Robin Williams is set to star in "Boulevard," directed by Dito Montiel ("A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints"). The film centers on Nolan Mack (Williams), a faithful husband in a marriage of convenience who is forced to face his inner secrets when he has a run-in with a younger man (Roberto Aguire).

Douglas Soesbe penned the script, with Camellia Entertainment producing. Montiel previously won the Sundance Directing Award in 2006 for "Saints."

The film is currently in pre-production and slated for a May 2013 start in Nashville, Tennessee.

Williams recently finished filming Lee Daniels' "The Butler" and Phil Alden Robinson's "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn."
