Movies where two or more actors died the same year a movie they were in came out.

Odd title I know, but thought of this when watching The Circle today where Bill Paxton and Glenne Headly played a married couple and, sadly, both pass away in February and June respectively, the same year The Circle came out.

So, I'm curious, are there any other examples of this?

Bernie Mac and Issac Hayes both died before the release of Soul Men.

Even freakier, Mac died on August 9th, Hayes died August 10th

Would Vic Morrow, Myca Dinh Le and Renee Shin-Yi Chen count?

Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe both died around the time The Misfits came out. It was the last film for both of them and in my humble opinion the best film for both of them.

Clark Gable died in November 1960. The movie came out Feb. 1, 1961. Marilyn Monroe died Aug. 5, 1962.

What about that cursed Shatner movie where everybody but HIM died?

Bill Paxton and Powers Booth both starred in Paxton's (quite excellent) movie, "Frailty".

Interesting trivia, but Frailty came out several years ago. This is about two (or more) actors who died the same year a movie they were in came out.

It's not a movie, but the new Twin Peaks.

Miguel Ferrer died in January, Warren Frost died in February.

And Catherine Coulson, but she died in 2015.

And if you include the old Twin Peaks, Michael Parks died in May of this year.
