The world has been waiting more than 20 years for a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire. But even though production was in the works on a second film, it looks like Mrs. Doubtfire 2 will likely be canceled due to Robin Williams’ sudden death yesterday.
The 63-year-old actor had said several times in the past that a sequel to the film simply wouldn’t work but he changed his tune eventually and was attached to reprise his iconic role.
Director Chris Columbus, who also directed the original movie, spoke about losing not only his star but his true friend, saying:
He sought the advice of Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to find out how J.K.- and British fans of The Goonies- helped to make House Of Secrets what it is!
So what did the super successful author have to say about the finished product? She wrote:
"A breakneck, jam-packed roller coaster of an adventure about the secret power of books, HOUSE OF SECRETS comes complete with three resourceful sibling heroes, a seriously creepy villainess, and barrel loads of fantasy and fear."
Nice! Though she did finish the quote with a JK, so we're really not sure if she liked it or not! LOLz!
With the upcoming 25th anniversary of The Goonies, wouldn't it be AWESOME if they made an announcement about the long-awaited sequel?
Unfortunately, that's unlikely to happen…but how would U like to see The Goonies on BROADWAY?!?!?
Here's what director Richard Donner had to say about the future of Goonies:
“We were thinking that (the sequel) for years back, couldn’t do it. Felt like everything we were doing would hurt what we had with the original, hence the musical. But Steven (Spielberg) said something the other day to me that he and Chris (Columbus) were talking about and maybe something — but I don’t think there’d be a sequel. I wouldn’t remake it. If anything it’d be something new and fresh. Hopefully we’re doing this as a musical on Broadway. It took forever to get on Broadway. It was a long, long process but it just got a lot shorter because there’s a great writer/producer (Tim Long) who does musicals on The Simpsons which are classic. He just delivered a treatment on ‘Goonies’ as a musical and it’s friggin’ great.”
Corey Feldman must be having a party in his head with the possibility of somehow getting involved with this project!
How excited are U for this? Do U think it'll actually happen?
The Baywatch star hadn't talked too much about her diagnosis over the years, but now that things are taking a positive turn, she's ready to speak up about the disease, saying:
"I'm very fortunate that I've had Hep C for about 16 years. 16 years ago that was [presented to me] as a death sentence. I think it really worked on my self esteem. Even though I may have looked confident on the outside, I think it really was a dark cloud that lingered over me."
She's tried different medications in the past, but now Pam is moving on to a new process that's FDA-approved! These new drugs work to destroy the virus, and she says the outcome could be amazing!
