Robin Williams’ last film Absolutely Anything will finally hit theaters later this month (May17), two years after it was released around the globe.

The Mrs. Doubtfire icon voiced Dennis the Dog alongside Simon Pegg as his trusty owner in the comedy, which was directed by Terry Jones and also features his fellow Monty Python funnymen John Cleese, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin.

The movie was shot in 2014 after years in development, and Robin had completed his voiceover role just three weeks before taking his own life in August that year (14).

Producers managed to secure early distribution deals for Absolutely Anything in markets across the world, except for the U.S. and South Korea, and it hit the big screen in most territories in 2015, and in the U.K. last year (16).

However, fans in the U.S. will only now be able to check out Robin’s final feature film in theatres after filmmakers struck a limited deal with bosses at Atlas Distribution Co., who are aiming to have Absolutely Anything released on 12 May (17).

The project also marked the first time the Monty Python legends worked together on a new movie since 1983’s The Meaning of Life, something which is unlikely to happen again as Jones has since been diagnosed with dementia.
