New 'Mrs. Doubtfire' Film Coming, Co-Star Says Sequel May Suck

| by Michael Allen

A sequel to the 1993 hit film "Mrs. Doubtfire" starring Robin Williams is being planned.

"Mrs. Doubtfire" director Chris Columbus will direct the sequel and "Elf" screenwriter David Berenbaum will pen the script, notes The Hollywood Reporter.

In the original film, Williams dressed in drag to play nanny Euphegenia Doubtfire in order to spend more time with his kids in spite of his shrewish ex-wife played by Sally Field.

A sequel has been proposed since 2001, bur numerous scripts didn't interest Columbus and Williams until now.

Gawker reports that actress Mara Wilson who played Williams' younger daughter in the original film posted on Twitter that she would not be part of the new "Mrs. Doubtfire" because sequels usually "suck."

Wilson tweeted, "Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end."
