Four unreleased Robin Williams films to watch out for



By MORGAN WHITAKER

Robin Williams' unexpected death shocked and saddened millions of fans worldwide, but those still craving a little more of the acting and comedy icon's work are in luck. Williams had lent his talents to four yet-to-be released films.

The first movie for fans to look out for is "Merry Friggin' Christmas," a comedy in which Williams plays Joel McHale's eccentric father alongside fellow actors Candice Bergen, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Lauren Graham, and Oliver Platt.

McHale spoke glowingly of his now-deceased co-star a month before he passed away. "When you talk to Robin you think, 'I have learned more in the last 20 minutes than I ever learned,'" he told the New York Daily News. "He is such an open soul and one of the most sensitive and great guys, and I would kill for the man. And I have already offered to kill people for him."

The holiday comedy is due out in theaters and on demand Nov. 7, according to ET.

Younger audiences will delight at the chance to see Williams reprise his role as Teddy Roosevelt in the latest installment of the "Night at the Museum." Williams will play the gun-toting president alongside Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Rebel Wilson, and Dick Van Dyke.

Williams' will not be the only posthumous performance either, as the film also includes an appearance from Mickey Rooney who passed away this past April. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" is scheduled to hit theaters Dec. 19.



Fans of his more serious work like "One Hour Photo" and "Good Will Hunting" should be on the look out for "Boulevard." Williams stars as a man struggling with homosexuality in a role that Variety described as "one of the kindest characters Williams has ever played." The movie already premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, but may get a bigger release in the wake of the actor's death.

Anyone pining for the star's voice acting talents will want to check out "Absolutely Anything," a comedy from Terry Jones of the Monty Python gang. The film starring Simon Pegg and Kate Beckinsale tells the story of a teacher who finds himself in some sticky situations after he gains supernatural powers. Williams lent his voice to the character of "Dennis the Dog." It's scheduled to be released sometime in 2015, according to IMDB.

Plans for a fifth possible project, "Mrs. Doubtfire 2," will likely be dropped by the studio instead of a replacement actor being sought to depict the eponymous character, according to Variety.

Gosh, where are all the trolls who said he killed himself because he was 'dispondent' over his career. Seems to me his career was just as big as he wanted t to be.

Yes. But she has been out of the public eye for a long time. The social media crowd largely didn't know her. So her death is not nearly as important as that of Robin Williams. The more celebrity, the greater the importance of their death.

That is because the "social media crowd" is 20-something years old and doesn't have a clue who she was.

No, she isn't. The word celebrity lost all meaning when TV programming was inundated with "reality" shows, Paris Hilton and the Kardashian family, not to mention the self-aggrandizing of the Internet, including, but certainly not limited to Facebook and YouTube.

You have to look at the events of the deaths: Ms. Bacall died of natural causes. Williams' death came as a complete shock because those of us who have been fans since he started in the 70s and feel as though we have been through his bouts of Depression and drug and alcohol addiction with him were pretty well sure he had overcome those old demons.

Both of these actors had careers that are worthy of remembering.

Fisher King was such a great movie and the best dramatic role I saw with him. He was a revelation since it so much more than comedy!

Well at least it was his choice instead of someone killing him or dying from a horrible disease.

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. Starring both Robin Williams and Mickey Rooney. Now that's what I call IRONIC. :(
