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.

The new Home Alone film will follow a husband and wife who go to war with a young boy, Max, who has stolen from them. Max is being described as an energetic, witty nine-year-old boy with a mischievous side. He feels wise beyond his years and has the personality to easily converse with adults—plus the uncanny ability to relentlessly push their buttons. But, he also displays a sense of innocence and a kind heart much like the original protagonist. Sources tell Observer that the studio is looking for a big name for the female lead.

Dan Mazer (Who Is America?) is in talks to direct a script co-written by Saturday Night Live veterans Mikey Day and Streeter Seidel. Hutch Parker (Logan) and Dan Wilson (Patriots Day) are producing and Fox is eyeing a February 2020 start date.

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? :(
