The world is still in shock over the passing of Robin Williams yesterday and details are still coming out about what is now reportedly said to be an "apparent suicide attempt by hanging" following a battle with severe depression according to CBS News.
With the tragedy of an actor's untimely death though comes the grim business of show business, namely determining the fate of the projects they were involved in. The 63-year-old was a busy man with several films still awaiting release.
Williams was not in the midst of shooting a movie when he died, though he had been developing a sequel to "Mrs. Doutbtfire". Variety reports that the project, which was in the scripting stage, is now in doubt and will probably be scrapped.

After a lengthy investigation, Midnight Rider director Randall Miller, writer-producer Jody Savin and unit production manager/executive producer Jay Sedrish have been charged with involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass in the death of 27-year-old camera assistant Sarah Jones by Georgia's Wayne Superior Court. If the trio are convicted, Georgia law states that the manslaughter conviction could result in a 10-year prison sentence, although the criminal trespass charge carries a 12-month maximum sentence.
On February 20, Sarah Jones was helping to set up a shot on a Doctortown, Georgia train trestle when she was struck by a train. According to Deadline's investigation, the crew waited for two previous trains to pass, before setting up a shot that required actor William Hurt, who has since left this biopic of music legend Gregg Allman, to lay on a heavy hospital bed situated on the train tracks. Unexpectedly, a third train came through, as the »

"You're gonna make me stress vomit, Marcus!" exclaimed Allison Tolman ("Fargo") during our recent webcam chat after I rattled off the high-profile names vying for Emmy nominations in the Movie/Mini Supporting Actress category. (Watch the complete interview below.) According to Gold Derby's exclusive odds, Tolman is in the running against Julia Roberts ("The Normal Heart"), Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett ("American Horror Story: Coven"), Jacqueline Bisset ("Dancing on the Edge"), Ellen Burstyn ("Flowers in the Attic"), Kathy Baker ("Return to Zero") and Janet McTeer ("The White Queen"). -Break- Join the 'Fargo' Emmy discussions going on right now in the Gold Derby message boards That's quite the company to be a part of, especially for a relativel newcomer like Tolman who's starring in her first major project.

Lifetime’s latest acquisition, “Return to Zero,” is a painful portrait of devastating loss, pivoting on a performance by Minnie Driver that acutely captures those raw feelings. Based on writer-producer-director Sean Hanish’s personal experience, the movie chronicles a couple dealing with a still-born baby and the consequences its aftermath produces on their relationship. While the Lifetime-movie crowd will no doubt be able to identify with the emotion, the movie gets a tad uneven in the later going, stumbling toward a resolution that begins to fray around the edges, despite a first-rate cast.
Maggie (Driver) and her husband Aaron (Paul Adelstein) have one of those picture-perfect lives, and they’re going through the usual mix of excitement and anxiety as they prepare for the birth of their first child. Moreover, her best pal (Andrea Anders) is also due a couple of months behind her, meaning there’s no shortage of »

On tap right now are several exclusive stills from Patrick Cunningham's feature directorial debut, Model Home, and since it's Friday, we figured that staring at them would be a great way to pass the time until the 5:00 Pm whistle.
Co-written by Cunningham and producer William Frank, Model Home is being shepherded by High Windows Films and stars Jasper Cole (pictured right and below), Monique Gabriela Curnen (Contagion), and Kathy Baker (Take Shelter, "Medium").
The narrative explores the practice of "live-in staging," in which recently evicted families are recruited to live in unsold properties. Curnen plays a single mother who begins to entertain dangerous fantasies while "staging" a model home in an otherwise empty development, while Baker portrays a realtor who grows increasingly suspicious and alarmed.

William Hurt has dropped out of the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider, two months after production was suspended following the death of 27-year-old camera assistant Sarah Jones. Since William Hurt was playing Gregg Allman in this adaptation of the singer's biography, it remains unclear whether or not the production will start back up again, as investigations continue into the tragic on-set accident.
Production was taking place in Atlanta, Georgia when, on February 20, a train collided with film equipment in rural Doctortown, Ga, where the crew was setting up for shooting on a train trestle that overlooks the Altamaha River, resulting in Sarah Jones' death and seven other crew members getting injured. According to Deadline, the movie's producers were apparently still trying to rally the crew to continue production in the days following, but shooting was eventually suspended.

In “Boulevard,” a middle-aged married man picks up a gay hustler on the Nashville street where hookers hang out, pays the kid for company instead of sex, and ever-so-gradually begins to confront the secret identity he’s suppressed for so long. Knowing that man is played by Robin Williams (in morose rather than manic mode) tells you everything you need to know about the film, which is well written, acted and directed, and yet somehow never manages to surprise. That approach has its advantages, however, making the unfulfilled character’s sexuality almost secondary to the ways in which straight audiences can relate.
As best friend Winston (Bob Odenkirk) puts it in the film, “Maybe it’s never too late to start living the life you really want” — an optimistic philosophy that may as well be the mantra for a project director Dito Montiel (“A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints”) felt »
