Report: Robin Williams Will Return For Mrs. Doubtfire 2


The comedy legend is reportedly ready to return to one of his most famous roles

According to The Hollywood Reporter, legendary comedian Robin Williams will revive one of his most iconic movie characters in a sequel to the 1993 comedy Mrs. Doubtfire. Original helmer Chris Columbus is also being sought to direct from a new screenplay by Elf writer David Berenbaum.

The original film was one of the biggest comedy hits of the early 90s. Williams played a divorced father banned from seeing his three children by his ex-wife (Sally Field) for his irresponsible and immature antics (summary of charges: Acting like Robin Williams.) In order to see them, he dons a costume and prosthetic makeup to pose as the children’s new nanny, an elderly Scottish woman named Euphegenia Doubtfire. Child star Mara Wilson, comedian Harvey Fierstein and then-future James Bond Pierce Brosnan also starred.

At this time, there is no word on what the story of the sequel would be.
