Peter Dinklage, Robin Williams & Others in 'Angriest Man in Brooklyn'
Quick - pick five random actors you never imagined would share the screen in one movie. Got your list? This might be pretty close to it. ScreenDaily reports that Robin Williams, Peter Dinklage, Mila Kunis, Melissa Leo, and James Earl Jones have all signed on for The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, a comedy from Field of Dreams director Phil Alden Robinson. The story follows a stand-in doctor who mistakenly tells a patient he has 90 minutes to live, and then must track him down as the man goes on a whirlwind tour of the city to atone for the wrongs of his life. Sounds like a zany comedy with some potential. More below!
Red Dog writer Daniel Taplitz penned the screenplay, and this will easily be the most high profile thing he's written. I trust Robinson as a director, though, because he's been in the game for over twenty years, directing movies like Sneakers (which I just talked about on the newest episode of my podcast) and also writing films like Martin Scorsese's upcoming Sinatra biopic. Filming for The Angriest Man in Brooklyn starts in New York this September, and it should be pretty wild to see how these disparate cast members all end up coming together in the same film. Thoughts?
