Mara Wilson Thinks 'Mrs. Doubtfire' Sequel Is A Bad Idea
Mara Wilson, who played the adorable Nattie Hillard in 1993's Mrs. Doubtfire, thinks that the planned sequel to the film is a bad idea.
The film's star, Robin Williams, is reportedly back on board, and Chris Columbus is set to direct the sequel, which, we assume, sees Williams' out of work actor character Daniel Hillard finally with a steady job and grown kids.
So far Williams is the only cast member from the first film on board; and Wilson says that if she's contacted by producers she has no plans on returning for part two.
"For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I... Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end," she tweeted.
Mara added that she hasn't been asked to be in the film, and says there are "many, many reasons" she wouldn't do it.
The actress did explain that she has no regrets over starring in the original.
"I loved being in Doubtfire, and I'm grateful every day I had that experience. I met my sister-for-life Lisa (Jakub, who played big sister Lydia in the movie) there. I had a great time," she tweets.
There is an inkling of a chance that she actually is interested in reprising her role though, she also wrote that "The only reason I've SAID I don't want to do it is because of the literal hundreds of people asking me about it."
Mara's primary focus now is in writing, not acting.
"They haven't asked me to be in it, and I think it would be weird if they did! I don't act much and am not a cute little kid anymore," she says.
