Tim Robbins, who's up for a best director Oscar for "Dead Man Walking," will tackle some lighter fare. Robbins will star with Martin Lawrence in Touchstone Pictures' comedy, "Nothing to Lose," to be directed by Steve Oedekerk ("Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls"). Robbins will play an ad executive who kidnaps a carjacker (Lawrence) trying to rob him. Production is set to begin next month.
