Robin Williams, Mrs. Doubtfire

Twentieth Century Fox

Mrs. Doubtfire is coming back, dears!

Fox 2000 is developing a sequel to the 1993 comedy that will reunite Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus, per the Hollywood Reporter.

In the original Mrs. Doubtfire, Williams played a father of three who went undercover as a Scottish nanny. His wife (Sally Field) decided she wants a divorce and wouldn't allow her estranged husband to spend time with the kids. But, the Mrs. Doubtfire facade fooled her and the entire family (at first, anyway), allowing the incognito dad to spend more time with his family.

It's unclear whether Williams will be busting out the glasses, wig, floral dress and pearls again, or what exactly the plot line of the sequel will be. It's been 21 years since Mrs. Doubtfire was released, so presumably, all three kids are grown.

That said, Mara Wilson, who played Williams' youngest daughter on the silver screen but has since retired from acting, made it clear she won't be clamoring at a chance to reprise her role. "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," she tweeted.

"I'm glad I had the chance to be in it, and I'm proud of what we did, but I don't see how we could do it again," she wrote, before clarifying, "There are many, many reasons I don't want to be in Mrs. Doubtfire 2. But they haven't even asked me (yet), so no need to worry."
