The death of Robin Williams has likely ended production on Mrs. Doubtfire 2, though Variety suggests a reboot might be considered.
Sources say no decision has been made on the project, which is fair enough, considering how soon after Williams’ death Variety began enquiries into the project.
Chris Columbus was set to return and direct David Berenbaum’s script for Fox 2000. Berenbaum had been meeting with Williams in recent months, and began work on a second draft.
Columbus said in a statement, “We were friends for 21 years. Our children grew up together, he inspired us to spend our lives in San Francisco and I loved him like a brother. The world was a better place with Robin in it. And his beautiful legacy will live on forever.”
