Keaton, an actor, comedian, and filmmaker, is best known for his work in 'The General' (1926), 'Sherlock Jr' (1924) and Steamboat Bill Jr (1928). His trademark use of physical comedy was often accompanied by a stoic, deadpan expression that earned him the nickname "The Great Stone Face".

The upcoming series, whose name is yet to be released, is apparently based on the book 'Buster Keaton: A Filmmaker's Life', written by James Curtis. Curtis, an American biographer, mostly writes about important figures from the early days of film. According to a report by 'Deadline', the 'Bohemian Rhapsody' actor is set to play Keaton in the new series that's based on the icon’s life. The series is said to be in the works at Warner Bros TV. 

The project would be a fun one for the 'The Little Things' actor, considering the process he went through to come up with a perfect depiction of Freddie Mercury for 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
