Watch Robin Williams’ Final Role In ‘Absolutely Anything’ Clip

When watching this clip I keep thinking how sad is that we shall never
hear his voice again.

Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: In his final film performance, the late Robin Williams lends his voice to sci-fi comedy Absolutely Anything for Monty Python’s Terry Jones. The legendary entertainer was the first to sign onto the long-gestating comedy about a disillusioned teacher (Simon Pegg) granted the power to do “absolutely anything” by scheming aliens, played by the Pythons. In Deadline’s exclusive clip, Pegg gives his devoted dog Dennis the ability to speak – and out comes Williams’ unmistakable voice.

Absolutely Anything Robin Williams“One thing we’re grateful to Robin for is he was the first to come on and he stuck with the whole thing,” recalled Jones’ co-writer Gavin Scott (The Mists of Avalon, Small Soldiers), who with Jones spoke with me during a recent ADR session in Los Angeles.

Jones and Scott first began writing the film 20 years ago, but it didn’t come together until Jones’ son Bill and producing partner Ben Timlett…

Sony Says Theaters Can Cancel ‘The Interview’ Over Hacker Threat Concerns

Deadline

Sony isn’t yet cancelling the Christmas release of The Interview, but the embattled studio has given its blessing to concerned theater owners who choose to drop the controversial comedy.

“We’re leaving it up to the discretion of the theater owners and chains and we will support their decision,” a well-placed source at Sony confirmed to Deadline.

Hackers threatened moviegoers who see the Seth Rogen and James Franco film in a message Tuesday morning, prompting Sony and exhibitors to scramble into emergency discussions on how to handle the new risk to the public. The threat, issued along with a new data dump containing emails stolen from Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton, specifically referenced The Interview for the first time since Sony’s crisis began on November 24.

Rat Queens Gets A New Artist

rqIf you haven’t heard by now then where hell have you been? Okay you may not be a comic person or not up on all the news happening in the world of comics (truth be told, who the hell can. Me included). Image and Shadowline are in my opinion lucky as hell to be getting Stjepan Sejic to start drawing Rat Queens. But it only looks like it will be for only issues 9-11. Now that is some sad news. Love to see his work on this book for at least 12 issues. You can see his work most recently on “Death Vigil” for Image and Top Cow.

Shadowline’s New York Times bestselling high fantasy series RAT QUEENS written by Kurtis J. Wiebe will welcome a new artist: Stjepan Sejic of the #1 Amazon bestseller SUNSTONE for issues 9-11.

The RAT QUEENS SPECIAL: BRAGA #1 will feature guest artist Tess Fowler and release on January 14. Sejic’s art will premiere in the following issue, RAT QUEENS #9, on February 25. The series will be monthly with #12 soliciting for a May release.

“Having admired Stjepan’s work at Top Cow for some time now I’m extremely excited about his coming on board to Rat Queens,” said Jim Valentino, Vice President of Image Comics. “He will usher in an exciting new era for one of our most popular titles.”

Wiebe added: “I’m excited to have Stjepan bring the Rat Queens to life in his distinctive style, a voice that understands both the heart and the humor of Hannah, Dee, Betty and Violet. The future of the series is brighter than ever and we’re looking forward to getting new issues out to fans.
