A Christmas Story Christmas (2022, D: Kaytis) - S: Peter Billingsley

Christmas has come early for Legendary and Warner Bros.

The two companies are gearing up to make a sequel to the yuletide holiday classic, A Christmas Story, closing a deal for Peter Billingsley, the child star of the original 1983 movie, to topline and produce.

Titled A Christmas Story Christmas, the feature will be directed by Clay Kaytis, who already tackled the snowy holiday season with The Christmas Chronicles for Netflix and has a script by Nick Schenk, the writer behind recent Clint Eastwood movies such as Gran Torino and The Mule, sitting under the leg lamp.

Billingsley is producing with Vince Vaughn via the duo’s Wild West Picture Show Productions.

While the original movie followed Ralphie, a nine-year old boy who desperately wanted a Red Ryder BB rifle and was set in 1940, the new story will take place in the 1970s and sees an adult Ralphie return to his house on Cleveland Street to deliver his kids a magical Christmas like the one he had growing up.

The studio is hoping to recreate the same real-life tone of the first movie to show the now-father reconnect with childhood friends, reconcile the passing of his Old Man, and callbacks to the initial film.

Production begins February in Hungary.

Iíve never been a huge fan of A Christmas Story, but it could be interesting seeing a sequel with an adult version of Ralphie as either the father or grandfather. Might check it out.

A little surprised it took this long to do a sequel with actors from the original but I guess without Billingsley or McGavin what would be the point. Billingsley looks okay but who knows if he can act. Melinda Dillon is really old.

Did you guys know Billingsly was a producer on Iron Man? I sure didn't.
Checking IMDB, it looks like Melinda Dillon hasn't acted since 2007.

Thatís one of those bits of trivia thatís slowly becoming ďone of those bits of trivia that everyone knowsĒ. It seems Billingsly has had a pretty steady working relationship with Jon Favreau for quite awhile.

Heís also got a few cameo appearances on the MCU as well.

I've never seen A Christmas Story. I know what it's about... but I've never sat down and actually watched more than 15 minutes of it.

Lots of films shoot there.

Why COVID Couldn’t Stop the Hungarian Production Boom
The Hungarian film industry has bounced back from the COVID-19 downturn, thanks to a rapid response, a supportive government, and a reputation as the go-to location for high-end production.

EXCLUSIVE: A Christmas Story Christmas, Warner Bros. and Legendary’s sequel to A Christmas Story for HBO Max, continues to ramp up its cast, adding four actors from the original 1983 film: Ian Petrella (Randy), Zack Ward (Scut Farkus), Scott Schwartz (Flick) and R.D. Robb (Schwartz).

The film follows an adult Ralphie (Peter Billingsley, reprising his starring role) in the 1970s as he returns to the 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.

I wonder if they'll have Flick get involved in adult films.
