Mrs. Doubtfire 2 Sequel Is “In The Works”, Says Fox 2000 Studio


Dude looks like a Lady: Mrs. Doubtfire 2 has been confirmed for future release, more than 20 years after the 1993 hit original – but will the other cast members be a part of the production?  

So, just when we thought the time had passed for us to never see our favourite Scottish house minder on the silver screen again, it looks like we haven’t seen the last of her  just yet. Mrs. Doubtfire, originally released in 1993, which grossed a record £262 million at the box office is now preparing for a sequel, which has confirmed the return of the lead role, award winning actor Robin Williams, who will be set to reprise his classic cross-dressing role. Reports have suggested the “Mrs. Doubtfire 2” project had been underway nearly thirteen years ago during 2001, but due to creative differences the idea had been shelved by director Chris Columbus and actor Robin Williams.  David Berenbaum, most notable for his Christmas smash hit film, Elf (2003) starring Will Ferrell has also been lined up to write the script for the return of
Mrs. Doubtfire.

However the movie announcement comes as fans and critics raise their concern over the prospect of former cast members returning, which includes former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan, Sally Field (The Amazing Spiderman, 2012 – present) and the three children – Natalie, Christopher and Lydia Hillard, who all starred in the original. Mara Wilson (Matilda, 1996), who played the young girl named  Natalie Hillard.   took to social media on the 18th April 2014 following the news of the sequel in response to the overwhelming  reaction from fans of the original. Taken from her account, the former Hollywood child star responded in one of many Tweet messages via her Twitter account.

The happy family: But will the old cast take part in the upcoming sequel?

But despite unconfirmed plots and roles awaited to be clarified, what we do know is the success of the original film paved the way for success in the future for actors including the above, and was an iconic piece of comedy which still stands as one of Robin Williams most finest roles in his career during the 1990’s, and perhaps is the movie he has found hard to live up to since.

With no set release date, “Mrs. Doubtfire 2” is yet to reveal more. Whilst we can’t wait, we can learn how to cook, clean, bake a cake, save a man from choking and put on Scottish female voices.
