Robin Williams is set to reprise his role as the granny who can hip-hop, be-bop, dance 'til ya drop, and yo yo, make a wicked cup of cocoa. Yes, a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel is in the works, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fox has been pushing for a sequel since the original film came out in 1993, and even had a script in 2001, but Williams and director Chris Columbus weren't impressed with any of the studio's takes on Doubtfire 2.
But now the director and star are both attached, and, David Berenbaum, who wrote Elf, is writing the script.
The original Doubtfire was a huge box office success, taking in $219 million domestically and $222 million internationally. It also won a Golden Globe for Best Musical/Comedy, and Williams won Best Actor in the category.
There is one star from the original film who's not thrilled about the news, though. Mara Wilson, who played Mrs. Doubtfire/Daniel Hillard's younger daughter, wrote on Twitter that she won't be involved because sequels generally suck.
Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end.
