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.
Source: https://twitter.com/SkylerShuler/status ... 6127734785

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.

Home Alone director Chris Columbus says Disney+ reboot is 'a waste of time'
https://ew.com/movies/home-alone-direct ... e-of-time/

Quote:
"Nobody got in touch with me about it, and it's a waste of time as far as I'm concerned," Columbus said of the reboot in an interview with Insider. "What's the point? I'm a firm believer that you don't remake films that have had the longevity of Home Alone. You're not going to create lightning in a bottle again. It's just not going to happen. So why do it? It's like doing a paint-by-numbers version of a Disney animated film — a live-action version of that. What's the point? It's been done. Do your own thing. Even if you fail miserably, at least you have come up with something original."

It needs to be said more often. No that it would make any difference, they don't really care about artistic integrity.

What a horrible title. Based on the synopsis, the plot doesn't sound great either.

Quote:
Today, Disney+ announced 20th Century Studios’ “Home Sweet Home Alone,” an all-new adventure comedy from the beloved holiday film franchise, will debut November 12, 2021 exclusively on the streaming service.

Max Mercer is a mischievous and resourceful young boy who has been left behind while his family is in Japan for the holidays. So when a married couple attempting to retrieve a priceless heirloom set their sights on the Mercer family’s home, it is up to Max to protect it from the trespassers…and he will do whatever it takes to keep them out. Hilarious hijinks of epic proportions ensue, but despite the absolute chaos, Max comes to realize that there really is no place like home sweet home. The film stars Ellie Kemper (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Rob Delaney (“Deadpool 2”), Archie Yates (“Jojo Rabbit”), Aisling Bea (“Living with Yourself”), Kenan Thompson (“Saturday Night Live”), Tim Simons (“Veep”), Pete Holmes (“The Secret Life of Pets 2”), Devin Ratray (“Home Alone”), Ally Maki (“Toy Story 4”), Chris Parnell (“Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”) and is directed by Dan Mazer (“Dirty Grandpa”).

The screenplay is by Mikey Day & Streeter Seidell (“Saturday Night Live”), story by Mikey Day & Streeter Seidell and John Hughes (“Home Alone”) based on a screenplay by John Hughes. Hutch Parker (“X-Men: Dark Phoenix”) and Dan Wilson (“Patriots Day”) serve as producers, with Jeremiah Samuels (“Stuber”) serving as executive producer.

So Buzz will be back in this…… Macaulay Culkin was also stated to cameo, if that is still the case…

And they said streaming movies will be made to the level of quality of theatrical releases, and not just look like the new outlet for direct-to-video crap.

It's weird that the protagonist is a British kid, but the film is set in the U.S. What's the point of doing that? In any case, the movie looks pretty bad. I didn't expect anything original, but this looks boring and joyless. The kid is obnoxious instead of endearing and lacks charisma. The villains are neutered and the attempts at comedy fall flat. If they wanted to make more Home Alone movies, why not do a sequel instead of a reboot? They could get Macaulay Culkin back as the dad or something. At least, that would have appealed to nostalgic millennials. This one appeals to no one.
