Robin Williams Crowned Prince

Robin Williams is in talks to join the cast of the political biopic “The Prince of Providence” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Dermot Mulroney, Adam Goldberg, Bradley Cooper, Ed Burns are all part of the project which David Mamet adapted from Michael Stanton’s 2003 tome about Mayor Vincent “Buddy” Cianci, a man who dominated Providence’s political machine for 21 years.

The drama will chronicle the roller-coaster series of ups and downs for the charismatic and corrupt long-serving civil servant, and Oliver Platt will play him in the feature.

Michael Corrente (“American Buffalo”) will direct and principal photography is set to begin late this summer in Rhode Island.
