Robin Williams Daughter Sets Directing Debut

Robin Williams’ daughter, Zelda Williams, is set to make her directorial debut on the feature “AMA (Ask Me Anything)” for Assemble.

John Wikstrom penned the 2018 Blacklist script which follows an online interview session that goes awry when a mysterious hacker hijacks the forum and systematically dismantles the privacy of the participants by revealing lurid secrets hidden from their past.

Williams says in a statement: “I’m honored that the team at Assemble saw in me the potential to help bring John Wikstrom’s dark Hollywood cautionary tale to the screen. For me, this project encompasses so many of my cinematic loves and I can’t think of a more timely moment for it.”

Zelda helmed the short film “Shrimp” which dealt with professional dominatrixes in Los Angeles and starred the likes of Frances Fisher and Taika Waititi. Gunpowder and Sky are developing a half-hour TV series based on the short with Williams set to write, produce, direct and star.
