"Mrs. Doubtfire" has risen from the ashes of the 1990s. A belated followup to the two decade-old gender-bending comedy is in development with Robin Williams and original director Chris Columbus, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A sequel was previously in development back in 2001, though the project fizzled before it could make it to the screen. "Mrs. Doubtfire" stars Williams as struggling voice actor and recent divorcee Daniel Hillard, who poses as a Scottish nanny in order to be closer to his young children. The film was a monster box-office success on release with a gross of more than $440 million worldwide, and additionally won two Golden Globes (Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy and Best Actor - Musical or Comedy) and an Oscar for Best Makeup. Williams currently stars on the CBS sitcom "The Crazy Ones" and has the feature "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn" slated for release on May »

What would you do if you had 90 minutes to live? That is the question posed to Robin Williams’ character in the upcoming movie “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn.” Williams plays that angriest man and upon learning that he has such a short time left, he does what most of us would do – he attempts to square himself with those he loves. The catch is that while he is sick, he isn’t going to die in 90 minutes. Yeah, that’s just what his doctor (played by Mila Kunis) tells him when he presses her for a definitive length of time. Watching the trailer for the film, the results, as awful as the falsehood may be, appear like they could be relatively funny. Particularly enjoyable is Williams’ voiceover at the opening. The cast also includes Melissa Leo, Hamish Linklater, Richard Kind, and Peter Dinklage. It is worth noting that Linklater is »

Everyday, people are told they have a short amount of time to live. In fact, more than a few movies are about characters coming to terms with their impending death and trying to set things right. Stepmom would be a good example, but an overwhelming majority of the time, these people are told they have months or at least weeks to live. In the first trailer for The Angriest Man In Brooklyn, Robin Williams. Henry Altmann is told he has 90 minutes, though that seems to be either an outright lie or a gross exaggeration. As you can see in the above trailer, dropped by Yahoo, that realization sets the main character off on a frantic dash to make everything right with all of the people in his life who he.s pissed off over the years. That list includes but is not limited to his son, his estranged wife, his »
Despite a juicy role as Dwight D. Eisenhower in Lee Daniels’ The Butler last summer, Robin Williams has been largely absent from the spotlight for a few years. That’s all about to change though with his new film Boulevard hitting Tribeca this month and the first trailer for another Williams project, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, arriving on the web today.
Williams stars as Henry Altmann, the titular character, who is wrongfully told by a doctor (Mila Kunis) that he’s managed to frustrate through constant yelling and needling that he has a brain aneurysm that will kill him within an hour and a half. Shocked out of the bitterness that has consumed him for much of his adult life, Henry begins a race against time through New York City to make amends with all the loved ones he has driven away, including his brother, wife and estranged son. »

Kunis will next be seen in Jupiter Ascending.
The Angriest Man in Brooklyn will open in Us cinemas from May 23. A UK release date is yet to be announced. »
Robin Williams seems terribly high-strung for a man whose job requires him to drive in Brooklyn while wearing a suit. Luckily for Williams, everyone he knows and has alienated also lives in Brooklyn, so the ninety minutes he thinks he has to live following a brain aneurysm is almost enough time to make amends with them all. The Angriest Man In Brooklyn trailer also features Mila Kunis as the passive-aggressive physician who must eventually disclose how and why she fabricated Williams' extremely poor prognosis. Wonder how he'll react to that reveal! Just kidding: He will react with an ungovernable rage. »
