A sequel to the 1993 box office hit Mrs. Doubtfire has been talked about for over a decade, so what’s the latest you and or your mom might be asking? Well, after Robin Williams reportedly rejected a script in 2006, and the project has remained dead, the actor noted in a recent interview, “They kept trying and it doesn’t work… because at the end of the first one they reveal who [Mrs. Doubtfire] is.”
Fast forward a few years and David Berenbaum (Elf) may have found a way to make it work, because The Wrap reports Fox 2000 has revived Mrs. Doubtfire 2 with a script by Berenbaum. Williams is on board and Chris Columbus will return to direct. The report does not specify where Mrs. Doubtfire 2 will pick up or who else will return; but we know Mara Wilson won’t be:
For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I.

Anyone out there looking forward to Mrs. Doubtfire 2?
In other sequel news, Beverly Hills Cop 4 may begin filming this summer. During an interview with Bloomberg, Jerry Bruckheimer said that they are still finishing the script for Beverly Hills Cop 4 with tentative plans to shoot in a few months.
We’re in the process of getting the script finished. Paramount is very excited about making it, Eddie is very excited, Brett Ratner is excited about doing it, so I think we’re moving forward. Hopefully we’ll start end of summer, beginning of fall and get rolling on it. We’re going to take Eddie back to Detroit – he’s going to be in Beverly Hills and we take him to Detroit. So we’re going to have some fun with him, he’s really excited about doing it.”
Does anyone feel a lot older after this news?
Harry Potter will be known for many things; it’s the most successful film franchise of all time for starters, and likely when all is said and done will have the most versions of DVDs and Blu-rays you have ever seen. There is a box set coming next week, the Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection that can be yours for a few hundred dollars. To celebrate, one devoted fan put together this rather awesome video you can watch below.
The video goes through all eight films in a well put together, edited and musically scored retrospective that should make even the grumpiest of Muggles smile.
