Fans of “A Christmas Story” are finally getting a sequel to the beloved holiday movie.
Legendary and Warner Bros are coming together to create “A Christmas Story Christmas”, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The outlet also reports that Peter Billingsley, the child star who played Ralphie in the original 1983 movie, will produce the sequel.
Billingsley previously acted as a producer on the Broadway Musical adaptation of “A Christmas Story”.
Variety reports that the film “will see an adult Ralphie return to his house on Cleveland Street to deliver his kids a magical Christmas like the one he had growing up. With the same attention-to-real-life tone of the first, Ralphie reconnects with childhood friends, reconciles the passing of his Old Man and sows the seeds for the origins of the beloved holiday classic.”
Meanwhile, Deadline reports that four other cast members from the original will be joining Billingsley to reprise their characters: Ian Petrella (Randy), Zack Ward (Scut Farkus), Scott Schwartz (Flick) and R.D. Robb (Schwartz).
Production is set to begin this month in Hungary.
