Your favorite childhood Christmas film is getting a reboot, and yes Disney is responsible for it.
As you have probably heard, Disney is making a ‘Home Alone‘ reboot for their Disney Plus streaming service. The film will be directed by Dan Mazer, who will be working with a script from Streeter Seidell and Mikey Day.
According to a recent report, Archie Yates will be starring in the movie. He will not play another version of Kevin McCallister. Instead, he’ll be a new character in a similar predicament as Kevin.
Yates co-starred in the recent film ‘Jojo Rabbit‘ and he was pretty funny in the movie, so I’m happy with that casting decision, even if I’m unhappy with the idea of a reboot.
Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney are also set to star, but their roles are unknown at this time.
Though originally thought to be Yates’ parents, sources now say Kemper and Delaney will be playing someone else in the film, possibly another couple not related to Yates.
No word on an exact release date.
