Boy Meets Grail

Outtakes

February 11, 1990|Pat H. Broeske \f7

Robin Williams and director Terry Gilliam are reteaming--this time, for a drama.

Williams--who went uncredited for his depiction of the Moon King in Gilliam's fantasy, "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen"--will star in "The Fisher King." He'll play a radio-show personality whose career and life take nose-dives. Down and out on the streets of New York, he encounters some street people who lead him on a personal quest. The title refers to a character who figures in the legend of the Holy Grail.

Scripted by Richard Lagravanese, "The Fisher King" will be produced by Debra Hill and Lynda Obst for Tri-Star.

Filming's set to begin in May on a $20-25 million budget, according to a project insider--relatively modest, compared to Gilliam's notable budget-buster, "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen."
