Robin Williams is set to don a dress once more for the sequel to Mrs Doubtfire.

Williams and the director of the original film, Christopher Columbus, are both attached to the remake, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Meanwhile David Berenbaum, who wrote the Will Ferrell hit movie Elf, is working on the script.

Mrs Doubtfire was release in 1993, and starred Williams as a struggling actor and divorced father. In order to be closer to his children, he takes on the persona of a Scottish nanny, Eupheginia Doubtfire.

Williams won a Golden Globe for his role.

A sequel has apparently been in the works for more than 10 years, but the project had fizzled out before Berenbaum's involvement and confirmation Williams and Columbus would return.
