"Mrs. Doubtfire" is getting a sequel. The Hollywood Reporter announced that a
follow-up to the 1993 comedy is in the works, and that Robin Williams is on board
to reprise his role as the divorced dad-turned-cross-dressing housekeeper.
Chris Columbus will be back in the director's chair with David Berenbaum attached
to write the screenplay. A sequel shuffled around Hollywood in the early 2000s, but
the project had been dormant until Berenbaum came around.
For those who don't remember, "Mrs. Doubtfire" features Williams as a recently divorced
actor who tries to get closer to his children by becoming their nanny, 'Mrs. Euphegenia
Doubtfire'. The film earned $222 million at the global box office, and a Golden Globe for
best comedy/musical. Williams, who also picked up a Golden Globe for his role, starred
alongside Sally Field, Mara Wilson, Lisa Jakub, Pierce Brosnan and Matthew Lawrence.
After news of the sequel broke, Mara Wilson, who played Williams' youngest daughter,
'Natalie', tweeted that she wouldn't be a part of "Mrs. Doubtfire 2."
