A sequel to It's a Wonderful Life is being produced for some reason or another let's do everyone a favor and imagine modern day sequels for other classic Christmas movies.
Dave McNary of Variety reported today that a sequel to Frank Capra's 1946 It's a Wonderful Life is in the works. It will be about the grandson of Jimmy Stewart's character George Bailey, who has apparently turned out to be sort of a jerk and is taught by an angel about how the world would have been better off without him. The angel will be played by Karolyn Grimes, who played the young Zuzu Bailey in the original film and seems to be milking this for all it's worth. Let's be honest: this probably isn't going to be very good. But if you're really on a kick to see all your Christmas classics remade, here are a few options.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays the grandson of Rosemary Clooney's and Bing Crosby's characters. A failing Broadway star, he's overshadowed by memories of his famous grandfather. In order to find inspiration, he goes to the inn in Vermont where his grandparents fell in love. There, he meets Anna Kendrick, the daughter of the characters played by Danny Kaye and Vera Ellen. They sing Irving Berlin songs, put on a show, and get romantic.
