Mrs. Doubtfire 2 Is In The Works

Chris Columbus' Mrs. Doubtfire was such a gigantic hit in 1993 it's kind of amazing that we don't already have a sequel. Made for a paltry $25 million (I guess it's not that expensive to cover Robin Williams in prosthetics and make-up) the film managed to make not only $219 million domestically, but an additional $222 million at the foreign box office - totaling nearly $450 million internationally. It would seem that somebody over at Fox finally took a look at these numbers, because now part two is on the way.

Paul Walker’s Brothers to Help Complete 'Fast & Furious 7'

Paul Walker had shot a great deal of footage for Fast & Furious 7 before his death in November, but there still wasn't enough finished material to complete his performance.
