A Christmas Story Sequel: Peter Billingsley to Return? Read On

‘A Christmas Story’ will finally get a sequel, with original star Peter Billingsley slated to reprise his role as well as produce. Clay Kaytis will helm the picture, which is based on a script by Nick Schenk.

A box office failure when it first premiered in 1983, ‘A Christmas Story’ has become one of the most beloved holiday movies in cinema history. Much of the story’s appeal is its simple, nostalgic story about Ralphie (Billingsley), a 1940s kid who desperately wants a Red Ryder BB rifle that everyone, including the local mall Santa, tells him will shoot his eyes out.

Warner Bros. and Legendary are backing the production, reports variety.com. The new film will take place in the 1970s, with the adult Ralphie bringing his family to his childhood home for Christmas.

While the original was shot in Cleveland and Toronto, the home where the movie is shot has even become a tourist attraction, the new film will begin production in Hungary in February.
