Lionsgate has nabbed North American rights to “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn” from Landscape Entertainment, the studio said Tuesday.
Directed by Phil Alden Robinson (“Field of Dreams”), the film stars Robin Williams as a man who is told by his doctor (Mila Kunis) that he only has 90 minutes left to live. After receiving that death sentence, Williams tries to make amends for his life by racing through a rapidly gentrifying section of greater Manhattan that also happens to offer lucrative film tax incentives.
Landscape Entertainment’s Bob Cooper & Tyler Mitchell produced the film with Daniel J. Walker of Force Majeure. WME brokered the domestic deal.
