Robin Williams had four projects in various stages of production that were scheduled for release this year or in 2015 when he died of an apparent suicide Monday in his Tiburon home.

According to E! News, Williams will appear in the indie comedy "Merry Friggin' Christmas," co-starring Candice Bergen, Clark Duke, Pierce Gagnon, Lauren Graham, Tim Heidecker, Joel McHale, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Oliver Platt and Jeffrey Tambor. Phase 4 Films reportedly will release the movie Nov. 7 in theaters and video on demand.

Williams played Teddy Roosevelt in the sequel "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," which finished production in May and comes out Dec. 19, according to 20th Century Fox. Williams co-stars with Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Rebel Wilson, Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervais, Skyler Gisondo, Ben Kingsley and Dan Stevens.

He also starred opposite Bob Odenkirk in director Dito Montiel's movie "Boulevard," which debuted earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival; it doesn't have a distribution date yet.

Scheduled for release in 2015, "Absolutely Anything" has Williams voicing the animated Dennis the Dog and co-starring with Kate Beckinsale and Simon Pegg.

Williams also was supposed to begin work later this year on a sequel to his 1993 hit "Mrs. Doubtfire."
