Robin Williams has four more movies to release

12 August 2014, 15:54

Los Angeles  - Robin Williams still has four movies left to release.

The Patch Adams star was found dead in an apparent suicide at his home in California but fans will still be able to enjoy some new work for some time.

Over the Christmas period, he can be seen again as Teddy Roosevelt in Night of the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, which finished production in May and will be released on 19 December.

A month earlier, there is another festive film being released.

He shot comedy Merry Friggin' Christmas with Wendi McLendon-Covey, Lauren Graham and Oliver Platt and the Joe and Anthony Russo-directed picture will be in cinemas on 7 November.

Additionally, the Aladdin star lent his voice to animated pooch Dennis the Dog in live-action comedy Absolutely Anything, which also features Simon Pegg and Kate Beckinsale and will be released some time next year.

A fourth film, Boulevard, debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year but has yet to find theatrical distribution.

And Robin had been meeting with screenwriter David Berenbaum about a sequel to his hit 1993 comedy Mrs. Doubtfire - in which he played a man who masqueraded as an older female nanny in a bid to get close to his kids - with a second draft underway.

The project's director Christopher Columbus hailed Robin as a "genius" who he loved working with.

He said in a statement: "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."
