You have 90 minutes left to live, what do you do?  That’s the premise of The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, a new screenplay from Daniel Tapitz (Red Dog) to be directed by Phil Alden Robinson (The Sum of All Fears).  The picture centers on the fallout after a stand-in doctor mistakenly tells an obnoxious patient that he has an hour-and-a-half left to live.  While the patient goes on a tirade in New York City, attempting to right all the wrongs in his life, the doctor tries in vain to track him down.  The high concept comedy stars Robin Williams, Mila Kunis and Peter Dinklage, and has also snared Melissa Leo and James Earl JonesThe Angriest Man in Brooklyn is set to start filming this September in Brooklyn.  Hit the jump for more.

ScreenDaily reports mila-kunis-angriest-man-in-brooklynthat Williams, Kunis and Dinklage are all attached to star in The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, a picture that Mark Lindsay of Cargo Entertainment is currently shopping to Cannes buyers. Though no specific roles have yet to be assigned, I’m going to go ahead and peg Kunis as the stand-in doctor and Williams as the title role, which I think suits him best. Bob Cooper of production company, Landscape Entertainment, had this to say:

“This comedy has a unique big idea, it is universal [and] the talent of Robin, Mila, Peter, Melissa, James Earl and Phil Alden directing is a great recipe for a very special film.”

The director also chimed in, saying:

“When I read Dan Taplitz’s amazing screenplay I laughed and cried until I realized that I wanted so much to see this film that I was actually eager to spend a few years of my life getting it made.”

Finally, a comment from the frenetic Mr. Williams himself:

“I read the script and said, ‘wow!’  I love the fact that it’s so fun and honest. The idea of being that nasty and funny is a gift.”
