Robin Williams died on August 11, 2014, just three weeks after completing his work in the comedy "Absolutely Anything." According to Deadline, that film is finally getting a limited release in the U.S., as early as this month.
"Absolutely Anything" stars Simon Pegg -- with Robin Williams as the voice of his faithful dog -- and co-starring Kate Beckinsale and the Monty Python gang -- John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, and Michael Palin. Monty Python's Terry Jones directed the film, from a script he co-wrote 20 years ago.
The comedy came out in 2015 in the United Kingdom, via Lionsgate UK, and Deadline said Atlas Distribution Co. will be distributing the film in the U.S., aiming for a May 12 release.
Here's the movie synopsis, and the trailer:
"A disillusioned school teacher suddenly finds he has the ability to do anything he wishes - a challenge bestowed upon him by power-crazed aliens, watching him from space."
Sadly, the film has not been embraced by the critics (or the fans) so it doesn't seem like a fitting farewell for Williams. That's unfortunate, but it certainly doesn't take anything away from Robin Williams as an actor and icon.
