Chris Columbus, the director of the movie Mom, I Missed the Plane takes a very negative view of the reboot project being prepared by Disney.

For Chris Colombus, this project is a “waste of time” because there will be no “new tour de force” . He expresses his distress to Insider : “No one has contacted me about this and it is a waste of time for me. I'm a firm believer in remakes of movies that have had Mom's longevity, I Missed the Plane (Home Alone in VO). Do your own thing. Even if you fail miserably, at unless you found something original “.
If he is sorry that he was not contacted about the project (at least to be asked for his permission) – the realization of which was entrusted to Dan Mazer ( Dirty Grandpa ) – he admits that he can criticize himself on a point: Home Alone 2 was already a kind of remake of the first one. “I can blame myself with Mum, I missed plane 2. This movie is basically a remake of the first Home Alone. Does it need to exist? Yes, because some of these stunts really make me laugh, that's why I don't believe it should be done again! “, he explains to Insider. Happy or not, unfortunately for him, Disney does not intend to change his mind and plans to resume filming shortly under little. The story will center on a new child named Max (and no longer Kevin from Macaulay Culkin), played by Archie Yates (Jojo Rabbit) .
