‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Sequel in the Works


It’s been two decades since the 1993 hit Mrs. Doubtfire first hit screens, and now, seemingly out of nowhere, it’s going to get a sequel.

Director Chris Columbus and Robin Williams will return and Elf writer David Berenbaum will be penning the script. The original film saw Williams, a struggling actor and newly divorced father, take on the persona of a Scottish nanny named Euphegenia Doubtfire in order to be closer to his children. It’s pretty hard to forget the burning fat suit and tire-squashed face mask that helped the film pull in $219 million domestically, $222 million internationally, a Golden Globe for best comedy/musical, and another Globe for Williams for best actor in a musical/comedy.

Apparently a sequel has been in the works since 2001, but after numerous drafts and authors, it started to wither. Early this year, however, Berenbaum’s involvement sparked a new interest that has Williams and Columbus hopeful about the outcome this time around.
