The writer of Elf, David Berenbaum is going to write the script for the sequel.

The studio is creating a continuation of the 1993 hit Mrs. Doubtfire. The movie may even feature its main star, Robin Williams and is directed by Chris Columbus. David Berenbaum, who composed Elf, is composing the script for Mrs. Doubtfire sequel. The film stars Williams as a divorced and struggling actor who assumes the persona of a Scottish babysitter, Euphegenia Doubtfire, in order to develop a closer relationship with his children.

Williams won a Golden Globe in the best actor in a musical/comedy category for this film. Alongside this the film itself won the Globe for best comedy/musical and grossed around $219 million locally and $222 million universally. Mrs. Doubtfire sequel has been in the works since 2001 when Bonnie Hunt was asked to compose a script, yet regardless of numerous drafts and different recorders enlisted, the undertaking gradually passed on and has been inert for quite some time.

The task got dynamic again early not long from now with Berenbaum's contribution. Keeping in mind that much time hasn’t passed since Berenbaum’s involvement it is not certain whether all the components will work in cohesion this time around. Williams and Columbus are appended and cheerful about the re-initiation of the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, thus it is best to hope that the film turns out as amazingly as its first part.

Berenbaum has chipped away at family movies, for example, Haunted Mansion and The Spiderwick Chronicles. Similarly, Columbus is in preproduction on his most recent motion picture, Pixels, the science fiction film that will star Adam Sandler and shoot in Toronto this sunny season. What’s lined up for Williams is not only his Lionsgate's show “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn” opening May 23 but also CBS' “The Crazy Ones.”
