A sequel to the beloved movie It’s a Wonderful Life is reportedly in the works for a release in the 2015 holiday season, according to Variety.
The movie will be titled It’s A Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story and will star Karolyn Grimes, who played the role of George Bailey’s daughter Zuzu in the original film and said the iconic line “Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings!”
In the new film, Karolyn will play an angel who shows George Bailey’s unlikeable grandson (who has the same name) “how much better off the world world have been had he never been born.”
“The storyline of the new film retains the spirit of the original – every life is important as long as you have friends,” screenwriter and producer Bob Farnsworth said.
“The new film will retain the feeling of the original, and it simply must be shared,” Karolyn 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. The script by Bob Farnsworth and Martha Bolton was wonderful, and I wanted to be involved with his version of the film immediately.”
