Mara Wilson rules out Mrs Doubtfire sequel!

Los Angeles - Mara Wilson has no "interest" in reprising her role for the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel.

The former child star, who played daughter Natalie Hillard in the 1993 hit film, has ruled out her chances of joining Robin Williams and Chris Columbus, who directed the original comedy, in creating a follow-up movie.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday, Wilson, who left her acting career behind almost a decade ago, wrote: "They haven't asked me to be in it, and I think it would be weird if they did! I don't act much and am not a cute little kid anymore.

"The only reason I've said I don't want to do it is because of the literal hundreds of people asking me about it.

"I loved being in Doubtfire, and I'm grateful every day I had that experience. I met my sister-for-life Lisa Jakub there. I had a great time.

"But I don't think a sequel makes sense plotwise, and I don't think there'd be a part for me even if I did still act and was interested."

Meanwhile, although the idea of a sequel has been discussed since 2001, when Bonnie Hunt was enlisted to pen a script, Columbus and Williams never felt any of the drafts by Hunt or other writers were strong enough.

However, the project is said to have become active again earlier this year when Elf writer David Berenbaum became involved.
