It's official! The nanny that everyone loved in the early '90s is coming back to the big screen.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Fox 2000 is developing a sequel to the 1993 hit movie "Mrs. Doubtfire." It will reunite "Harry Potter" director Chris Columbus and actor Robin Williams.

Williams, now 62, won a Golden Globe for a portrayal of an out-of-work actor and recently divorced father who, in order to become closer to his children, disguises himself as a female Scottish nanny.

The movie also starred Sally Field as Williams' ex-wife and Pierce Brosnan as her boyfriend.

The comedy grossed $219 million domestically and $222 million internationally, which made it a huge hit in 1993.

The script is being written by David Berenbaum, who also wrote Will Ferrell's "Elf" and the family movie "Haunted Mansion."

No release date has been given.
