Robin Williams is said to team up with Barry Levinson for a new comedy "Man of the Year," financed by Morgan Creek
Robin Williams is a comedian and he's successfully chosen for "Man of the Year." Just like his previous films, this one also is still a comedy genre. The film, financed by Morgan Creek, will have Barry Levinson wrote the script, star in, and direct as well.
"Man of the Year" centers on a Jon Stewart-like host of a late night political talk show who runs for president to make noise on the campaign trail. The stunt backfires after a series of unusual circumstances leads him to victory.
Comic Williams will play the Jon Stewart-like host. The film will begin its production late in the fall. It will be shot in Toronto, with exteriors in Maryland and D.C., and is expected to be distributed domestically by Universal Pictures.
