The year was 1993. Grunge was in, along with flannel and angst. And Robin William was on the big screen – playing the part of nanny√ā¬†Euphegenia Doubtfire – a persona he took on while playing divorced dad Daniel Hillard to spend more time with his children.

Over 20 years ago, Mrs. Doubtfire was a huge hit for Williams and director√ā¬†Chris Columbus. The film brought in√ā¬†$441 million worldwide, on a budget of just $25 million.√ā¬†It was the second highest grossing film of 1993, behind Jurassic Park.

Now, it looks like a new generation will get to meet Williams as Mrs. Doubtfire, with sources at Fox 2000 confirming that a sequel is now in the works.

The script will be written by√ā¬†David Berenbaum, who wrote Elf in 1993, and followed with√ā¬†The Haunted Mansion, Zoom and The Spiderwick Chronicles.

No plot details or release timetable have been made available yet.
