The 'Home Alone' Reboot Has Found Its Lead Boy
'Jojo Rabbit' star Archie Yates will star alongside Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney
Published Dec 11, 2019A Home Alone reboot will begin shooting in Montreal early next year. And while we all wish the movie would star Macaulay Culkin, a different boy has been cast as the lead.
Archie Yates, who broke out with scene-stealing turns in Jojo Rabbit, will star in the film alongside Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney. The reboot is being directed by Dirty Grandpa helmer Dan Mazer based on a script from SNL's Mikey Day and Streeter Seidell.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new movie will have nothing to do with the original Home Alone movies. Instead, the film follows "a wife and husband who, in order to save their home from financial ruin, go to war with a kid who has stolen a priceless heirloom."
The new Home Alone will shoot in Montreal from February until mid-April before arriving on Disney+.
