Even though he scripted "American Beauty" for Sam Mendes before his two successful television shows "Six Feet Under" and "True Blood," Alan Ball has only returned to the silver screen for little-seen directorial debut "Towelhead." Last year, though, brought news that Emmy and Oscar winning writer-director (hello EGOT?) was lining up a return with a dark comedy for Paramount.

Given the film was first announced over a year ago, it's not much of a surprise that there has been a casting change on "The Look Of Love." But perhaps more surprising is that most everyone else has stayed on board.

It's been nearly thirty years since the members of Monty Python appeared on screen together in "The Meaning of Life." Thanks to most of the group feeling it was the weakest of their film outings, long-standing fissures in the group, and resistance by John Cleese in particular to a possible sequel to "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," Monty Python have never since worked on the same project since. That said, members have teamed on various projects over the years -- all the surviving members (Graham Chapman having passed in 1989) except Terry Gilliam appeared in Terry Jones' "The Wind In The Willows" in 1996, while there have been a few on-stage reunions, generally with one or more members absent.

The acting talents of Robin Williams are certainly an acquired taste, especially if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy having their senses assaulted with performances that range from obnoxious humor in films like “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “RV” to overly sentimental Hollywood treacle like “Patch Adams."

Film roles for Robin Williams have been few and far between over the past decade with the '90's box-office monster mostly limiting himself to independent fare or supporting roles (and we'll politely forget "Old Dogs" ever existed). While it's not exactly a major leading role or anything, the comedian now looks set to edge closer to the spotlight starring alongside some big names for "The Bucket List" helmer Justin Zackham's upcoming wedding comedy "Gently Down The Stream."
