Sorry, Home Alone fans because Hollywood is doing a remake of the Christmas classic.
Archie Yates, Ellie Kemper, and Rob Delaney will star in the ‘Home Alone’ reboot. Read on for more on the Home Alone Reboot Cast…
CelebNMovies247.com reports that ‘Jojo Rabbit’ breakout actor Archie Yates has landed the main role, but it won’t the beloved Macaulay Culkin’s beloved character Kevin McAllister, but a new youngster who finds himself in a similar premise
The original Christmas film, released in 1990, saw Kevin being mistakenly left behind in America when his family flies to Paris for the holidays.
Well, the new ‘Home Alone’ will be directed by Dan Mazer, whose previous credits include ‘Dirty Grandpa’. The script has been penned by ‘Saturday Night Live’ writers Mikey Day and Streeter Seidell.
Culkin, 39, posted a tongue-in-cheek response on Twitter when it was revealed that ‘Home Alone’ is being rebooted.
The star posted a picture of him lazily lounging on the sofa with a laptop and plates of food, stating:
What an updated Home Alone would actually look like.
Sly Stallone made his own version:
In a later post, he joked that he could be involved in the remake, writing:
Hey @Disney, call me.
As well as ‘Home Alone’, Disney is also remaking ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’, ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids’ and ‘Diary of Wimpy Kid’ for their streaming service.
Disney chief Bob Iger confirmed that these franchises are being “re-imagined for a new generation.”
Oh, Hollywood the originality is once again dead and only $$$$ makes sense. #SMH
