I thought that Hollywood had run out of ideas when I read about the Ghost TV show that was in the works (read here). Now, in what can only be fueled by greed that rivals Mr. Potter, Star Partners and Hummingbird Prods. are collaborating on a sequel to It's A Wonderful Life. Yes, a SEQUEL! It what can only be seen as the worst idea since the official Christmas Story 2 sequel, Hollywood is attempting a sequel of one of the most beloved films ever made.
“The sequel, titled ‘It’s a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story,’ is being financed by Allen J. Schwalb of Star Partners who will also produce along with Bob Farnsworth of Hummingbird. The duo are aiming to get the movie into theaters for the 2015 holiday season.
Karolyn Grimes, who played George Bailey’s daughter ‘Zuzu’ in the original, will return for the ‘Wonderful Life’ sequel as an angel who shows Bailey’s unlikeable grandson (also named George Bailey) how much better off the world would have been had he never been born”. - Variety
Wow so they got the only surviving cast member to play an angel. Frank Capra, the original's director, had a sequel in mind a long time ago. Thankfully, that never came to fruition. However, at least Capra would have been the logical choice to direct and probably gotten Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed involved. This just makes me disgusted. Sound off below.
