Robin Williams has signed on to star in the satirical indie comedy The World's Greatest Dad with actress Alexie Gilmore, who will play his love interest. Daryl Sabara will play Williams' son.
In the film, Williams will portray Lance, a high school teacher and writer who covers up his son's death from a freak masturbation accident by forging a suicide note to protect his family from any shame, gossip, and raised eyebrows regarding the unusual circumstances. The note is published and Lance eventually pens a journal that he claims was written by his late son.
Bobcat Goldthwait wrote the script and will direct the film, which is currently shooting in Seattle.
