After 20 years of the iconic floral-print being left in the closet to collect dust, Robin Williams is returning to the big screen as ‘Mrs. Doubtfire‘ is what seems to be a follow-up from the original “Mrs. Doubtfire“.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, a follow-up from the original 1993 comedy with SOME but not all original crew members. Robin Williams is set to return as well as original director Chris Columbus and writing the script is the original writer David Berenbaum.
Not all cast members are in on the project. The youngest daughter in the film, played by Mara Wilson, posted on Facebook and Twitter saying,
“For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I. Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end.”

Good thing Matthew Lawrence talked to TMZ to confirm he would be working on the sequel. “Of course I would be on board,” he tells TMZ. “I hope they make the second as good as the first. The first was so good.” Lawrence also told the website he had no idea why Mara was so against the idea.
Fox 2000 are the planned developers of the film.
The original Mrs. Doubtfire went on to win an Oscar for makeup, and two Golden Globes (one for Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical and the other for Lead Actor in a Comedy or Musical).
No word on any other confirmation regarding other original cast members returning for the sequel or not.
