ROBIN WILLIAMS’S LAST FILM MAY NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY

Boulevard, Robin Williams’s final film, may never be released, the London Daily Mirror reported today (Tuesday). According to the newspaper, the film, in which Williams plays a middle-aged married man who falls in love with a gay prostitute, has been unable to find a distributor, despite its receiving positive reviews (for a rough-cut) at the recent Tribeca Film Festival in New York shortly before Williams took his life in August. "It’s really sad but it is looking impossible that Boulevard will ever see the light of day now," a source told the Mirror. "It has proved to be a struggle for it to find the support it needs to be released. The cast have tried, as have the crew, but for many reasons it is looking very unlikely." The newspaper indicated that the film lacks the financial backing to complete a final cut and bring it to the attention of distributors. "There is one suggestion it isn’t up to scratch and is failing on merit," the source said.
