It looks like Hollywood is finally out of ideas.

There are many movies that merit multiple installments — Star Wars, The Godfather, Bill and Ted — but there are many more movie sequels that leave us scratching our heads, wondering what could have possibly possessed anyone to revisit the originals. One such film is Mrs. Doubtfire, the 90′s “dad dresses up as improbable British nanny to spend more time with kids, post-divorce” caper starring comedy legend Robin Williams.

Now, 20-plus years after the original hit theaters, Mrs. Doubtfire is getting the sequel absolutely no one asked for.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Williams and director Chris Columbus have signed on to add yet another chapter to the drag-loving dramedy. Giving the now-franchise a facelift, producers have brought in Elf writer David Berenbaum to pen the script.

But while the movie may give some much-needed closure to any bizarre viewers of the first film who believed it to have loose ends, the audience will have to accept the fact that the sequel won’t be a reunion for the entirety of the original cast. Mara Wilson, who played Williams’ youngest daughter in the original, announced on Thursday that she doesn’t share her former co-star’s enthusiasm for the update.

“For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I,” tweeted Wilson. “I’ve been in some mediocre movies, but I’ve never been in a sequel. And I have no interest in being in one now.”

While the initial film had rather neatly wrapped things up by the end — the family found out that their bizarre, rubber-skinned sitter was actually dad in disguise, but all was eventually forgiven and everyone got together for some amicable Chinese takeout — it seems Hollywood just isn’t ready to stop beating dead horses.
