Wait, The Director of ‘The Purge’ Wrote the Robin Williams Movie, ‘Jack’?

Purge Anarchy
Universal Pictures

In the mid ‘90s, Robin Williams was starting to take some risks. He had just filmed two crowd-pleasers in a row – ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ and ‘Jumanji’ – and it was apparent that he was looking for something, let’s say, meatier. And Williams would later find those roles with ‘The Birdcage’ and ‘Good Will Hunting’ (a movie that would win him an Academy Award). But, before that, Williams eyed a script that had been the subject of a bidding war between every major studio in town. After Disney won the rights, Williams convinced director Francis Ford Coppola to direct. On the surface, it appeared to be a prestige project. But that project turned out to be ‘Jack’ – a movie about a young boy who, by the age of 10, appears to be 40 -- a now almost legendary critical failure that was written by James DeMonaco … the man who also wrote and directed a movie nothing like 'Jack,' ‘The Purge’ and its upcoming sequel.

Mrs. Doubtfire Where Are They Now
20th Century Fox

Robin Williams in drag equals comedy gold. That could've been the elevator pitch for 'Mrs. Doubtfire,' in which Williams' character dresses up like a matronly British nanny so he can see his kids, whom he had lost in a custody battle.
