Robin Williams Will Bust Out the Feathers For 'Birdcage' Sequel
Robin Williams has spent the better part of the past decade confusing the hell out of audiences with his movie choices – "RV," anyone? – but it seems as though things may be on the upswing for the funnyman.
The actor may be injecting some fabulous back into his career in the not-too-distant future with a sequel to his 1996 hit "The Birdcage."
Williams tells Movie Hole that he may reprise his role as South Beach drag club owner Armand Goldman if the powers that be can work out a script. "They're trying to figure out which [story] to write for that," says Williams. "We will see what happens."
While the prospect of seeing Williams back in his gold chain and salmon pants has our hearts skipping a beat, we can't imagine the movie working without the original star-studded cast. If the producers can get Gene Hackman, Dianne Wiest, Dan Futterman, Calista Flockheart together and can get Hank Azaria back into his Daisy Dukes and Straight Cooking tank top, they're halfway there.
However, the real clincher will be seeing if Nathan Lane will reprise his role as Albert, AKA Starina. If Lane won't sign on, Williams might as well start pushing for that "Flubber" remake.
