Boulevard, the final film in which Robin Williams stars as a gay man may not find its way to a theater near you, reports the Mirror.
The film, which received positive reviews at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York and Outfest in Los Angeles shortly before Williams took his own life in August, tells the story of a married man (Robin Williams) who falls in love with a male prostitute and struggles with coming out late in life.
Despite garnering positive reviews, Boulevard has struggled finding a distributor to bring it to theaters, and the cast and crew are now concerned it may never happen.
“It’s really sad but it is looking impossible that Boulevard will ever see the light of day now,” a source told the Mirror. “It has proved to be a struggle for it to find the support it needs to be released. The cast have tried, as have the crew. But for many reasons it is looking very unlikely.”
Shortly before his death, Williams spoke highly of the project, describing it as “a beautiful, sad movie.”
“[It’s] a guy who falls in love with a gay prostitute, basically comes out,” he told the Mirror. “He’s married, and he has to come out to his wife. It was powerful to do.”
Though Boulevard is the final film in which Robin Williams plays a gay character, there are 3 additional films starring the legendary actor that have not yet been released: Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, A Merry Friggin’ Christmas, and comedy Absolutely Anything.
