Based on titles alone, Robot & Frank was the most intriguing film out of Sundance. I was thrilled to hear the movie is great, and star Frank Langella unsurprisingly kills it. Coming out of the festival buzz, Deadline reports Langella has signed on to his next project, The Time Being. Wes Bentley co-stars as Daniel, a struggling artist who accepts a series of bizarre commissions from a dying, eccentric millionaire (Langella): “Daniel can’t quite ascertain whether his new ‘mentor’ is a monster who is intent on destroying Daniel’s life and marriage, or a savior who will teach him the true meaning of art.” The Time Being will be the directorial debut of Nenad Cicin-Sain. Cicin-Sain co-wrote the script with Richard Gladstein (Paper Man), who is also producing.
