Mrs. Doubtfire 2

Doubtfire_poster.jpgAs previously mentioned, sequels can be tricky things. Trying to recapture the essence of the first movie while being fresh and new is not an easy thing to do. However, if the sequel you’re making is Mrs. Doubtfire, you may have a chance. Why? Because the first Mrs. Doubtfire rode on the back of Robin Williams, and that man is always fresh and funny. Put him in another one and it’ll work. Without question. Because Williams will MAKE it work one way or the other. I’ve gone on record several times with my belief that Williams is the single most versatile and talented actor working today… but comedy is his true element. All you’ve got to do is sit back and watch the man shine.

The great folks over at Coming Soon give us this:

A sequel to the 1993 hit comedy Mrs. Doubtfire is in the works at Fox 2000. Robin Williams is in early talks to reprise the role of Daniel Hillard/Mrs. Doubtfire and resume producing duties with Marsha Williams, says The Hollywood Reporter. Bonnie Hunt is also in talks to write the film.

The original, directed by Chris Columbus (first two “Harry Potter” films), earned $219.2 million domestically and $222 million overseas for a massive worldwide total of $441.2 million, or the 53rd highest-grossing film ever. Mrs. Doubtfire received two Golden Globe awards in 1994, one for best picture (comedy/musical) and one for Williams as best actor in a comedy/musical. The film also won an Oscar for best makeup.
