James Earl Jones and Da’Vine Joy Randolph are joining Robin William and Mila Kunis, in the dark comedy, Angriest Man In Brooklyn, for director Phil Alden Robinson, from a script penned by Assi Dayan and Daniel Taplitz.
The upcoming film, shooting this month, finds Kunis playing a stand-in doctor who mistakenly tells an obnoxious patient (Williams) that he has only 90 minutes to live. She desperately tries to locate the man after her prognosis sends him on a contrite tour of the city to right all the wrongs in his life.
No word on exactly what characters Jones and Randolph will play, or how their characters figure into the story.
Most recently, Jones starred on stage, in Driving Miss Daisy, in London’s West End, and also received his honorary Oscar in front of the audience at the Wyndham’s Theatre.
Randolph most recently received a Tony nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her role as Oda Mae Brown in Ghost the Musical – her Broadway debut.
Angriest Man In Brooklyn, will be her big screen debut.
