According to The Hollywood Reporter, a sequel had been in the works since 2001, but was put on hold for years until recently.

In the original 1993 comedy, Robin plays Daniel Hillard, a struggling voice actor and divorced father who disguises himself as an elderly housekeeper in order to see his kids while his ex-wife has custody.

Daniel uses prosthetics, a wig and a dress to get into character as beloved Scottish nanny, Euphegenia Doubtfire.
