We’re also focused on leveraging Fox’s vast library of great titles to further enrich the content mix on our DTC platforms – for example, reimagining Home Alone, Night at the Museum, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid for a new generation on Disney+.

As far as these development projects go, the only one I’ve heard rumblings about is the reimagining of Home Alone, which could turn the tables and follow a husband and wife who go to war with a young boy who has stolen something from them, rather than the original premise of a young boy who goes to war with a pair of inept thieves looking to rob his house. Word on the street is that Borat scribe Dan Mazer is the top choice to direct, and Melissa McCarthy is being eyed to star, but it also sounds like everything is still up in the air, and the studio hasn’t settled on a direction just yet.

Melissa McCarthy as one of the crooks trying to break into the house would be gold.

Why can’t we just get a movie that’s a direct sequel to the first two Home Alone movies, with Macaulay Culkin actually in it, even if he isn’t the main focus? :(

This makes no sense. How are they going to capitalize on name recognition without using the same name?

Quote:
Skyler Shuler: This film is drawing from Home Alone, but Disney+ plans to give the film a completely different title altogether.

Q: That's because the plot is different, right?

Skyler Shuler: Similar beats but yes it’ll be different.

Quote:
Q: So 'Home Alone: Subtitle', or 'New Title, Zero Connection to Established IP'?

Skyler Shuler: New title, this film will have ZERO connections to any of the existing Home Alone films.

Q: So basically 'Home Alone' inspired?

Skyler Shuler: Yes.
