Kevin McCallister was one unlucky kid, to say the least. His parents not only forgot him at home for Christmas, but they also left him fending off thieves again in New York City another year. His only solace was old movies and one nice woman with a thousand pigeons.
According to Deadline, McCallister will get a break in the new flick that’s expected next year. A similar role will be played by Archie Yates, who appeared in the recent film Jojo Rabbit. His parents will be played by Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and Rob Delaney (Catastrophe.) There is no news yet if Macaulay Culkin or Donald Trump will be making appearances.
The fourth reimagining of Home Alone is set to begin shooting in Canada early next year. The plot is still a mystery, but Iger says that it will be fit “for a new generation.”
During the conference call in which he announced Home Alone, Iger also mentioned Night at the Museum, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and Cheaper by the Dozen as films that Disney inherited from its Fox takeover. They could all shine on Disney+ soon.
