"Mrs. Doubtfire" Getting a Sequel -- And One Star Wants No Part of It!

1124_doubtfire_launch
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."

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.

Check out the gallery above to see what all the kids look like today.
