'It's a Wonderful Life' sequel: Planned for Christmas 2015... or April Fools' Day?

Sixty-seven years after Clarence got his wings, a sequel has been announced for It’s a Wonderful Life. Frank Capra’s 1946 movie, in which an idealistic but desperate family man (Jimmy Stewart) imagines his town if he’d never been born, is a beloved holiday classic. Generations have grown up watching George Bailey spend his life helping others, only to find himself suicidal and wanted by the police after a financial calamity at the family’s ol’ savings and loan. To keep him from jumping off a bridge, an angel-in-training named Clarence shows him that all his good deeds haven’t been in vain.

Now, Star Partners and Hummingbird Productions are promising to show what happened after George got his family back and realized he was the “richest man in town.” In a press release for the project, which was first reported by Variety, the filmmakers announced, “Scheduled for release during the 2015* holiday season, the plot of It’s a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story will answer the questions: ‘Whatever happened to George Bailey?’ ‘Did Mr. Potter really got away with stealing $8,000?’ and ‘Did George ever get to build those bridges?'”

Oscar contenders invite you to go dashing through the snow -- SONG


The Academy has taken a slight break from golden statues to sing a little about silver bells.

Ed Burns and Connie Britton together again in 'The Fitzgerald Family Christmas' -- EXCLUSIVE ONE SHEET

Ed Burns definitely loves mining his Irish-American roots, as he did for his 1995 sibling flick The Brothers McMullen. He’s returned to similar territory with his upcoming film The Fitzgerald Family Christmas, about a large working class brood whose estranged dad wants to visit for Christmas. The movie, also starring, written and directed by Burns, is out nationwide on VOD and iTunes Nov. 21, and in theaters Dec. 7.

The film reunites Burns with McMullen co-stars Mike McGlone and Connie Britton (such an “it” gal in Nashville). Britton, who played Burns’ character’s sister-in-law in McMullen, is his luscious-haired love interest in Fitzgerald.

“Connie and I had been talking about a sequel to McMullen, and that’s when we first started talking about working together. We remained friends over the years. I told her about this script I was shooting over the winter, and I knew she was busy with the show,” Burns says. “The minute she said ‘yes,’ I wrote the part for her, fleshed it out. She and I knew immediately that we had great chemistry together, and a lot of laughs about the fact that it felt a little incestuous. In McMullen, she’s my brother’s wife. I love working with her.”
