The world lost a legend on the 11th of August 2014, when Robin Williams passed away as his home in California.
The 63 year old actor and stand up star leaves behind an immense legacy of work with some fine movies in several different genres, a massively successful TV series and some of the most high energy stand up material you'll ever be lucky enough to witness.
And his work isn't quite done yet, because of a number factors there are still at least 4 movies featuring Williams' that have yet to see the light of day. The first up (appropriate for the season) is A Merry Figgin' Christmas which sees Williams team up with his son (Joel McHale) to help perform a Christmas miracle.
It's set to go a little like this...
So hardly a classic for the ages but it will no doubt get some added poignancy by being released in the wake of Williams' death. Now Brit directorTristram Shapeero has spoken out about the film, saying that he took some time to tweak the ending to be a more fitting finale to the career of the great comic.
Speaking to the New York Daily News, he said he spoke to the production company about the 'need to recut it, to restoreit. We need to do some work to make it a fitting tribute to Robin.' Co-star Joel McHale also says that making the film with Williams was an emotional time, with the 42 year old required to break down on camera for the first time in his career.
Sounds like... cheery stuff...
A Merry Friggin' Christmas is in cinemas in the US in November, Williams will also be seen in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, in cinemas December 19th.
