Well put take some cake and call it a beauty treatment because "Mrs. Doubtfire" is getting a sequel. The 1993 Robin Williams comedy has a follow-up in progress, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Of course Robin Williams is on board to bring back his role as the housekeeping, cross-dressing, divorced dad.

Chris Columbus will be back on as the film's director with "Elf's" David Berenbaum writing the screenplay. The idea of a sequel has been shuffling around since 2001 when they asked Bonnie Hunt to write the script, but the project slowly died.

For those who might not remember, "Mrs. Doubtfire" features Williams as a recently divorced actor who attempts to get closer to his children by becoming their nanny, Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire.

After news of the sequel broke, Mara Wilson, who played Williams' youngest daughter Natalie (most notably known for her role as Matilda in "Matilda"), tweeted that she would not be a part of the sequel.

Perhaps the rest of the cast will be on board for some crazy comedic antics.
