With so many comedy hits of the past getting supposed follow ups ('Ghostbusters 3,' the 'Twins' sequel 'Triplets') it's no surprise that 'Mrs. Doubtfire 2' is being prepped, with both star Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus set to return for more cross-dressing hijinks.
Currently there are three Sherlock Holmes-based TV and movie franchises going strong. There's 'Elementary,' which is coming to CBS, there's the BBC 'Sherlock' and the Robert Downey Jr.-headed 'Sherlock Holmes' movies. Paramount has seen that the game is afoot, and is talking to Chris Columbus about rebooting his script for 'Young Sherlock Holmes.'
Chris Columbus, known for decades as a director who strikes terror and fear into the hearts of moviegoers (kidding) is going to produce and direct a movie that's a bit out of the family friendly zone he's normally accustomed to.
