The sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire is finally happening

Apr. 16, 2014by:

Could you make me a woman? Robin Williams is looking to suit up once again for MRS. DOUBTFIRE 2.

You may have heard back in the early 2000s that a sequel to the 1993 film was getting a second installment but unfortunately after awhile it came to a halt. The issue had much to do with the fact that neither William nor director Chris Columbus could find a script that could justify another go at it. In 2001, Bonnie Hunt was hired to do a take on the second installment but she didnt seem to make it work.

David Berenbaum (ELF, THE HAUNTED MANSION) was hired to write the latest draft for the sequel.

If you somehow havent seen MRS. DOUBTFIRE, the movie starred Williams as a struggling actor and recently divorced father of three who, in order to be closer to his children, takes on the persona of a Scottish nanny, Eupheginia Doubtfire. Sally Field, Pierce Brosnan, Mara Wilson, Lisa Jakub, Matthew Lawrence, and Harvey Fierstein co-starred.

Guys, I cannot begin to tell you how elated I am to hear this news. This movie came out when I was 9, and happens to be one of the most quoted comedies in my repertoire.

Yes, Columbus and Williams are currently attached.

SPOILER ALERT

...
...
...
Nick Fury shows up at the end and tells Mrs. Doutfire that she's part of a larger universe, she just doesn't know it. Then we'll get the Bosom Buddies/Tootsie/To Wong Foo/Jack & Jill/Priscilla, Queen of the Desert/Dallas Buyer's Club mega-movie we've always dreamed of.

Why????

Honestly, Mrs. Doubtfire is not a "good" film. It's entertaining at times and has memorable lines and scenes, but it's as flat as soda that has been sitting out for days. When re-watching it as an adult I don't like Columbus's film as much anymore. I still can't wrap my mind around it winning Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy) at the Golden Globes over Dave, Much Ado About Nothing, Strictly Ballroom, and Sleepless in Seattle.

This is the only RW sequel I ever wanted.

I could also use a Hook 2, but Mrs. Doubtfire as a character has so much potential. Sadly they are going to use some trope like "we need to send in an old lady posing as a drug dealers mother" or something stupid like that.

I'd rather see Robin Williams do something original.

Although I love Ms. Doubtfire, this type of sequel has missed it's window by about 10-12 years. Robin Williams is still as manic as ever. Give him more adult related material to work with.

Mr. Doubtfire. Sally Field in traumatising, misguided drag as a man.

Make it happen.

Maybe this time the plot involves someone thinking he's actually Mrs. Doubtfire and Daniel Hillard is who he constantly has to hide as? I dunno but it's a fail if it doesn't have Uncle Frank and Aunt Jack.

Not much of an opinion on this, but wouldn't it be amazing if they got Dustin Hoffman to reprise his role as Tootsie for this?? And then Hugo Weaving shows up as Priscilla?? Talk about a hell of a cross-dressing cross-over

I can imagine that the sequel will revolve around his effort to get out of his Mrs Doubtfire persona. It's like, when you've become a different person for so long, you forget how to be yourself again. It would be a bit darker than the original movie, though. More like a satire.
Or hey, maybe this time it's Pierce Brosnan who will get to play as an old housemaid! :D

I imagine the sequel would involve his grandchildren at this point. But having been on television, I don't see how likely it would be for anyone to be fooled like that again. Regardless, I really like the original and find it hard to dismiss the idea of a sequel.

Like Netforce said the original ended perfectly and to me it seems like an unnecessary encore. Don't get me wrong I'm a big fan of all involved and I loved the original. I just don't see how they can justify it. I mean what's the story? His kids have kids--his grandchildren--and ask him to bring her back, after 20+ years to make a difference in their lives? The character (Mrs. Doubtfire) he portrayed on tv makes a comeback? Nothing I can think of sounds remotely reasonable. We will see I guess.

No way. This will most likely be some direct-to-video knock-off sequel like Son of the Mask or Christmas Story 2 or somthing, with no one from the original movie in it. Then again, there were 3 Big Mamma's House movies, so who knows.

Don't know how to feel about this. The original is a classic and is a good one and done film, but I would like for Williams to be in a hit film again. His last good movie was World's Greatest Dad and that was five years ago.

This is like a Twins sequel. Really... Who cares?

I can understand Ghostbusters, Goonies, and Gremlins but Mrs. Doubtfire? Why? Might as well make a Jumangi 2 while you're at it. -_-

I don't know. I think the story concluded nicely when the movie was over. Where would the story go from there?
