Robin Williams

Though his last film Son of No One didn't fare too well with the box office or critics, director Dito Montiel has a new film at Lionsgate awaiting a release date called Empire State, and a future project with an interesting lead actor. Variety has word that Robin Williams will lead Montiel's drama Boulevard, a drama written by Douglas Soesbe which follows a devoted husband in a marriage of convenience until a run-in with a guarded young man forces him to come to terms with his own secrets. The film will also mark a big debut for up and coming actor Roberto Aguire, who has an uncredited role in Struck by Lightning.

Williams has been pretty low key on the big screen following Old Dogs in 2009, but he did reprise his voice role in Happy Feet 2. In addition, Williams also had two great guest appearances on the FX comedy series "Wilfred" and "Louie." Very soon Williams will have quite the return on the big screen as he stars in The Big Wedding, a romantic comedy from Lionsgate, the indie The Angriest Man in Brooklyn and a small role in The Butler as Dwight D. Eisenhower. Lately the choices by Williams have been all over the board, but it'd be nice for him to get a role that could bring him back to the Oscars. Could this be it?
