Everyone's favorite cross-dressing nanny is readying to return to the big screen with a sequel.

The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report that there's officially a sequel in the works, and Robin Williams is involved -- but it hasn't been confirmed if he'll reprise the role of Euphegenia Doubtfire.

David Berenbaum (Elf) is writing the script and Mrs. Doubtfire director Chris Columbus is also said to be involved in the sequel.

We're hoping, that after 20 years, Williams' ex-wife (played by Sally Field in the movie) held onto the house at 2640 Steiner, because we doubt she'd ever be able to afford to move back there on an interior decorator's salary. We're also curious to see how Williams' three children turned out. But if we'll find out seems up in the air, as Perez Hilton pointed out this morning, Mara Wilson (who plays youngest daughter Natalie) has no interest in returning to reprise her role. She says sequels usually suck, and we have to agree -- so they better not mess this up.

And if for some reason they decide to move Mrs. Doubtfire out of San Francisco, we'll definitely be bummed. Mrs. Doubtfire belongs in San Francisco.

We'll update you when we learn more. In the meantime, check out the original trailer for the 1993 movie:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
