Faces & Names: ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ sequel in the works
Robin Williams is ready to dig his old dress out of storage, as he’s set to star in “Mrs. Doubtfire 2,” according to an individual familiar with the Fox 2000 sequel.
Chris Columbus will return to direct from a script by “Elf” writer David Berenbaum.
While it has been more than 20 years since the original “Mrs. Doubtfire” grossed an impressive
$441 million worldwide, it’s unlikely Williams would miss a beat reprising his role as the cross-dressing character, since he’ll be slathered in old-age makeup anyway, along with a wig, fake teeth and eyeglasses. The gifted comic actor could realistically play the beloved character for years to come.
In “Mrs. Doubtfire,” Williams played a down-on-his-luck actor still stinging from a divorce who pretends to be a Scottish nanny in order to spend more time with his kids. Sally Field and Pierce Brosnan co-starred.
