8 Biggest Movie And TV News This Week (April 19)

19 April 2014 1:25 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

It’s been a bit of a crazy week in the movie industry, and we’ve got a whole host of things to discuss in regards to the biggest movie and TV news that dominated our RSS feeds over the last seven days. Tinseltown is a busy place, and now that we’re getting farther into 2014 we’re getting more and more updates about what movies will be dominating our cinemas for the foreseeable future, and which shows we’ll likely be tuning into week after week.

We’ve got a few new comic book adaptations on the way that will grace both the small screen and the silver screen; and we heard updates about whether or not Spider-Man could ever fight alongside the Avengers, or if Fox wants the Fantastic Four showing up alongside the X-Men. We’ve also got a big casting rumour to cross »

16 Moments That Prove Mrs. Doubtfire Will Always Be Hilarious

18 April 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

A Mrs. Doubtfire sequel is in the works, but before we get all hot and bothered about that, let's take a minute to review what we love about the 1993 classic. It doesn't matter if you're 5 or 50; Robin Williams is hilarious as Daniel, a down-on-his-luck dad hoping to hold onto partial custody of his kids when his wife (Sally Field) decides to separate. In a stroke of genius, he enlists his brother to construct custom prosthetics to make him look like a nanny, and Mrs. Doubtfire is born. The family has grown up a lot since the movie was released, but we'll always remember them as the Hillards. Take a look at the timeless moments we'll never forget. View Slideshow › »

7 Ways to Make the Mrs. Doubtfire Sequel Not Terrible

18 April 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

There is not a day that goes by that we aren't falling to our knees, shaking our fists to the sky and yelling: "Why hasn't there been a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel?!" Wait, no. That's not what we yell. We yell: "Why hasn't anyone punched Justin Bieber in the face yet?! Also, I need a cookie!" So while we can't say that we've been waiting for a sequel to the 1993 Robin Williams comedy for a long time, we can say that when news broke that Williams and director Chris Columbus were toying around with the idea of a second Mrs. Doubtfire film, we were intrigued.  But intrigued in a very skeptical way. That movie was so much fun and so wonderful on its own. The ending was »

It was just revealed that Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus will return for a sequel to "Mrs Doubtfire." While fans of the original 1993 film are happy to hear that a follow-up is happening, not everyone is excited about the news. Mara Wilson, who played youngest child in "Mrs. Doubtfire," tweeted that she has nothing to do with the sequel and she doesn't plan to be a part of it. "For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the 'Mrs. Doubtfire' sequel, nor will I," she wrote. "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." When asked why she's so against the film, Wilson replied: "Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series.

Mara Wilson Swears She Would Never Even Consider Being In A 'Mrs. Doubtfire' Sequel, Causes Twitter Uproar

17 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Should Robin WilliamsMrs. Doubtfire sequel become a reality, there is one actress who will definitely not be reprising her role in the classic 90s comedy: Mara Wilson.

Wilson, now 26, was just five years old when she got her breakout role in Mrs. Doubtfire as the youngest of three children, Natalie Hillard. Wilsen went on to earn a place in pop culture history when she played Susan Walker in the 1994 remake of Miracle on 34th Street, and is perhaps most beloved for her starring turn in Matilda (1996) After the 90s came to a close, Wilson left professional acting behind, and says she has no intention of picking up where she left off in Hollywood should she be asked to participate in a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel.

“For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I,” Wilson proclaimed on Twitter Thursday, April »

Mrs. Doubtfire 2: Robin Williams Returns, Mara Wilson Doesn't

17 April 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Update: Mara Wilson, the actress who played the adorable Natalie Hillard in the first movie, has just tweeted out saying that "sequels generally suck unless they were planned..." We're sad to hear that it's unlikely she'll return, but we're still excited for the show to go on!

April 17, 2014 - It's been 21 years since Robin Williams put on a wig, dress, and some makeup, and he's ready to bring one of our favorite little old ladies is out from retirement!

If we had to describe Mrs. Doubtfire in just one word, we'd have to say "charming." The 1993 movie is about a man going through a divorce and, as a way to see his kids more often, dresses up as a feisty old nanny! It's a movie we still come back to - even to this day!

17 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Get those dinner reservations in order - a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire is in the works. Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus are attached to the 1993 family comedy's sequel, which is in development at Fox 2000.
