Robin Williams may be returning for an upcoming "Mrs. Doubtfire" sequel -- but one of the film's child stars wants to stay as far away from it as possible.
It was announced yesterday that Fox 2000 is working on a followup to the beloved 1993 flick, with Robin, original director Chris Columbus and "Elf" writer David Berenbaum all attached.
The first film revolved around a divorced dad who dresses up as an old Scottish nanny in order to spend more time with his children. Sally Field, Pierce Brosnan, Mara Wilson and Matthew Lawrence all co-starred.
And while the title character is definitely coming back, one of the kids wants nothing to do with it.
Mara Wilson, now 26, took to Twitter yesterday to publicly distance herself from the project -- saying sequels "generally suck."
For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
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.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
I'm glad I had the chance to be in it, and I'm proud of what we did, but I don't see how we could do it again.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
There are many, many reasons I don't want to be in Mrs. Doubtfire 2. But they haven't even asked me (yet), so no need to worry.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
They haven't asked me to be in it, and I think it would be weird if they did! I don't act much and am not a cute little kid anymore.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
I loved being in Doubtfire, and I'm grateful every day I had that experience. I met my sister-for-life Lisa there. I had a great time.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
But I don't think a sequel makes sense plotwise, and I don't think there'd be a part for me even if I did still act and was interested.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
Lisa Jakub (AKA Lydia) also retired from acting and currently works as a writer. She posted about the sequel news this morning on Facebook.
"No one involved with the movie has contacted me and I don't know any more than you do about the details," she writes.
Lots of people are asking if I would do it - and my answer is a really solid "I don't know." It's really hard to comment on something you have no information about," Lisa continues. "I'm not sure if my character would still be hanging out with the rest of the Hillards. I'm pretty sure Lydia would be a lawyer, living in some remote part of the world, defending the downtrodden and sneering at the bad guys.
So far, no word from Matthew, Sally or Pierce.
