masterpiece: Orson Welles considered it “the greatest comedy ever made…and perhaps the greatest film ever made”

There is no word yet on casting and the studio are currently meeting with writers to adapt the book.

Who would you like to see play Keaton in the film?
