Nothing's official yet, but more than 20 years later, your favorite nanny could return to the big screen


Well, great news everyone. More than 20 years later, Mrs. Doubtfire — the most hilarious and creepy comedy of the 90s — might be getting a sequel.

Fox 2000 is reportedly developing the film, with Chris Columbus returning as the director and Elf writer David Berenbaum handling the script, according to the Hollywood Reporter. And, of course, Robin Williams would star as the ineffable Euphegenia Doubtfire.

A sequel has been rumored in the past, so we don’t know for sure if it will ultimately make it all the way to the big screen this time around. But once Berenbaum was tapped as the scribe earlier this year, the project gained new momentum, according to the Hollywood Reporter. All we know is: if it really happens, we’ll celebrate like this.

Either way, it doesn’t look like Mara Wilson, who played Robin Williams’ youngest daughter, will be in it. She announced on Twitter that she’s simply not interested in being a part of it, but we think it’s really because she’s mad at someone for eating her begonias. That, or she is still recovering after being the victim of a run-by fruiting.
