It’s been over 30 years since cute little Macaulay Culkin graced film screens as forgotten-kid-turned-burglar-catcher Kevin McCallister in “Home Alone.”
And now the enduring vacation movie is getting the remake remedy with Disney+’s upcoming flick, “Home Sweet Home Alone.” So will Culkin, 41, return to his roots and make an look within the new household movie?
Well, sorry, ya filthy animals! Culkin confirmed on Wednesday that he’s not part of the sequence reboot.
“Hey y’all. Just a heads up since I’ve been getting this question a lot today: I am NOT in the new ‘Home Alone’ reboot,” he wrote on Twitter. “I wish all involved the best of luck though.”
The film follows 10-year-old Max Mercer (performed by “Jojo Rabbit” star Archie Yates), who’s by chance left behind by his household after they depart for a household journey. Like the unique, he should battle robbers after they break into his residence, this time going through off in opposition to Pam (Ellie Kemper) and Jeff (Rob Delaney).
It seems “Home Sweet Home Alone” will acknowledge the unique movie. Devin Ratray, who performed Kevin’s bullying huge brother Buzz within the first movie, makes a cameo within the trailer as a cop with a badge that claims “McCallister.”
The screenplay was written by “Saturday Night Live” writers Mikey Day and Streeter Seidell and directed by Dan Mazer. “SNL” comic Kenan Thompson co-stars alongside Timothy Simons, Pete Holmes, Ally Maki and Chris Parnell.
1990’s “Home Alone” was written by legendary ’80s filmmaker John Hughes and directed by Chris Columbus. It featured the skills of Joe Pesci, John Heard and Catherine O’Hara. A sequel, entitled “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York,” was launched in 1992.
This remake was first introduced in 2019 and can be launched on the streaming service on Nov. 12.
