‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Sequel Is In The Works, Robin Williams & Chris Columbus Will Return

Wait, didn’t Mrs. Doubtfire die in a fire? True story: I’ve never seen “Mrs. Doubtfire,” the 1993 comedy about a divorced actor so psychotic and unhinged he disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife. And I’d rather take a chainsaw to my scrotum than ever see it, frankly (the painful bits I’ve seen on TV over the years were enough, thank you very much).

Mrs. Doubtfire

Wait, didn’t Mrs. Doubtfire die in a fire? True story: I’ve never seen “Mrs. Doubtfire,” the 1993 comedy about a divorced actor so psychotic and unhinged he disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife. And I’d rather take a chainsaw to my scrotum than ever see it, frankly (the painful bits I’ve seen on TV over the years were enough, thank you very much).

Well, anyhow, twenty years after the fact, Fox 2000 is developing a sequel because evidently actor Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus (both of whom are back for the sequel) need to remortgage their summer homes (or something). David Berenbaum, who penned “Elf,” “Haunted Mansion”and “The Spiderwick Chronicles,” will write the screenplay.

So, why a sequel other than the fact that everyone likes money? Well, Williams' career has been rather cool the last few years and 'Doubtfire' grossed $441 million worldwide off a $25 million dollar budget in 1993, which was a super win for everyone involved. Williams even won a Golden Globe for his performance in the comedy/musical section.

Actress/writer Bonnie Hunt had been tapped to write a sequel as far back as 2001, but obviously it never went forward and they’re going with a new scribe this one. You will not see me in line for this one should it ever come together. [THR]
