Robin Williams May Be The Angriest Man
How to kill 90 minutes in Brooklyn...

Robin Williams May Be The Angriest Man

Robin Williams has been taking things reatively easy lately, following his heart surgery. He's currently out doing the rounds for George Miller's Happy Feet sequel however, in which he has two voice roles, and Williams has revealed to MovieHole that we may see him back on-screen in the flesh before long, in The Angriest Man In Brooklyn.

Neither a sentimental kids film of the type for which Williams is justly famed, nor necessarily one of his occasional totally serious turns (Good Will Hunting, Insomnia, One Hour Photo), The Angriest Man involves a migraine-sufferer who learns he has an aggressive form of cancer and only about ninety minutes to live. Which, wow, that's seriously aggressive.

The thrust of the story then, is what our hero choses to do with that hour-and-a-half. Scope for a sentimental drama along the emotional lines of a What Dreams May Come or a Patch Adams then, we'd surmise, but Moviehole's lengthy synopsis also suggests there's the potential for some manic running around.

The Angriest Man In Brooklyn is an English-language remake of the Israeli film Mar Baum, directed in 1998 by Assi Dayan. This version's been developing for a while, and has a screenplay by Daniel Taplitz, who wrote this year's Red Dog. Richard Shepard (The Hunting Party, The Matador) was once attached to direct, but the director's chair is currently vacant. That may quickly change though, if and when Williams commits to star.
