Chance The Rapper Working on Pitch for Home Alone Reboot.
Chance The Rapper has plans on rebooting the classic 1990s film, Home Alone.
On Friday night (May 14), Chance appeared remotely on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where he talked about some of his upcoming moves including plans to remake the beloved John Hughes film, which originally starred Macaulay Culkin.
“It’s a secret thing. I’m working on…I got this pitch for a Home Alone reboot,” Chano revealed. “As a lot of people know…I’m sure everybody here is a huge fan of Home Alone and John Hughes. Chicago guy, Macaulay Culkin, it’s a Chicago film. Since I was young, I always watched it and I was like, ‘What if there was a hood Home Alone?’ Or Hood Alone, if you will. Just a little more realistic story about what happens when people try to kick in the doors at the wrong house. Hilarity ensues. I can’t give you too many details, but yeah.”
The original Home Alone, also starring Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, John Heard and Catherine O’Hara, centers around Kevin McCallister (Culkin), an eight-year-old child who is forced to find a way to thwart robbers after being left at home by his parents during Christmas. There were four sequels to the film. There is already an official reboot of the movie in the works, which is being directed by Dan Mazer. It is currently in post production, according to IMDB.
Chance has been stepping into the visual side of entertainment recently with his House of Kicks production company. On Friday, the Grammy-winning rapper premiered his Magnificent Coloring World film concert in Chicago.
Tyler, The Creator
Tyler, The Creator knew he would be winning a Grammy a long time ago. In 10 years, he refined his craft and put actual truth behind the initial tweet. He even saved the post so he could likely go back and laugh at his doubters after the fact.
