With the sad and shocking news of Robin Williams’ passing early Monday, many of his fans are wondering what will happen to his unreleased work. The most notable project Williams was working on is the sequel to the beloved 1993 hit “Mrs. Doubtfire.”
Filming for the “Mrs. Doubtfire 2” had not even begun, so ET! Online reports that the movie will more than likely not move forward. Reports say that screenwriter David Berenbaum had recently met with Williams to go over the script.
A reboot might happen later on though. “Hollywood often likes to ‘reboot’ hit movie franchises or proceed with sequels without the original stars. Just ask Batman, ‘Speed 2,’ or even Professor Dumbledore from the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise,” Variety says. Knowing Hollywood, it won’t be long before a Robin Williams biopic is announced.
Robin Williams stars in two upcoming movies, “Night at the Museum: Secrets of the Tomb,” set to be released on December 19, and “Merry Friggin’ Christmas,” set to hit theaters on November 7.
“He also starred in ‘Boulevard,’ which has yet to be picked up by a distributer, and voices a dog in ‘Absolutely Anything,’ set to arrive in theaters in 2015,” Variety reports.
Robin Williams passed away Monday morning due to suicide. TMZ reports, “he tried slashing his left wrist, but it only left ‘acute superficial cuts,’” Williams then hung himself inside his home while his wife was out running errands. Williams’ body was discovered by his personal assistant. Sources say that the actor had been suffering with severe depression.
