Arguably the best news of the day: everyone’s favorite cross-dressing nanny will be coming back to the big screen!
Fox 2000 is developing a sequel to the 1993 hit movie Mrs. Doubtfire, to be directed by Chris Columbus and written by David Berenbaum, who wrote Elf, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
If you have somehow (tragically) missed this gem over the years, Mrs. Doubtfire starred Robin Williams as a divorced father who poses as a Scottish nanny, Euphegenia Doubtfire, to stay close with his children. When it was released in 1993 the movie was a huge hit, reportedly taking in $219 million domestically and $222 million internationally.
Here’s what we know so far about the sequel:
- Robin Williams will definitely been involved.
- A sequel has been in the works since 2001, but has been put on hold until now.
- Mara Wilson, who played Williams’ youngest daughter, tweeted that will not be taking part in the sequel.
- As of now, there are no details to the plot of the movie, release date, or what other actors will be involved,
Do you agree with Mara—do we really need a Mrs. Doubtfire 2? Or are you excited to hear about the sequel?
