The nanny of the 90’s may be returning to the big screen.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fox 2000 has a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel in the works, reuniting Robin Williams with director Chris Columbus. It’s not clear if Williams will return to the wig, mask and pantyhose or what exactly the plot of the sequel will be, but one thing is certain - the sequel will not feature a return from the entire cast.
The original Mrs. Doubtfire debuted in 1993, starring Williams as a father in the midst of a divorce who decides to go undercover as a Scottish nanny to spend more time with his children.
Mara Wilson, who played Williams’ youngest daughter in the film, tweeted that she will not be returning for her role in the sequel.
For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
I've been in some mediocre movies, but I've never been in a sequel. And I have no interest in being in one now.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
Wilson added that sequels on't do well unless they are planned as part of a trilogy or series and that the film "ended where it needed to end."
She said she was glad and proud to have been a part of the iconic film but doesn't see how the cast could do it again. Wilson also cleared up that she hadn't even been asked to be a part of the rumored sequel's cast.
