THE late Robin Williams had a unique way of signing up for his final film.
The comedian, who committed suicide in August, will voice Dennis the Dog in Absolutely Anything, which is due to be released later this year.
Ed Simons, chairman of trustees at Henley’s Kenton Theatre, is an executive producer of the film, which is directed by Monty Python star Terry Jones.
He tells me: “Robin bumped into Terry at an awards ceremony somewhere and he wrote on a piece of paper ‘I hearby confirm I will voice the part of Dennis the Dog’.”
The comedy stars Simon Pegg, Kate Beckinsale, Joanna Lumley, Eddie Izzard and Sanjeev Bhaskar and features the voices of Jones’ fellow Python stars.
Pegg plays a disillusioned school teacher who suddenly finds he has the ability to do anything he wants, a challenge bestowed upon him by a group of aliens.
