Robbins leaps in ‘River’

Thesp joins cast in Eastwood-helmed adaptation

Tim Robbins will star in “Mystic River,” joining Sean Penn and Kevin Bacon in a drama about three childhood friends whose lives again become intertwined because of a murder in their neighborhood. Clint Eastwood is directing the Brian Helgeland-scripted adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novel for Warner Bros.

For the ICM-repped Robbins, the film marks a reteam with Penn, whom Robbins directed in “Dead Man Walking.” He will join the cast after completing “The Guys,” the Actors’ Gang production of Anne Nelson’s play about firefighters felled during Sept. 11. He stars in the play with Helen Hunt, and Robbins will next be seen onscreen alongside Mark Wahlberg and Thandie Newton in the Jonathan Demme-directed “The Truth About Charlie,” which Universal will release this fall.
