Mrs Doubtfire sequel in the works

Everyone’s favorite nanny, Mrs Doubtfire is reportedly set for a sequel.

According to sources, a sequel to the 1993 comedy movie Mrs Doubtfire is said to be in development.

Robin Williams starred in the original film as Daniel Hillard, who disguised himself as the Scottish nanny to take care of his children.

Williams is reportedly ready to return to his role as Mrs Euphegenia Doubtfire, with Chris Columbus (Harry Potter) set to direct, The Wrap reports.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has been trying to get a sequel off the ground since 2001 when Bonnie Hunt was signed up to write a script. But despite a slew of rewrites, Robin, 62, and Chris, 55, weren’t happy with the storylines.

That changed when David Berenbaum, who wrote Christmas favourite Elf, was recruited to pen the sequel early this year.

Studio heads Elizabeth Gabler and Marisa Paiva of Fox 2000 will both oversee the sequel.

Mrs. Doubtfire earned an estimated $441 million at the box office upon its debut.
