67 years later, a nostalgic holiday classic is getting a sequel. It's A Wonderful Life is one of the most watched and most beloved holiday films of all time, and it sounds like we will soon get a sequel to the five time Oscar nominated movie, which will be called It's a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story. This project was revisited by Hummingbird Productions music producer, Bob Farnsworth, who had often wondered what would have happened to the fictional family after the movie. So, after doing some research Farmsworth found that the movie was old enough that the rights were public domain, so he partnered up with former Bob Hope staff writer Martha Bolton to write a screenplay that will bring together not just the story of Wonderful Life but also themes from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Story. In the sequel we will find out what happened to both George Bailey and Zuzu, and it will focus on Baily's troubled grandson who gets visited by aunt Zuzu who is now an angel. Zuzu will attempt to show him what the world would have been like, if he had never been born. Karolyn Grimes, who originally played Zuzu when she was six years old, is set to reprise her role. Sequels are tricky, especially for a fanbase that has loved and obsessed over a movie for so long, but Farnsworth knows that ahead of time and feels like what they have done on this project is honorable and worthy of a fair shot. He said quote "Look, no one can make another It's a Wonderful Life. But our story is solid, and we are going in with our eyes open. There is no doubt about it, there will be a ruckus. But I have this motto: All it takes to be a leader is to have a cause you believe in. And the stronger you believe in the cause, the more adversaries you will have. And we strongly believe in this." It's a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story will have a modest budget of around $25 to $30 million, and the plan right now is to have it hit theaters during the holiday season of 2015. So, do you think that audiences will want to see a sequel to It's A Wonderful Life? Sound off right here, or over on Facebook and Twitter as well at ClevverMovies.
