But it won't be edited...
TMZ reports that producers of one of Robin Williams' final movies had a conference call yesterday to talk about cutting scenes from the film, in which he plays a recovering alcoholic.
While the film is a family comedy, one scene features Williams and his son (Joel McHale) reveal that his character has been sober for six years. Williams himself went to rehab six years ago and stayed sober until his death.
Producers decided not to change anything about the film. They will, however, add a photo of Williams at the end to pay tribute. Sources claim that during the four weeks Williams was on set, he was sober and was said to be "upbeat" the entire time.
