Ryan Reynolds has a lit of projects lined up. He is also working with Netflix on the upcoming action movie, code red. However, he is in the news lately for the sequel of Home Alone. Home Alone was first released in 1990. It has become a Christmas classic. It is hard to imagine Christmas without the movie. The first home alone movie earned more than 400 million dollars at the box office. So, creating a similar successful project is a tough task. However, Ryan Reynolds and Disney have something new for the fans. They are trying to create an adult version of the movie “Stoned Alone”.
Chris Columbus’s comment on the sequel
It has angered a few fans and the director of the original movie. Chris Columbus is known for Home Alone. But, he is not happy with the decision of a remake. Chris showed his disagreement in a recent interview:
“When I read about something called Stoned Alone, they were going to do with Ryan – it was an R-rated Home Alone movie about stoners – I thought to myself… this is just an insult to the art of cinema. If you’re making a comedy, a musical, no matter what film I’m making, my goal is to treat it with the same respect as if I was making The Godfather.
Home Alone is not The Godfather, but you have to treat it with that kind of respect and this idea of remaking things that already exist and are working well? Watch the original! Forget about it. It’s just never going to be as good. 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?”Advertisement
Chris is not happy with the r-rated of a Christmas movie. According to him, it is a disgrace to the cinema. He thinks Hollywood should stop creating sequels. However, there are many fans of the Home Alone franchise that agree with Chris’s comment on the upcoming sequel of the movie. A lot of old movies get reboot and sequels all the time. However, these sequels do not get positive reviews from the audience and critics as well.
