‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ Sequel In The Works For Holiday 2015 Release
  |  @   |  

Well this should go over well.

It’s being reported that a sequel is in the works for It’s A Wonderful Life, the Oscar nominated 1946 Frank Capra classic starring James Stewart as a man who does nothing but help others but buckles under the stress of trying to stop a greedy man from taking over and destroying the town he lives in, and plans to commit suicide thinking it would be best for his wife and children before a guardian angel shows him just what life would be like for those closest to him had he never existed.

The sequel, titled It’s A Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story, will tell the story of Stewart’s George Bailey character’s grandson…also named George Bailey…who, unlike his grandfather, is very unlikable, and must be shown how much better the world would be if he had never been born.

The sequel is being developed in a collaboration between Hummingbird Productions and Star Partners, with the screenplay being written by Bob Farnsworth and Martha Bolton.

No director is attached yet, but the plan is to spend between $25 million and $32 million making the movie, and having it released for the 2015 holiday season.

It’s A Wonderful Life actress Karolyn Grimes is already attached to return, and other actors who were in the original and are still alive are also in talks to appear in the sequel.

Of the project, Grimes said:

“Of course, no one can remake “˜It’s a Wonderful Life.’ But this new script absolutely provides the answers to the questions everyone’s been asking for so many years.”

Do you have any interest in seeing a sequel to It’s A Wonderful Life?
