Robin Williams is getting set to don the make-up and wig again and return to his beloved Mrs Doubtfire role in a long-awaited sequel.

The funnyman tells website Sky News he avoided the character for a while because sequel ideas failed to inspire him, but he's thrilled with a new script from comedienne/actress Bonnie Hunt.

He says, "There are plenty more adventures left for her, and the script could easily run to film three too. Fans will love it."

The 1993 movie made a whopping $219 million (GBP121.6 million) in America alone.
