DUMBO — A new comedy starring Robin Williams, Mila Kunis and Peter Dinklage is filming in Brooklyn.

"The Angriest Man in Brooklyn," directed by Phil Alden Robinson, is filming in Brooklyn neighborhoods, shooting scenes in the Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO on Tuesday.

While cameras rolled, Williams was seen walking into the East River in full garb and submerging himself completely in the water a few feet from the rocky shore. Kunis followed after him wearing hopistal scrubs, running shoes, and sunglasses. She then helped Williams out of the river and onto the small beach in the park.

The movie is set to shoot a second day in DUMBO on Wednesday, Sept. 26 from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
