‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ sequel underway

The sequel on Frank Capra’s classic Christmas tale will focus on George Bailey’s grandson, who doesn’t have such a wonderful life.

George Bailey had such a wonderful film life that he’s getting a sequel.

A new version of Frank Capra’s 1946 classic Christmas tale It’s a Wonderful Life is underway, the Hollywood trade publication Varietyreported on Monday.

The sequel, titled It’s A Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story, is expected in theaters for the 2015 holiday season.

It has a bit of the original movie’s magic with a twist.

Karolyn Grimes, who played George Bailey’s daughter Zuzu in the original, will return for the sequel as an angel who shows Bailey’s unlikable grandson (also named George Bailey) how much better off the world would have been had he never been born.

“The new film will retain the feeling of the original, and it simply must be shared,” Grimes said. “I’ve probably read close to 20 scripts over the years suggesting a sequel to It’s a Wonderful Life but none of them were any good.”
