Get those dinner reservations in order – a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire is in the works.
Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus are attached to the 1993 family comedy's sequel, which is in development at Fox 2000. Elf screenwriter David Berenbaum is writing the script, which means you can possibly expect a scene where Mrs. Doubtfire's engines are revived by the power of Christmas.

Scarlett Johansson's iOS-turned-soulmate "Samantha" in Her may seem like a fun alternative to dating, but don't expect to find the equivalent from your own iPhone. Siri is quick to shut down any inklings that she is similar to Johansson's role.

Mrs. Doubtfire hit theaters 20 years ago Sunday, and the classic comedy seems more relevant than ever. Just this week, a 7-year-old girl saved her mother's life, claiming she learned the Heimlich maneuver from watching the movie.
Earlier this year, Robin Williams pointed out that the floral frock Kim Kardashian wore to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala was reminiscent of one he sported in the film. In fact, Mrs. Doubtfire's sartorial influence can be seen on several of today's stars. Here are some other examples we discovered.

In 1978, Mork & Mindy made Robin Williams the hottest thing on TV. In 1989, Good Morning, Vietnam made him the hottest thing in movies.
Now that it's (practically) fall 2013, he's returning to the small screen in The Crazy Ones, a new CBS sitcom from Ally McBeal and Boston Public producer David E. Kelly.
Where that will place the 62-year-old often-still-frenetic comedian – who proudly wears his battle scars, including those he earned thanks to problems with the bottle – on the temperature gauge remains to be seen.

CBS is the warrior king of networks, and its upfront typically feels like the ritual unfurling of an illustrated tapestry of conquests.
This year's event included the cast of How I Met Your Mother, now heading into its final season, singing a parody of Les Misérables beneath yellow umbrellas on the Carnegie Hall stage.
David Letterman, who is now the official anti-Jimmy of late night, made a brief (and rare) appearance, and Robin Williams, a high-profile addition to the lineup with a new sitcom called The Crazy Ones, gave the crowd a few moments of fast-riffing standup. He mentioned prostitutes, cocaine, FOX News and the notoriously bizarre variety show Pink Lady and Jeff.
Here are three shows that struck me as keepers, at least for as long as the audience will have them.

Jonathan Winters – an improvisational genius and the comedic spiritual godfather to a generation of younger comics, including Robin Williams, Jim Carrey and the late Andy Kaufman – died of natural causes Thursday night. He was surrounded by family and friends at his home in Montecito, Calif., the Associated Press reports. He was 87.
Tweeted Steve Martin on Friday: "Goodbye, Jonath[a]n Winters. You were not only one of the greats, but one of the great greats."

Matt Damon more than made up for his decade of being bumped from Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Declaring "I am in command of this ship," Damon not only hijacked the show Thursday night, but he brought along a little big-name help.
Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, Demi Moore, Amy Adams, Sally Field, Robert De Niro, Don Cheadle, John Krasinski and Oprah Winfrey all played a part.
Andy Garcia sat in as sidekick. Sheryl Crow led the band.
And where was Kimmel? Oh, he was there, all right: gagged and tied on the back of the set, as Damon took over.

Heroic World War II general and president of Columbia University – and one of the best-liked American presidents – Dwight D. Eisenhower wasn't particularly known for his sense of humor, but that may change now that he is being played by Robin Williams.
As seen in this photo, Williams, 61, is made up to play Eisenhower during his White House years. Ike was 62 when first sworn in, and 71 when he handed over the reins to the 43-year-old JFK in 1961.
And the role is for The Butler, an adaptation of a Washington Post article about the real-life Eugene Allen, a White House domestic-staff member who served under eight First Families. Forest Whitaker plays Allen and Oprah Winfrey will play his wife.
