Ms. Doubtfire director Chris Columbus has confirmed that there is an R-rated version of her beloved family film, starring Robin Williams as a transvestite nanny.
Fans begged movie directors to release the un-family-friendly version of the film after news of the alternative hit the internet last week, prompting Columbus to face the blast from Twitter.
He revealed that he shot some improvisation scenes of Williams during production, but insists they are unlikely to see the light of day.
“The reality is that there was a deal between Robin and myself, which was to do one or two, three scripted takes, and then he would say, ‘So let me play’.” Chris tells EW.com. “And we were basically going between 15 and 22 takes.
“It would go into territory at times that wouldn’t be appropriate for a PG-13 movie, but certainly appropriate and hilarious for an R-rated movie … I remember it was outrageously funny material,” Columbus said, adding that a documentary would be “the best approach” to invisible material.
The filmmaker told the outlet that he would only consider releasing the R-rated scenes for a documentary about the making of Ms Doubtfire. (KL / EW / LOT)
