Fox developing Mrs. Doubtfire 2

Fox is developing a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire , some 21 years after the first film scored a whopping $219 million at the US box office.

According to The Wrap , Elf screenwriter David Berenbaum has penned a script, with Robin Williams set to return in the title role and Chris Columbus also on board to direct.

The studio had initially tried to kick-start a sequel back in 2001, although it took until 2006 for a completed script to emerge, at which point it was rejected by Williams.

Nothing more has happened on the project since then, but the wheels definitely seem to be turning now, with Williams set to don the house-dress and rollers once more.

No plot details have been confirmed as yet, but we'd imagine that there might be grandchildren involved somewhere in the mix. Flaming false breasts, ahoy!
