Robin Williams: A Complete Guide To His Final Works
Merry Friggin' Christmas Ė No Release Date YetDespite having a really fantastic cast that includes not only Robin Williams but also Joel McHale, Lauren Graham, Oliver Platt, Clark Duke, Wendi McLendon-Covey and more, the upcoming holiday comedy Merry Friggin' Christmas (previously known as A Friggin' Christmas Miracle) does not yet have a distributor or a release date. The project first announced its cast back in February 2013 with Community director Tristram Shapeero at the helm, and while the movie has completed filming, itís not entirely clear on when he will actually get to see the finished product.
Based on a script by Ceder Rapids screenwriter Phil Johnston, the movie stars Joel McHale as Boyd Mitchler, a dad who reluctantly agrees to spend Christmas with his estranged family. When he realizes that he forgot his sonís gifts at home, however, he is forced to go on a eight-hour road trip with his father (Williams) so that they can get the presents and make it back before sunrise on Christmas Day. Iím absolutely dying to see what kind of chemistry McHale and Williams can create on-screen as son and father, so hopefully this film will see the light of day sooner rather than later.
