Oscar-nominated Field of Dreams screenwriter/director Phil Alden Robinson
will direct The Angriest Man in Brooklyn
from a screenplay by Red Dog writer Daniel Taplitz
. Well, Robinson got the quick-pick five random thesps to join this high concept comedy.
No word on what actors are in which roles, but the picture stars Robin Williams, Mila Kunis
and Peter Dinklage
, alongside Melissa Leo
and James Earl Jones
The zany comedy sets off as a stand-in doctor mistakenly tells an obnoxious patient he has 90 minutes to live and then must track him down as the man heads out on a whirlwind tour of the city to atone for his wrongs.
Robinson had this to say:
When I read Dan Taplitz’s amazing screenplay I laughed and cried until I realised that I wanted so much to see this film that I was actually eager to spend a few years of my life getting it made.
Williams also commented frenetically:
I read the script and said wow! I love the fact that it’s so fun and honest. The idea of being that nasty and funny is a gift.
Well, filming for The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is expected to start in New York this September.
