Zelda Williams (Robin’s Daughter) Will Suffer Powder Burns
Robin Williams has played some pretty memorable screen psychos in the past (One Hour Photo and Insomnia), and now we’ll find out how his daughter, Zelda, stacks up against her old man when she takes a dip in the genre’s deep end.
Los Angeles-based film company Mind Blur Productions is proud to announce that Zelda Williams, the 20-year-old daughter of actor Robin Williams, has been cast in the lead role of their terrifying fact-based thriller Powder Burns, which is gearing up for an April, 2010 production start date in LA.
In Powder Burns Ms. Williams will play Emily Tomassini, an intelligent and devoutly religious but headstrong young woman who has been battling her mother and father over her relationship with an older, married health care professional named Philip Newman. After Emily’s spiteful dad, Paul Tomassini, has a violent confrontation with his daughter’s lover, the battles escalate into an all-out war that culminates in Emily and Philip going on a blood-soaked rampage in Emily’s childhood home that leaves four people senselessly slaughtered, including Emily’s parents and younger brother.
The riveting Powder Burns will take an in-depth examination of the twisted relationships and unbelievable events that lead to these sensational murders.
I’m digging the sound of this one. Powder Burns will be helmed by Henry 2 director Chuck Parello, which means that it won’t be afraid to shed a light on some pretty nasty subject matter. Color me excited!
