Robin Williams is reportedly in talks to reprise his role in the hugely successful 1993 film "Mrs. Doubtfire" for an upcoming sequel.

Fox 2000 is developing the sequel that both Williams (who also served as co-producer) and "Mrs. Doubtfire" director Chris Columbus are reportedly involved with. In the original film, Williams played a down-on-his-luck actor and dad in the middle of a messy divorce. After he moves out of the family house, he cross-dresses as an elderly Scottish nanny to spend time with his children.

The film made $440 million domestic and worldwide combined and is considered a staple when it comes to family-friendly comedies. Williams won a Golden Globe for best actor in a musical/comedy. Other original cast members include Sally Field and Pierce Brosnan.
