First up, The Angriest Man In Brooklyn is a comedy about an "obnoxious patient" (Williams) who is mistakenly informed by a medic (Mila Kunis) that he has only 90 minutes to live. What follows are the woman's desperate attempts to track him down as he embarks on a mission though New York City to right all the wrongs of his life in the prescribed time frame. Directed by Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams), the film also stars Peter Dinklage, Melissa Leo and James Earl Jones, and is set to begin production in September.
His second film, The Butler, is a biopic about the life of long-time White House servant Eugene Allen, and set to star Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Vanessa Redgrave, Terrence Howard, John Cusack, Alan Rickman and Jane Fonda. Williams will be playing the role of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and will be first on his schedule as it is scheduled to start filming later this month.
