Kevin Hart wants to star in Mrs. Doubtfire remake
The actor, whose Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will open in US theaters on December 20, says he would like to star in a remake of the other Robin Williams classic as well
Actor-comedian Kevin Hart says he would like to feature in the remake of 1993 Robin Williams starrer Mrs. Doubtfire.
During a recent interview to promote his new film -- Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Hart was asked what other classic films he would like to be involved in remaking. "I'll stay on the Robin Williams train and say Mrs. Doubtfire. That was a very amazing performance on both ends for him. I think that's one I'd love to get to play," he said.
Mrs. Doubtfire follows a divorced actor who dresses up as a female housekeeper to be able to interact with his children. It also stars Sally Field, Pierce Brosnan, Harvey Fierstein and Robert Prosky.
The film won several awards, including an Academy Award for Best Makeup and a Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. Williams himself received a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor.
In 2001, there was a plan to make a sequel, with Williams, set to return in disguise as an old nanny, but the project was scrapped due to problems with the script. In December 2006, Williams said that if it was not going to be done right, then it was not worth doing, and that there would not be a sequel with him in it.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will open in US theaters on December 20. The upcoming film is tied to the 1995 film starring Williams.
