Before his death, Robin Williams had 4 upcoming movies
MANILA, Philippines – Before his untimely death, Robin Williams completed several films.
According to a report from Entertainment Weekly, the actor is set to appear as Teddy Roosevelt in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb before Christmas. Another film, Merry Friggin’ Christmas was also scheduled to be shown starting November 7.
Williams also starred in the drama Boulevard alongside Bob Odenkirk , which was shown at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. He also lent his voice to Dennis the Dog in Absolutely Anything, a live-action British comedy together with Simon Pegg and Kate Beckinsale, which was scheduled for next year.
Aside from the 4 movies, director Christopher Columbus was in talks with Fox to develop a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire. It was reported that if the script had been finished, Williams and Columbus would likely come in to do the movie.
In the same article by EW, Columbus released a statement expressing his sadness about his friend's sudden death.
“We have lost one of our most inspired and gifted comic minds, as well as one of this generation’s greatest actors. To watch Robin work, was a magical and special privilege. His performances were unlike anything any of us had ever seen, they came from some spiritual and otherworldly place. He truly was one of the few people who deserved the title of ‘genius.’ We were friends for 21 years. Our children grew up together, he inspired us to spend our lives in San Francisco and I loved him like a brother. The world was a better place with Robin in it. And his beautiful legacy will live on forever.”
The actor was found dead on Monday, August 11 (Tuesday, August 12 in Manila) from an apparent suicide.
Family, friends and colleagues led by US President Barack Obama paid tribute to the late actor. – Rappler.com
