Is nothing fucking sacred
Listen to the cunt. "A leader". You're pissing on the memory of one of the best films ever ya dick, not bringing democracy to the Middle East!The new film is being put together by Allen J Schwalb, whose Florida-based Star Partners firm financed Rain Man and The Color Purple during the 1980s. He will work with Bob Farnsworth of Nashville-based commercial music specialists Hummingbird Productions on the project. The latter co-wrote the screenplay for the followup after discovering that Capra's film was out of copyright in the US.
"It's a Wonderful Life is about showing a good guy can win. And with Scrooge, you have a person that is not a good guy but he changes," Farnsworth told The Hollywood Reporter. "This story is about the amazing human capacity to forgive when we see someone change for the better."
Of suggestions that audiences may balk at seeing one festive favourite - let alone two - revived in unfamiliar form, the screenwriter said: "Look, no one can make another It's a Wonderful Life. But our story is solid, and we are going in with our eyes open. There is no doubt about it, there will be a ruckus. But I have this motto: All it takes to be a leader is to have a cause you believe in. And the stronger you believe in the cause, the more adversaries you will have. And we strongly believe in this."
Farnsworth received help on the screenplay from Martha Bolton, who worked with Bob Hope as a staff writer on the comedian's specials. Producers are currently on the hunt for a director and plan to secure a budget in the $25-32m range. They hope to bring the sequel to the big screen in 2015.
