Although it’s been in development hell for years after the original Mrs. Doubtfire first made big money in theaters, it seems that Mrs. Doubtfire 2 is finally happening. Most likely fueled by Robin Williams’ return to the public eye (with notable roles in The Crazy Ones, a quick spot on Louie, a few Nintendo commercials, and the upcoming The Angriest Man in Brooklyn), Mrs. Doubtfire 2 will be directed by Christopher Columbus (who directed the original film) and feature a script written by David Berenbaum (Elf).
Oh, and Robin Williams is back. Whether or not Williams’ brand of comedy can survive in this day and age, I’m surprisingly wishing the film good luck. Assuming Williams can just jump right on the old horse, this might be a nice and nostalgic trip down memory lane for folks who lived in the 90s. For everyone else, maybe they’ll get a laugh out of seeing someone other than Tyler Perry adorn old woman makeup?[via The Wrap]
