Michael Keaton is in the driver’s seat on “Herbie: Fully Loaded,” joining Lindsay Lohan in Disney’s retooled “Love Bug” franchise.
Angela Robinson (“D.E.B.S.”) is directing.
Keaton, who was last seen in HBO’s “Live From Baghdad,” takes the role after completing the Fox/Regency pic “First Daughter” for director Forest Whitaker.
Original 1968 pic “The Love Bug” starred Dean Jones and Buddy Hackett in a comedy about a car with a mind of its own.
Scripted by Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, “Herbie” sets the famous Volkswagen in the world of NASCAR racing. Robert Simonds and Tracey Trench are producing.
