Three years after the unexpected death of Robin Williams, his final film is finally being released in the U.S. According to Deadline, Absolutely Anything will receive a theatrical release by Atlas Distribution Co.
The film stars Simon Pegg as a disillusioned school teacher who discovers he has been given to ability to do “absolutely anything” thanks to a group of space aliens. In turn, the teacher gives his dog the ability to speak and Williams voices the faithful canine in the film. A trailer for Absolutely Anything, which is due in theaters on May 17 this year, has also been released:
Of course, in addition to featuring the late Robin Williams, Absolutely Anything also comes from the creative mind of Terry Jones, one fifth of the comedy geniuses behind Monty Python. It was recently announced that Jones would no longer be giving interviews to the press as a result of his battle with dementia, making the film that much more bittersweet. But, on a happier note, Absolutely Anything also stars Jones’ Python co-stars Eric Idle, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin making it the first live-action Python film since The Meaning of Life.
While Williams’ is sorely missed it will be nice to hear his familiar voice one last time.
