It's a Wonderful Life ... to get a SEQUEL!?!?!

Yep. Someone gave this a green light.

Sequel to Frank Capra’s ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ Aiming for 2015 Release



That rumbling you feel is the rising tempers of film fans all over the globe. But the holidays are approaching, and maybe we should learn to forgive. That’s the only way to process the wild news that a sequel to Frank Capra‘s 1946 film It’s A Wonderful Life is now in the works.

The tentatively titled It’s A Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story, written by Bob Farnsworth and Martha Bolton, follows the angel of George Bailey’s daughter Zuzu (Karolyn Grimes, who’ll reprise the role) as she teaches Bailey’s evil grandson (also named George Bailey) how different the world would have been if he’d never been born. Producers are currently looking at directors and hope to shoot the $25-$35 million film in Louisiana early next year for a Holiday 2015 release.

Variety broke the news of this film and spoke to Grimes:
The new film will retain the feeling of the original, and it simply must be shared. I’ve probably read close to 20 scripts over the years suggesting a sequel to ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’ but none of them were any good. The script by Bob Farnsworth and Martha Bolton was wonderful, and I wanted to be involved with his version of the film immediately.
If there’s ever been a movie that doesn’t need a sequel, it’s It’s A Wonderful Life. The original is just so magical, perfect and delivers its message so beautifully. From the description, it sounds almost as if this film has the exact same point, but just changes the setting and ages the characters (Variety also reports other living cast members could return). If that’s the case, I’d rather just watch the original film because no matter whom they cast as the young George Bailey, he won’t be Jimmy Stewart. And no matter whom they get to direct, it won’t be Frank Capra.

Anyone else as flabbergasted by this news as I am? Is there any way this could be a good thing?

Christmas Vacation, Christmas Story and Bad Santa are the best/entertaining Christmas movies IMO

First, horrid idea and not surprising considering Hollywood sucks so much scrotum, they should probably get a jumbo-sized set of those balls that hillbillies put on the back of their trucks, and drape them over the "Hollywood" sign near Dane's house.


Second, I'm glad that Hollywood is incredibly averse to all things Judeo-Christian, in that I will never see my beloved Yul Brynner besmirched in some god-awful "Moses, The Musical 10"-horseshit.

A quick cursory check and this sounds like a whole lot of bullshit to me.

Bob Farnsworth has absolutely zero screenwriting credits. Martha Bolton is old as **** and was a writer for Bob Hope.

Who in the world would give them $25 million to shoot that script? Doesn't RKO have the rights to a sequel since they own the film?

It seems rather fishy.

I like the part where he puts his tongue on a frozen pole. Then goes to the island of misfit toys and looks for the meaning of Christmas.

The abominable snowman putting a star on the tree always brings tears to my eyes.

Ehhh, why. The movie is great on its own.

Instead of hoping the zombie apocalypse starts in Denver, I'm now shifting it to Hollywood.

Except there's no studio listed, no producer(s) listed, hack screenwriters and filming is scheduled in Louisiana.

Um, Hollywood? No.

You make some good points, but filming in Louisiana isn't one of them.

I made the point because there is no indication that "Hollywood" is in any way, shape or form, blatantly associated with this production.

Producers and studios choose to shoot in New Orleans due to the tax credits (other states like New Mexico offer them as well). It's a MAJOR issue in the state of California and causes resentment amongst the locals.

Something needs to be done to keep filming in state but the legislators have failed to act. It costs the local economy hundreds of millions, if not billions.

Don't have such negativity. You should send your positivity and good vibes directly to DMCD's brain pan. Wanna buy a flute?

I love flutes, I'll take two.

Why do I feel like I'm missing something, like maybe cross-thread humor?
