Kevin missed the plane 30 years ago! Disney is looking at a remake of Mom I missed the plane for its Disney + platform. Goodbye Macaulay Culkin and make way for Archie Yates (Jojo rabbit). Directed by Dan Mazer (Dirty Grandpa), the film should have in its cast Ellie Kemper (Umbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and Rob Delaney (Disaster). A reboot that does not particularly please Chris Columbus, director of the original work.
“What is the point ? wondered the filmmaker on November 12 during an interview on Insider. I firmly believe that we do not make remakes of films that have had the longevity that Mom I missed the plane”. In this interview, Chris Columbus explains that he was not contacted to direct the film or to ask him for any advice. No regrets, “it’s a waste of time for meHe maintains. “You are not going to create a new tour de force. It will not happen. So why do it?“
The director of Mrs. Doubtfire, The bicentennial man or the first two Harry potter has only one tip: “Do your own thing. Even if you fail miserably, at least you’ve found something original.The filmmaker even admits that the second part (1992), Mom, I missed the plane again, is actually a remake of the first one. “Is it necessary that it exists? Yes, because some of these stunts make me laugh a lot, but I don’t believe it should be done again.“
The reboot ordered by Disney will therefore not have the blessing of its creator, somewhat resigned. “Listen, have fun. I just feel the urge to do something new. Life is short.On these somewhat melancholy words from Chris Columbus, Macaulay Culkin instead sees the opportunity to laugh. “This is what an updated version of Mom, I missed the plane, ”the actor wrote on Instagram. Less seller than the reboot? Not so sure.
