Hollywood continues to develop remakes of classic films.
The 1946 film, It’s A Wonderful Life will live on as a sequel. The follow-up to the film will follow George Bailey’s grandson, with his guardian angel being played by Karolyn Grimes.
The original film starred James Stewart and the producer of this film has big shoes to fill.
“The storyline of the new film retains the spirit of the original –- every life is important as long as you have friends,” producer Bob Farnsworth told Variety in a statement.
No release date and other casting news for this film has been released at this time.

Michael Keaton is reportedly ready to don that signature black & white striped suit again.
Sources close to the project have told Variety that director Tim Burton and Keaton are in talks to film a sequel to Beetlejuice.
Seth Grahame Smith has written the script and will produce with partner David Katzenberg through KatzSmith Productions. Grahame-Smith recently tweeted that he had big news on the horizon, but he didn’t go into detail about the information.
Keaton had been interested in returning to the role ever since Warner Bros. announced plans to green-light a sequel. Burton has not been a cheerleader of sequels, as the last one he made was Batman Returns in 1992.
The original Beetlejuice film was released in 1988 and starred Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis and Winona Ryder alongside Michael Keaton.
