Robin Williams & Oliver Cooper Join 'A Film By Alan Stuart Eisner'
Though it's been 12 years since we last saw a film from director Andrew Bergman (the man behind films like Stripteasee, It Could Happen to You and Honeymoon in Vegas), that's not stopping the filmmaker from amassing an interesting cast for a new comedy. Deadline has word that Bergman is reuniting with producer Mike Lobell (who was also behind those three aforementioned films) for a film called A Film By Alan Stuart Eisner, and Robin Williams, Shirley MacLaine and breakout Project X star Oliver Cooper are attached to star with Rob Reiner set to make some sort of cameo in the comedy as well. More below!
Deadline says film follows a young documentary filmmaker with a burning desire to bring his family’s amazing and bizarre World War II history to the screen. Considering Reiner's role in This is Spinal Tap, I'm wondering if he has some kind of mentor role to the doc fillmmaker, who I can only assume will be played by Cooper, an actor on the verge of real stardom with a role in Grown Ups 2 forthcoming and now this.
Bergman used to be at the top of his game in the 90's but has stayed quiet since Isn't She Great in 2000 with Nathan Lane, Bette Midler, David Hyde Pierce, John Cleese and Amanda Peet. Lobell isn't one to waste time on projects. After all he spend 14 years getting a remake of Gambit off the ground, and that film hits theaters this year, so hopefully this script which Bergman wrote himself is something special.
