It’s been a long time coming, but finally we’re happy to announce the return of Michael Keaton. We’ve seen very little from the one time Batman, one time Ghost with the Most and one-time Mr Mom in recent years, but he’s just secured a plum role to take over as the President of the United States.

Nup, Bush hasn’t been pushed aside in favour of Mikey K, but the actor will indeed be taking the form of the nation’s leader in the new film “First Daughter”, starring opposite former Creek-ster Katie Holmes.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Keaton will star as a president whose daughter (Katie Holmes) goes to college and falls into a fairy-tale romance with a dashing graduate student (Marc Blucas) only to find that her prince has a secret agenda.

"First Daughter" is being directed by Forest Whitaker from a Jessica Bendinger script. John Davis is producing through his Davis Entertainment banner, with Davis Entertainment president Wyck Godfrey also producing. Regency senior vp production Kara Francis and president Sanford Panitch are overseeing the project, which is being fully financed by Regency.

The last we saw of Keaton was in TV’s “Live from Baghdad”, and before that in the little-seen “Quicksand” and “A Shot at Glory”. His last theatrical release was “Jack Frost”, in which he starred as, ahem, a snowman.

They’ve been rumours recently that he’s interested in doing the long awaited sequel to “Beetlejuice”, but nothing concrete.
